Looking for donations for the silent auction at the 2012 COCs

One of the main fundraisers for the COF’s High Performance Program is the silent auction that is held in conjunction with the banquet at the Canadian Orienteering Championships in Alberta. Members of the high performance program will be donating items, but we greatly appreciate donations from the Canadian orienteering community. Here are a few ideas:

  • Could your club donate an entry to an upcoming event?
  • Are you a crafter – can you donate something like a pair of home-made mittens or a hat? pottery? weaving? sculpture? jewellery?
  • Are you a foodie – can you donate a jar of home-made jam, a batch of cookies, some home-made granola
  • Do you have a  cabin that you could donate a gift certificate for a weekend or a week’s stay at?
  • Do you live in a tourist destination and could offer B&B for a weekend or longer? (especially if it was in conjunction with future orienteering events)
  • Are you an artist – do you have a sketch of an orienteering scene, or a great photograph that you could put in a frame?
  • Could you ask your local running/sport store to donate an item?
  • Do you have a new unused item kicking around your house that you would love to get rid of – it might just be someone else’s treasure!
  • other ideas? Think about what you would like to bid on.

If you have an item to donate, you can bring it with you to Alberta or send it along with someone who is attending (Here’s the list of attendees). Or contact Charlotte MacNaughton to make other arrangements. Or if you have any questions.

Ideally, please give your silent auction item to Charlotte MacNaughton or any member of the High Performance Program prior to Sat Aug 18 to help us with smoothly setting up the auction. But you can also bring your item to the auction if you haven’t had a chance to submit it earlier. You can also leave it at the registration desk when you pick up your event package.

Your support is much appreciated… And if you are coming to the COCs, please bid generously! Don’t forget your wallet and/or your cheque book. Cash or cheque is the preferred payment method. But we can sort out other options if you don’t have enough cash or a cheque with you.

Those of you who have been to one before know that the Silent Auction is a lot of fun, often with frantic bidding as time runs out. You never know what the highly sought after items will be. And if you can’t make it to Alberta this year, there is always the option of allowing a trusted friend to bid for you! Just give a budget limit and an idea of what you want.

About the High Performance Program

The High Performance Program (HPP) is a support system for athletes who show potential to represent Canada at Junior World Championships and World Championships. The HPP includes athletes, but also the support system of volunteers and coaches as we try to encourage a broader community around our top athletes. HPP projects and initiatives include:

  • The Rising Stars Award
  • Fundraising events such as this Silent Auction and the upcoming HPP fundraiser event in Edmonton
  • Providing training opportunities such as the spring training camps in Hamilton and Canmore
  • Raising the profile of elite orienteering through, for example, implementing the red group at major competitions, introducing the Canada Cup Elite Series, and maintaining a blog of HPP activities
