Silent Auction HUGE Success with Estimated $9,000 Profit!

The prizes have now been drawn. Heather Coey won the highly sought after hand made PCS quilt. In the draw of all the families who sold more than 5 tickets or brought in more than 5 items for the Silent Auction, Saad Masri won a trip for two on Helijet Airways. Again thank you to everyone for your efforts. Your hard work continues to allow us to not have ANY mandatory fundraising commitments!

Over 100 people attended the 1st Annual PCS Dinner and Silent Auction. The evening was a very casual event everywhere except at the bidding tables.

With 120+ items up for bidding, there were numerous reports of people blocking bid sheets with there bodies attempting to prevent someone from out bidding their final offer. Although many people wanted to get the best deals they could, everyone recognized that this was a charity event.

With only the Wayne Gretzky signed, Phoenix Coyotes Jersey, not having reached its reserve bid the Silent Auction itself raised over $7,500. This item will be shortly listed on EBay so that the Phoenix fans may also have the opportunity to support swimming in Victoria. Raffle tickets and profits from the dinner and bar sales have not been fully counted, but with an estimated sale value of the jersey it appears total profits will surpass the $9, 000 mark!

PSCPA wishes to again thank the Auction Committee for their work putting together all the aspects of this event, all the donators who provided the unbelievable number and assortment of items for sale, and to all the attendees who came out in support of the club and who were extremely willing to continue bidding until the very last moments
