    • With 23 exclusive boutiques in the Bloor-Yorkville neighborhood hosting gourmet dinners, this annual fund-raiser for Canfar is the most prestigious benefit in the city. The 2007 event, which attracted 848 people, was marred by a bomb threat outside the Royal Ontario Museum, which led to the last-minute cancellation of the venue’s after-party. (Canfar staged an online auction in early December in an effort to raise additional funds.) The 2008 event will be held at the ROM on November 26.

    • The Silent Auction & How it works:
    • The cost of item is marked on the bid sheet as the STARTING BID
    • Attendees bid the item up in increments of $5.00 to $10.00 until the Final Bid is determined at the close of the sale.
    • After credit card charges (IF APPLICABLE), and taxes (UNLESS THE CHARITY COLLECTS THE MONEY), the difference between the Final Bid and the cost goes directly to your cause.
    • There can be variations to the program, determined by unique cases and opportunities, but these details can all be discussed prior to the event.
    • Key Elements of the Silent Auction:
    •   Attendance: the more attendees the greater the competitive spirit and return;
    • Community Support: Members of the community help drive attendance and success;
    • Location: an accessible location, made comfortable to the bidder that has items fully displayed to the attendees is important for success.
    • Variety: a wide range of unique and beautiful items to appeal to all tastes. This diversity promotes greater interest and greater potential bidding.
  • 10. Raffle Prizes, Corporate Events & Consignment
    • We look after the attendees by having knowledgeable staff on hand to answer questions and assist wherever possible. Raffle Prizes: at many silent or live auctions a raffle Prize is offered, where tickets are purchased and everyone has a chance to win the item. This encourages participation even from those who may not bid through the normal process.
    • Corporate Events: the silent auction works extremely well at corporate events, providing a unique venue that encourages participation from attendees. It allows the corporation to support their favorite charity and gives your Team a spirit building event, while also providing the opportunity for people to bid on unique items.
    • Consignment: 
    • Your risk is ZERO • Your cost is ZERO
    • All Young Minds Marketing products upon completion of the auction can be returned, this creates zero risk for you, and proceeds from other items sold, will never be diminished by paying for an unsold item!!
