Burlington Art Centre Charity Auction

In 2013 the Burlington Art Centre (BAC) celebrates 35 remarkable years of enriching lives and inspiring imaginations. This milestone will be marked in many ways during the year, with the Art Auction leading the way. The BAC Foundation’s Auction is one of the most prestigious charitable art auctions in the region. Their theme resounds – celebrating their 35th anniversary, auctioning 35 art pieces on and charging a $35 admission fee.

These 35 pieces of original artwork are available during their online charity auction from January 17 through Feb 7. The silent auction will be held at the Burlington Art Centre on Feb 7 though Feb 8 with each piece on display. The live auction will be held at the Burlington Art Centre. Participants are welcome to bid in one auction or all three!

The exquisite nature of each painting, sculpture and photograph are captured on the BAC Foundation Auction website and will certainly make this multifaceted event a thrill to participate in. Their devoted committee members have added beautiful images for each auction item, and managed donor communications and secure online payments with their fundraising website. An unlimited number of online bidders can participate in their auction with each being notified by email when they’ve been outbid.

As a non-profit organization the BAC relies on sponsorships, donations and fundraising to continue its programs. It relies on dedicated BAC members who volunteer their time to work in the BAC, and for its events throughout the year and on corporate partners which generously provide financial support. The funds raised by their charity auction will support artists of all levels. Talented instructors and fully equipped studios nurture not only guild members, but also art students of all ages from the community through studio courses and hands on programs for schools and businesses.

Implementing charity auction software makes organizing an online or silent auction event easy and affordable. DoJiggy charity auction software can help fundraising event planners organize and manage the details associated with hosting a successful fundraising auction event.
