2020 CVCDA Online Silent Auction is underway

Oct 13, 2020 | Fundraising, News, Telethon

The proceeds of our online Silent Auction are part of the fundraising efforts for the annual Comox Valley Child Development Association’s Children’s Telethon taking place, virtually on November 1, 2020 from 12pm – 8pm.

The CVCDA’s Annual Silent Auction has typically been a great opportunity to get your Christmas shopping started or even completed. With a range of gifts from gift cards for local services and dining, over night stays, gift baskets, one of a kind artisan pieces and paintings, there is no shortage of ideas for everyone in your life. And don’t forget about yourself.

All funds raised leading up to and at the Telethon will go towards supporting children, youth, and adults and their families of the Comox Valley. Learn more or make a donation at: https://www.cvcda.ca/telethon/

Now more than ever, we need your support. Thank you for placing your bids! AND to all of the local businesses who have supported us with their donations.

How it Works

Starting Wednesday, October 7, 2020 at 12pm, visit our online auction page through 32 Auctions. Browse through our over 40 items including their images and descriptions. When you are ready to bid, you will need to create an account. Then you can begin to particpate by either initiating starting bids, outbidding someone else or making a direct purchase of an item through the Buy Now option to gaurentee your win.

Bidders will receive instant notifications, including outbid notifications which make it so simple to bid again and take back the lead! When the auction ends, winning bidders will be immediately notified with an automatically generated invoice which can be paid securely online.

Because our event is going virtual this year, there will be no in-person component of the auction as there has been in years past. For 2020, the entire auction will remain online until bidding ends on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at 7pm.

We will continually be adding new items as they become available so check back regularly. Also, it’s never too late to support the CVCDA Children’s Telethon through an in-kind contribution. Please contact robyn@cvcda.ca for details.
