Auction start delayed to Saturday, November 23

As you are aware, GKHAT is preparing for our annual online fundraising auction. The auction is our primary fundraising opportunity for the club. After this, there are no bottle drives, no tickets to sell, no baked goods to sell…. this is it. Our board members have or will be applying for additional outside funding, which is always hit and miss, and we do receive donations from some of our generous club sponsors. However, as a club effort, as I said, this is it.

The reason we need to raise funds is simple, to supports our club. GKHAT is the largest winter youth sports program in the Golden area, and we are the fifth largest alpine ski club in British Columbia. Our registration fees just cover our coach wages, WCB, liability insurance, and BC Alpine fees. The money we raise from the auction goes to keeping our kids warm in the yurt, our kids safe on the hill, and supports our low-income and special needs programs, as well as professional development for coaches.

Unfortunately, we aren’t ready to launch the auction. We are deferring the start of the auction to Saturday, November 23. So far, only a little over half of our families have acquired items or have donated money for the auction. Currently, we only have just over 90 items in the auction. In the past, we have had up 196 items and have raised over $18,000. To the families and businesses that have donated auction items or money in lieu of, I want to thank you – your contribution is much appreciated.

To ensure we reach a target of at least $15,000 we require more items for the auction. I along with our fundraising director Sarah Short and Tracy Van Zalingen, have been actively canvassing local business for more items…. our favourite restaurants, our favourite clothing stores, where we buy our tires, where we buy a coffee, our employers, you name it – we are asking for a donation for the auction. Please join us for over the next week to get the number of auction items up, so we do not need to undertake another fundraising event this year. We will be extending our intake of auction items to November 22.
