Silent auction

Nicole  ·  Mar. 18, 2007

just a short update. we are still in need of items to be donated for the silent auction on May 12.
We are really wanted some great items cause we are needing to raise lotsa coin as the vet bills money is running low.

I know some volunteers are working on some donations, if you are can you please email me asap, with info on what you have collected or who you are planning on contacting. Items can be left at SAINTS, and I will pick them up or if you can't make it out to SAINTS, let me know and a volunteer can come and pick them up from you.

More info on the auction, in case you haven't read the page:

On Saturyday, May 12, 2007, SAINTS will be holding it's first annual 'Wishes for Whiskers' silent auction fundraiser. It will be held in the Queensborough Community Centre located at 920 Ewen Avenue in New Westminster. We chose that located as we have supporters from all over the lower mainland and Queensborough is right in the middle.

We are in need of donated items for the silent auction. Suggested items are gift baskets, art work, wine, electronics, tickets to a show or theatre event, gift certificates (Restaurants, Starbucks, etc). Items should be new, or antique - no used items, please. If you provide an original retail receipt, a charitable tax receipt will be issued. A donor/donor organization’s name will appear in advertising for the event aswell as auction materials at the event. To donate an item, please contact me (Nicole) at 604-862-9738.

The evening will feature a fabulous tapas bar, live band, no-host bar and a chance for some great silent auction items and door prizes!

Tickets are $18 each and will be available to purchase online in April.

For more info please contact



Courtesy of Erica's efforts we have a second bed and breakfast weekend stay for two at Bluff Hollow Bed and Breakfast. Check out


Would it be better to send a gift certificate for a Restaurant specific to Salmon Arm or for one that is a franchise that is also in Vancouver? We have some cool places here in Salmon Arm and if someone wanted to come visit...... I'm still trying to think up something cool to send but if I can't think of anything original you'll get a gift certificate.


And we now have a donation of a weekend for two at the Oystershell Beachhouse near Powell River, with dinner for two at the nearby Laughing Oyster Restaurant at Okeover Arm:
I can guarantee it is an awesome place with awesome food!


don't forget that i have "sonny crocket" the VERY cool sock monkey that i commissioned to donate for the auction...ha ha ha...i bet EVERYONE bids on him, he is sooooo great!


Nicole, I tried replying to you twice at The message was rejected both times. Is there somewhere else I can send you an e-mail?
