Time is Running Out

Fact: According to a recent poll within 72 hours, 93% of the people who bid in the Newmont/Goldcorp Special Olympics auction woke up even more good looking and intelligent. Some winning bidders even went from a “3” to a “10”.  Provincial law prevents us from guaranteeing that but we like your chances.

This is just a friendly reminder that there’s just hours left to get instant entry into everyone’s good books. (The auction closes at 7:30 Thursday evening.)

Are You Up For A Challenge?

See if you can outbid me.

Of course, the big reason is to help Special O provide life-changing opportunities and an essential bridge to the community at large for over 5,200 children, teenagers and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Every dollar raised in the auction enables another of our special needs individual to play a sport, maybe take a trip to a provincial championship or get some essential medical attention through Special O’s Healthy Athlete screening program. Your bid or donation will help another four year old join the renowned Active Start program in order to improve their motor skills.

If you’re not the winning bidder you can still go to the site and donate.

The action online auction runs through Thursday evening, June 20th, when the auction closes at approximately 7:30. And then winners will be notified.

Your help is important and appreciated.
