Don’t forget to head down to The Galleria on Al Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi tonight for the annual Dress The Mannequin auction.

Over 20 UAE based artists have decorated small mannequins in their own unique styles and they will be auctioned off tonight to raise money for needy families in Syria.

The project, conceived by Sumayyah Al Suwaidi, is aimed at art enthusiasts all over the country as well as those looking for new and innovative ways to give charity.

“The main priority is to raise money,” says Al Suwaidi. “But we also want to give UAE talents a platform where they can be as creative as possible.”

Bids start at Dh500 and the auction begins at 7pm
