Online Auction

June 16, 2017 @ 9:00 am - June 18, 2017 @ 9:00 pm

We’re excited to host our very first Online Auction with over 100 fabulous items to bid on.

Find our auction site at: http://www.32auctions.com/sohia17

This fundraiser is aimed at raising money to purchase solar panels for the school in Jambiani, Zanzibar to provide a stable source of energy.

We are also trying to purchase solar cookers to make cooking breakfast for over 600 pre-school and primary aged students easier for the women who prepare the breakfast.  The women are currently cooking over wood fires which is a fairly laborious task having to search for wood and build a fire.  There are also the health effects of cooking over an open fire daily so the women have asked us for help to provide them with healthier cooking options and solar cookers is the perfect solution.

On our auction site you’ll find:

  • Restaurant Certificates such as: Milestones, Cafe Brio, Pagliacci’s, Bin 4, Boston Pizza, The Village and Floyds
  • Round of Golf at Arbutus Ridge
  • Obedience classes for your dog
  • a Kindle
  • A 32″ TV
  • One night stay out at the Prestige Resort in Sooke and dinner
  • Tea and Chocolate pairing workshop at Silk Road
  • Whale watching
  • BC Ferry Gift Certificate for vehicle and passengers
  • Escape Room experience
  • Birthday party at Kenzen Karate or Dansko Dance Studio or with Games2U

This is just to name a few! Need to buy groceries at Thrifty’s? Lifestyle Markets? Get gas at Esso? Need an oil change? Need some coffee at home? Going to the movies? Need some acrylic nails, a pedicure, or eyelash extensions? We’ve got gift vouchers for it all! Do your shopping with us and it’s a win/win for us both.

Remember, bidding starts at 9am Friday June 16th and closes 9pm on Sunday June 18th
