The Gala Auction is Saturday, November 9 at the Revival House in Stratford, ON.

The event is a lovely adventure: meeting with folks who have supported the event for many years, taking a chance on that one-of-a-kind silent auction item, or out-bidding your table-mates at the LIVE auction – it is a wonderful evening that supports the Foundation’s extensive line-up of ART | LIFE workshops in our schools.

Come join the celebration!

ART | LIFE is a wide variety of arts and life skill workshops that bring unique experiences to local kids. These exceptional hands-on experiences with professionals introduce students to richer ways of living and learning. Funding for these enrichment opportunities comes solely from fundraising efforts.

One such effort is the Gala Auction.

Please see the Gala Auction Facebook Event Page for up-to-date item listings, sponsors, news and more

We’d like to thank the countless businesses throughout Perth and Huron who donate items for the auction.

The evening would not be possible without our sponsors. We’d like to thank them for their tremendous support – many of whom have been champions of our cause for many years.
