Ulio and Anthony Battistessa.

Ulio, the son of Swan Valley artist Antonio Battistessa, was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma cancer more than a year ago and his leg was recently amputated due to the disease.

All art, hospitality, produce and event co-ordination for the fundraiser has been donated, with all proceeds going directly to the Ulio Jujol Battistessa Trust.

A selection of fine art and sculptures will be available by live auction, silent auction and fixed price purchase.

Caversham House will host the event at 6.30pm on August 7 and a �50s, �60s or �70s inspired formal attire is required.

Limited tickets at http://www. trybooking.com/IGHZ for $65, which includes a meal.
