A collection of more than 80 pieces of art, including four decorated firefighter helmets, will feature in the February 15 event at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre. Brigade fundraising co-ordinator Shannon Cole said they still had tickets to sell for the fundraiser.

‘We are calling for all art lovers and people who like having a great night out to attend to help raise money for a great cause,’ she said.

‘The brigade is trying to raise funds for their cadets that compete in National Cadet Fire Fighting Games biennially ” the next one is 2015 ” and to also raise money for equipment and furniture for our station.’

Ms Cole said they had a great response from artists and local businesses, who donated prizes, giveaways and auction items.

The exhibition would also be open on Sunday, February 16, from noon to 4pm, where people could see the artworks for a gold coin.
