Ground Hog Dinner & Auction

The organizing committee & Board of Directors are thrilled to announce the huge success of the first ever Ground Hog Day Dinner & Auction: not only did we raise $13,000 – everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Great food, lots of laughs, and lots of great auction items. Our sponsors for the evening we also thank, RBC Rockwood for a generous donation & 3  volunteers to wash dishes, Foodland, Rockwood for giving us groceries at cost and an additional $100 off; Sleemans for a donation of 10 cases of beer; Tom & Ruth Bowes of TrilliumWest Real Estate for donating the stickers, printing, and all silent auction set-up materials, and of course our long list of donors listed in the attached document.

Some of the highlights of the evening were bids on items packaged by villagers offering a specialized service:

  • 10-year old boys offering to shovel your driveway brought in $350;
  • Tea for 4 with local historian sold for $350
  • Dinner & movie night for 4 at local historic farm fetched $500
  • Shore up lunch along the Eramosa sold for $275
  • Freshly baked Hand Picked; Hand Made; Northern Ontario Wild Blueberry Pie sold for $220
  • Evan and Jordan Little will provide 2 hours of music for a dinner party $400

Incredibly generous bids! See below for our final numbers.

​We send special thanks to all our donors, volunteers, organizers and participants.  Next auction: Saturday February 1, 2020!  Your organizing committee members, Barb Parker, Ruth Bowes, Linda Sword & Christie Zuk
