Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community hosts the 19th annual Gingerbread Village and Teddy Bear Baskets online auction.
While youngsters may be counting the sleeps until Santa arrives, for many the holiday season kicks off with Crown Isle Resort’s Christmas celebrations. This year things will look a little different, with the cancellation of the Holiday Resort Walk. But a “must” for your holiday calendar is the 19th annual Gingerbread Village & Teddy Bear Baskets Silent Auction from Dec. 1-18.
Residents and businesses put their creativity to the test crafting gingerbread houses and displays, or feature a special teddy bear in a beautifully arranged gift basket. This year all creations will be listed in an online auction – watch for the virtual portal on Crown Isle’s website to bid and track your items from the comfort of your own home.
Due to COVID restrictions, the silent auction will not be set up for bidding in person or school tours this year. If you don’t find something perfect for you in the online auction but would still like to help Crown Isle give back, they will also be accepting donations at crownisle.com Proceeds from the auction and donations will go to local charities, continuing Crown Isle’s longstanding relationships with the Dawn to Dawn Action on Homelessness Society and the Comox Valley Transition Society. Money raised will support their vital work in the Comox Valley community.
There is still time for you to participate in this worthy charity fundraiser – email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up to build a creation for the auction. Crown Isle will be entering and featuring items as they come in, on social media as well as through the auction portal.
