The Coquitlam Arts Hub is hosting its fundraiser from October 22 to November 6, hoping to raise $ 5,000 to help families in need secure places in arts programs.

A total of 37 packages are on the block; However, if attendees wish to purchase the giveaway and bypass the auction, they can also purchase it directly.

“That way they won’t be outbid and they will get the item they want,” said Susan Pereira, Marketing Assistant at the Brunette Avenue site.

The welfare of the arts is the theme of the fifth annual auction, Pereira said, and is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic: three original pieces by visual artists – Jeff Wilson, Laura Clark and Tania Deisinger – are up for grabs, as are self-care experiences.

Innovative Fitness offers two premium personal training packages while Vancouver Water Adventures offers a two-hour kayaking session for four.

There are meeting ideas (dinner and museum visits) and a chartered salmon fishing trip with a two-night stay at the Fairmont Hotel in Vancouver.

For those who don’t want to travel, there are spa and restaurant packages, as well as Center Coquitlam gift cards and an autographed photo of Bo Hovart of the Canucks.

Still, if there is nothing interesting or available, Joan McCauley, general manager of Place des Arts, said cash donations are always welcome.

The proceeds from the auction pay for arts education programs for residents who have been referred by the City of Coquitlam (through its Financial aid for recreation program), as well as SHARE, SUCCESS and Big Sisters, McCauley said.

“We want to prepare for success,” said Vishakha Uppoor, development coordinator at Place des Arts. “We would like cash donations as the tourism and restaurant industries have been hit very hard and are not able to give as much.”

Yet Christmas is only a few weeks away, and the online auction is a good way to find gifts and / or contribute to a good cause, she said.

“You can do your shopping from the comfort of your home.”
