Mark Your Calendars...the Children's Centre amazing Auction is back!

Event: Children's Centre Goods & Services Auction
Date: November 6, 2010
Time: 7pm- 10pm
Location: Quadra Community Centre

Come one, come all, to a night of pure entertainment and fun! It's here again the Children's Centre bi-annual auction. An opportunity to: dress up, listen to live music, snack on yummy appy's, collect amazing treasures, win door prizes, and support our kids. Does is get any better than that? Win, win that's what it's all about.

To be auctioned off is a huge variety of goods and services from the businesses of Quadra Island and Campbell River. Items range from the ordinary necessities, garbage tags and auto repair; the indulgent, salon time and B&B packages; and the collectable, fine pottery and woodwork. There are deals to be had, and opportunities to make it all shine. Need a thoughtful gift for friends or family, need to treat yourself, or just want to spread the love? Come and find that special item here and win a warm and fuzzy feeling to boot.

The evening starts with two “silent auctions” to get the bidding going. The Chinese auction has a playful twist because you don't know what amount other people are bidding, whereas the silent auction you can see the other bids. When the auctions close at 8pm the highest bid will be successful.
For the rest of the night sit back with a beverage and enjoy a good old fashioned auction. A token $2 buys you a paddle and allows you to bid on an incredible plethora of items donated. The purchase of your paddle also enters you for all door prizes being offered. With so many ways to get in on the action you'll be sure to go home happy.

This incredible event only happens every two years so save the date (November 6) and don't miss out.
Proceeds benefit the Quadra Children's Centre. These funds help ensure that quality affordable childcare continue to be offered to the community of Quadra by this award-winning centre.
