Important Update: Bachelor Auction
Published Wednesday, April 15, 2020
As you know, times have changed. With in-person events no longer possible at this time, the auction is being reimagined.
I'm excited to announce The Co-Operators Bachelors for Hope ONLINE Charity Auction – an online auction with amazing "date packages" in support of exceptional, local breast cancer care!
The Auction is live May 21st at 9AM until May 31st at 10PM.
What happens to your original ticket?
Now that the event will be online, the bidding will be open to everyone. No tickets necessary.
If you bought tickets for yourself or a group you can:
- Donate the price of your ticket(s) to the Northern Cancer Fund for Breast Cancer (thank you!) and receive a charitable tax receipt for the full value of your ticket(s).
- Receive a refund of your ticket(s).
Please email me with which option you choose, and I will take care of the rest.
While the event is changing, the cause remains the same.
Many of us are struggling with this 'new reality' due to the COVID-19 pandemic; with instructions to remain at home, away from our families and friends.
For patients with breast cancer, the reality of this pandemic has added an even greater and unimaginable layer of stress to an already difficult time. The people that surround patients as they're going through chemo or radiation have been suddenly cut off. While virtual visits can raise spirits, we all know they're not the same as hugging someone in person or the sense of relief that comes with a pre-cooked meal delivered with love.
Now, more than ever, our Cancer Centre and the breast cancer patients who are treated here, need your help. Cancer doesn't stop in the face of a pandemic and neither will we. Our healthcare professionals are some of the most caring people you will ever meet and they continue to provide exceptional cancer care, giving hope in this bleak time.
Your donation and support of The Co-Operators Bachelors for Hope Online Charity Auction will ensure breast cancer patients have access to the best treatment possible, close to home. We know you've always highly valued close-to-home treatment. Today's reality cements this value more than ever.
Please – give breast cancer patients hope – today, during this pandemic, and everyday thereafter.
Thank you for your generosity and kindness in this uncertain time.
We hope to see you (virtually) at the Online Auction!
Together, for better breast cancer care.
