Fighting COVID Together II follows up from the first highly successful outing of the online charity auction held on May 23rd.
For this second edition, taking place Wednesday July 22, 2020, seven of British Columbia’s most well respected philanthropic organizations are teaming up to raise much needed funds online at Able Auctions.
- BC Centre For Ability
- Cerebral Palsy Association of BC
- Doctor Peter AIDS Foundation
- Odd Squad Production Society
- Pancreatic Cancer Canada
- Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation
- Zajac Ranch for Children
Due to COVID-19 era restrictions forcing fundraising events and galas to be cancelled non-profits are in for a very tough year of fundraising.
This fun alternative fundraising event brings seven important and diverse organizations under one umbrella for one night, united in one cause – to raise awareness and funding during this unprecedented pandemic.
John Tietz, Dr. Peter AIDS CEO said, “We are so delighted to be back for round II and look forward to another very successful auction.” Tietz continued “Working with these organizations, Able Auctions, and Point Blank Shows has been such an inspiring experience for me and our team.”
There is no cost to the charitable organizations and no buyer or credit card fees to the successful bidders. Jeremy Dodd and his team at Able Auctions have donated their time, talent and financial costs for these auctions. Howard Blank & Diana Zoppa (Point Blank Shows), Rebecca Bollwitt (Miss 604), Laura Ballance (LBMG), Tracey Wade and their teams have also donated all costs to ensure that this auction maximizes revenues for these important organizations.
This auction will be upbeat, fun and fast-paced with a live audio auction online supporting each of the seven charities involved and hosted by Howard Blank. Guests can bid in real time after viewing the pictures and descriptions of each lot. A special fund-a-need option for straight tax receipting will also be offered. Participants must register (at no cost) on ableauctions.ca in advance of the live evening to be able to participate.
