All funds raised from the auction support the WCF core programs, including infrastructure grants for community projects, matching grants and student bursaries. Don’t hesitate to share the bid pages on social media. The online auction is open across the country.
“Your charitable donations, large or small, are what provide us the opportunity to strengthen communities across much of Canada,” Laurette Laplante, director with the WCF, said.
“Each time we give back, we know we had the support of Canadians. For that we thank them.”
At Western, we wish participants good luck in the auction, which is now live and continues until 8 p.m. MST on Oct. 31. Happy bidding!
