Up at the Els Golf Club in November 2013, the one & only Rory Mcilroy was training, kindly agreeing to sign the $1 bill for a one off auction item – ‘$TORY RORY’.
It was the during my preparation for a Ferrari and fashion event at the club!
So with the signed $1 in place the piece $TORY RORY was ready to roll with a Race to Dubai bib & a Dubai Desert Classic program.
A perfect showcase on the run up to Ferraris and fashion show !
I waited a couple of months later until the CEO Masters until the original works were auction with proceeds going to Gulf 4 Good! The original signed dollar went into this Artwork called ‘$TORY RORY’ complete with the Race to Dubai bib and Dubai Desert classic memorabilia:
Which was showcased at the Dollarsandart sponsored CEO Masters.
After the 2014 Dubai Desert Classic…
With a dollarsandart limited edition print of No 26 of The Money Collection ‘ GOLFER$ CA$H’ being awarded on the night of the CEO Masters alongside some great names:-
Despite it only reaching the reserve price in an unopposed bid it was an absolute pleasure handing over the cheque to Gulf4Good founder, Brian Wilkie M.B.E at the Track, Meydan Hotel after a sociable 9 holes of golf.
Here’s to another collaboration with Rory to raise even more money in 2015!
There are only so many private commissions I can do but with the basic rules of either knowing the person or having a connection with them they’re few and far between and it really has to feel right. Feel free to contact me if this is of interest or you’re curious to find out more about this whole Dollarsandart thing….
Oh and keep an eye out for this fella….
