The Silent Auction is a popular and important part of the annual Gala. Families and students are asked to help in the following ways:
- Provide a item for the Silent Auction. Popular items from past Galas have been hand crafted items such as blankets and woodwork pieces, original art work, tickets to concerts or sporting events, gift cards, vouchers for a stay at a time share, wine baskets, cookware, luggage pieces, etc, but any new item is gratefully accepted. Corporate donations are also welcome; letters requesting a donation from an employer is found here: MLK Corporate Letter 2019
- For students, canvass your local businesses for Silent Auction donations.
Starting in mid-February, students will be asked to form groups of 4 to 6 and pick an area in southwest Calgary to canvass. Maps, instructions, and letters from Mr. Bell and Mr. Brown will be provided to each student group to help them with this task.
