This year the Pioneer is pleased to assist the Summit Youth Centre to help raise funds that benefit youth in our community. A silent auction will be held from December 11th through 14th with 100% of the proceeds going to support the programming that Summit Youth provides. Donors, which can be businesses, organizations or families, are asked to create either a gingerbread house or a teddy bear basket (a teddy bear in a basket surrounded by treats and treasures) that will then be dropped off at our silent auction location on Friday December 1st or Monday December 4th, at the Summit Youth Centre.

All donated items will then be photographed and featured in the December 7th edition in advance of the silent auction. Shoppers can peruse the pages of the Pioneer in advance of the auction to pick out the perfect addition to this year’s Christmas celebrations.

The silent auction ends on Thursday December 14th at 6 p.m. e winning bidders will be contacted and the items must be picked up immediately after the auction ends or on Friday December 15th. Please bring cash or a cheque made out to the Summit Youth Centre in the amount of the winning bid. An eye-catching thank you ad will run in our December 21st edition that will include logos from donors and acknowledgements for donor families. e most creative gingerbread house and teddy bear basket, as chosen by our editor, will also be featured in the thank you ad.

As space is limited, only 30 donations can be accepted so please register today at ads@columbiavalleypioneer.com. Please indicate whether a gingerbread house or a teddy bear basket will be donated.
