Auction of Wanted Items to Support Shuswap Trail Initiatives – Sicamous Eagle Valley News

With large gatherings pending, the Shuswap Trail Alliance is looking to make some noise for local trails through a silent auction.

Before the pandemic, the annual Shuswap Trail Alliance (STA) trail party was the star of February in Salmon Arm. It has served as a key fundraiser for STA’s trail building and development initiatives throughout the region.

Due to current health restrictions, the STA is once again holding its fundraiser online. This is a silent auction, taking place from February 4 to 20, 2022, and will be held at the Trellis site.

STA Executive Director Jen Bellhouse invites Shuswap businesses to donate auction items and/or money to the cause, and if they do, their name and logo will be featured on the website. and Trail Alliance’s newly updated social media platforms.

In addition to the silent auction, Trail Alliance will be selling limited edition toques. They will be on the same site as the other auction items as “buy now” items, and when they’re gone, they’ll be gone.

“We recognize that it’s been an interesting two years…we totally understand if people aren’t in a position to donate,” Bellhouse said. “But we are extremely grateful to them if they can.”

Any person or business wishing to donate an item to auction can contact STA volunteer Sylva McMahan by email at [email protected] The deadline for auction items is January 29.

More information about the 2022 fundraiser will be posted on the Shuswap Trail Alliance Facebook page and website as it becomes available.
