ASTTBC’s Silent Auction Fundraiser
Step Up for Students & Support our Silent Auction!
The ASTTBC Technology Awards & Recognition Celebration will be held at the Pan Pacific Hotel on Saturday, November 18, 2017. With more than 300 attendees from all over the province, ASTTBC’s premier event acknowledges leaders in the Science and Technology community. The ASTTBC Foundation SILENT AUCTION is a popular part of the Annual Gala and raises vital funds for the ASTTBC Foundation.
Donating an AUCTION ITEM provides an opportunity to support the ASTTBC Foundation and profile your organization through an attractive poster displayed beside your item and recognition on event signage.
The ASTTBC Foundation supports bursaries and awards for post-secondary technology students and helps to fund science and technology education and awareness across BC. The ASTTBC Foundation provides more than $50,000 in support of technology learning each and every year.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors since the Foundation was established in 1990, the ASTTBC Foundation has an Endowed Fund of $600,000. This Fund will help the youth of today to become the techs of tomorrow, for generations to come.
YOUR SUPPORT BY WAY OF A DONATION of a gift certificate, product or service will help us meet our Silent Auction fundraising goal of $10,000. We are open to discussing your ideas for an auction item. Below are examples of popular past donation items…
- Trip vouchers
- Dinners for 2 or 4
- A voucher for an activity, such as an air balloon ride or wine tasting experience
- Tickets to a music event or a play
- Tickets to a hockey game or any sporting event
- Artwork, jewelry and products, such as a themed gift basket or spa gift certificate.
Your generous support of our Silent Auction has a real impact on what our Foundation can accomplish and creates fun and excitement at our Technology Awards & Recognition Celebration. We’re grateful for your participation and pleased to arrange for your item to be picked up at your convenience.
