CVCF Home Sweet Home Online Auction Opens October 3

In conjunction with our Home Sweet Home Gala, the Comox Valley Community Foundation is pleased to present its community wide, virtual auction. This online auction will get underway on Saturday, October 3 and remain open for bids until the following Saturday, October 10.

“Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to re-imagine the annual Gala and all the pieces that accompany it,” said Matt Beckett, CVCF’s President. “A silent auction has long been a part of the Gala, and this year we decided to open it up to the general public for their participation as well.”

“Our Comox Valley business community has once again been incredibly generous and we invite you to view the great selection of items available,” added Beckett. “Both the Gala and online auction raise much needed funds for the Foundation to continue our important work in the community.”

To view the auction items and to register to bid, please visit www.auctria.com/auction/HomeSweetHomeGala or the CVCF website www.cvcfoundation.org to access a link. The auction is open to residents of the Comox Valley only.

Since April 2020, CVCF has supported emergency pandemic response through grants to not for profit organizations totaling $354,845, with an additional $51,170 in emergency relief to be distributed in the coming months to ensure everyone in our beautiful Valley has what they need to live safe and healthy lives during these challenging times. In addition, CVCF is continuing with its Community Enrichment Grants, which will be awarded in January 2021. All told, CVCF will be distributing over $1 million to local charities and not for profits this fiscal year.

Founded in 1996, the Comox Valley Community Foundation is an independent charity registered with Canada Revenue Agency, dedicated to enriching life in the Comox Valley forever. With the support of local families, businesses and organizations who have created endowed funds, the CVCF has awarded more than $3.2 million to over 170 local non-profits and 230 students.
