    Item Description:

    If you have something you or someone else would consider a treasure, and you’re willing to part with it, we would gratefully add it to our catalogue for the silent or live auction. Here’s a small sample of the range of items and experiences we’ve received in the past: antique furniture, crystal, silver, art work, textiles, day cruises, lessons, spa treatments, china, a condo in Maui for a week, and so much more.

    ArtSpring. For those who know and love it, there’s no need for introductions or reminders of its value. For the uninitiated, the arts and culture soul of Salt Spring Island was officially opened by Robert Bateman in April 1999 and has been provoking creativity and inspiration ever since. The beautiful building boasts a theatre and exhibition rooms that allow everyone from school children to budding and accomplished artists to meet, develop, and showcase their work. This facility hosts roughly 300 events from far and wide each year and approximately 75% of those are community created and presented. You won’t see higher calibre entertainment at a more affordable price anywhere.

    This fine cultural hub needs you. Let’s break it down: ticket sales comprise less than 40% of the revenue required to operate the theatre. Fundraisers make up the difference to help maintain and operate the building, and the annual Treasure Fair is hugely important. Businesses and individuals donate an exciting array of items, and experiences then it’s all up for bidding during the 3-day event in July.

    If you’re keen to contribute to this worthy cause, please be in touch. Please call Diana at 250-537-2125 to find out how to donate. Treasure Fair happens July 19, 20, and 21.
