Auction at the Bay was a SUCCESS!

The auction results are IN and they are better than we could have imagined!  Bidding was fast and furious in the final minutes on Sunday as the auction came to a close.  In total, there were almost 720 bids ending with 80 successful bidders.  Congratulations to EVERYONE!  But the best number of all???  $12,000 will be donated to the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society’s Building Together project.

We offered an additional bidding incentive – any new or renewed HBCA membership received during the auction, with a successful/winning bid, was entered into a draw for free admission to our 2022 events.  And the winner is…Alistair Higson.  It was a close race as another individual tried to outbid him but he persevered and is now the proud owner of some spectacular vintage wine AND a free pass to our 2022 events!

Whether or not you were a successful bidder, please consider donating to the project directly.  You can help make the Building Together dream a reality!

The auction was possible because of the generous donations from coastal businesses and individuals.  Thank them next time you buy their products or use their services.

Many thanks to Karyn Henwood and her team of volunteers for their dedication to this fundraising campaign – this IS what community is all about – coming together for a worthy cause.
