Every year dozens of items are donated by businesses and people who understand the need to raise money to help children attend camp!

During the evening of the event items are displayed and individuals at the event can bid on each. Near the end of the evening, the highest bidder gets to take the item home! It's a WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN: we get to do something for camp, some great "bidding wars" provide entertainment, the successful bidder gets to take home some great swag, and the donator gets to make it all happen!

You can help us out by donating an item that others will bid on! Items that can be independently assessed (as part of your donation) may be eligible for a tax receipt. Please contact Sam Nelson-Kennedy at samantha.nelson-kennedy@calgary.ymca.ca if you have an item to donate.
