The Champlain Park Holiday Charity Auction has now closed and we’re happy to announce that it has raised over $1700 for the Parkdale Food Centre!!! See the link at http://www.32auctions.com/champlainpark
The neighbourhood got completely behind it with great donations of unique items and services, lots of heated bidding and over 3000 website visits!
A big thank you to all who donated items and to all bidders, your generosity during these holiday times is much appreciated. Please see below a message from the Executive Director of the Parkdale Food Centre:
“Thank you so much…This donation will go a long way in helping us to purchase ingredients for the hundreds of nutritious meals we make every week, to share with neighbours in need.”
And a big thank you to the Champlain Park Community Association for helping make this happen!
Just a reminder that the house decoration contest is still on, running until the 26th.
Just a reminder that the Holiday Charity Auction ends at 5pm on December 15th.
The Champlain Park Holiday Charity Auction is up and running!
We have received many wonderful donations – ranging from unique handmade items to baked goods and great services including: hand-made quilts and clothing, art, books, gift packages and more! A big thank you to all those who have donated their time and items!
Come see for yourself, the unique, one-of-a-kind items that would be great to finish off your holiday shopping list for your loved ones or as something special just for you.
All proceeds go to our local food bank, the Parkdale Food Centre, to help those in need in these difficult times.
To put in a bid, you have until Dec 15 (5pm) to:
- go to the website: www.32auctions.com/champlainpark
- register your email so we know how to reach you if you have a winning bid
- click on “View all items”, and choose the item of interest, then click on “Place my bid”
- if you have the highest bid on an item on Dec 15, then you donate that amount to the Parkdale Food Centre (i.e. at parkdalefoodcentre.ca) and email the receipt to email@example.com
- We’ll then arrange for a contactless drop-off or pick-up or delivery of the service
Visit the site, bid for charity and share the info with your neighbours and friends so they bid too.

Due to the pandemic, we’re having a holiday charity auction, and an upcoming best decorated house contest. Unfortunately the sleigh ride and winter carnival had to be cancelled, but we still have hopes for the rink.
Donate and/or bid on items to raise $$ for the Parkdale Food Bank
Makes a great Holiday gift!
