The Silent Auction takes place annually in Cape Town, South Africa, to raise funds for the Michaelis Fourth Years’ graduate exhibitions, catalogues, along with the Michaelis Bursary Fund which supports many students during their time at the school. The graduate students hope to bolster this support system with a substantial contribution of their own, giving back to the community of their tertiary education.
