Q&A

I'd like to donate something to the auction. How should I do that?

It’s easy to donate using our online auction donation form, right here. If you’d prefer to email or call that’s fine too: 250-847-4238.

When should I donate by?

The sooner the better. When you donate early we can promote the items you’ve donated. Late donations won’t receive the attention that they deserve. Absolute deadline: March 1.

I'm thinking of putting something into the auction, but I'm not sure it's what you want.

Give us a call 250-847-4238 or email and we can discuss your idea.

When will the online auction take place?

It will be run from March 2 (7 AM) until the end of day on March 5 (8 PM).

Where will I find the online auction?

Right here. We’ll continue to post items as they come in.

Can I get a tax receipt for my auction donation?

Unfortunately, no. Providing receipts for items, experiences and services can become very complicated.

We can only provide receipts for monetary donations. If you’d like to make a monetary donation (cash, cheque, or online), you can do that here.
