Maggie's Penguin Parade
Join in the march!
DACC members are invited to come together to co-sponsor a Penguin sculpture and be part of an exciting visitor trail later this year.
For three months in Summer 2018 the streets of Dundee and the surrounding region will be home to a trail of individually designed and beautifully decorated giant penguin sculptures showcasing the wealth of artistic talent in the area, creating economic and cultural benefits for Dundee. This project is brought to you by Maggie’s Centre Dundee, in partnership with Wild in Art and will raise significant funds to support Maggie’s vital work caring for local people affected by cancer.
DACC members have the opportunity to collaborate and come together to co-sponsor one sculpture at a cost of £300 + VAT per participant. Not every company in the region will be able to commit to the full sponsorship outright however there are many out there who will be able to contribute a smaller amount and take the opportunity to support this exciting campaign.
The sculpture will be located outside the DACC office at City Quay for the duration of the event before being taken to auction to help raise funds for Maggie’s Centre Dundee.
