Silent Auction 2019

We would like every dancer to contribute 2 items to the auction. Some ideas are tickets to a show, tickets to Calaway, hockey tickets, spa days or vouchers, gift vouchers of any variety, dance or active wear, movie tickets, one or two night stay at a hotel. 

Please send out as many emails as you can or take them into your favourite store! Don’t get disheartened it will likely take at least 10-15 emails to get 1 or 2 items, most stores respond better if you go in person. If you are still struggling to get items, people in the past have used their store loyalty points or airmiles to get items for the auction.

We need all the items in by December 1st and will arrange for a drop off in the north and south. Once the auction website is set up, we will send you all the link to send out to family and friends to get their Christmas shopping done in the comfort of their own home!
