37th Reach Annual Celebrity Auction


Join us on November 1st at the St. Elias Centre for the 37th Reach Annual Celebrity Auction. Stay tuned for details or visit the Reach Annual Auction website for more information!

The Reach Annual Celebrity Auction is a high-profile event featuring a cocktail reception, dinner, music and both a live & silent auction. Local and national businesses, artists, Embassies, High Commissions and others contribute items to be auctioned with proceeds going to support Reach’s effort to support equal access to justice for persons with disabilities and educational programming. Last year, net proceeds from the event exceeded $75,000 and auction items included art donated by Leonard Cohen, a Yukon Getaway Package, and a copy of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms signed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Emcees Lawrence Greenspon & James Foord will be joined by guest auctioneer Jock Climie, TSN Analyst and former CFL Player.

The annual auction is run by a highly dedicated volunteer committee who work year-round to bring the most exciting auction items to the event. The auction relies heavily on in-kind support from a number of generous local businesses not only to contribute the auction items, but also to provide decor, appetizers, wine, flower arrangements, AV and meals for the dedicated volunteers.
