In less than three weeks (from April 29 to May5) the YMCA Academy will be hosting 12 Youth Exchange Canada guests from Ouje-Bougoumou, Quebec. Last Thursday, to fund our hosting activities, we held a silent auction. The ten and a half hour silent auction showcased a plethora of items all donated by our students’ families, staff, and the YMCA community at large. From printers, jackets, jewellery, to vases, kitchen appliances and even a waffle maker, our auction had it all.
After bids, counter bids, and last minute buys the day long auction was able to raise $1,936 for our hosting activities.
We are grateful to all those who donated, gave their time, and supported our endeavor. Thank you!
