Annual art auction to be held for Child Care Services

Assiniboia Family and Child Care Services will host their annual art auction/ art celebration in partnership with Shurniak Gallery on Sunday, October 28  at 1:30 p.m.
The Assiniboia Family and Child Care Services invites local residents to the event. The event is open to the general public, as their presence will create an added interest outside of their families and will develop new connections for the children and their families.
Should businesses or organizations want to contribute at a different level, they accept donations for the silent auction as well as reserved bids on art pieces displayed throughout the week of Tuesday to Sunday, October 23 to 28. This event raises approximately $3,000 that is applied toward special program needs. It assists the Assiniboia Family and Child Care Services in keeping fees down for families as well. This event has raised the profile of quality childcare in the community, which continues to be an important factor for the success of children in working families. Parents with quality care report to be better employees, directly benefitting employers.
Assiniboia Family and Child Care Services has also donated pieces of art to the Festival of Trees and Firemen’s Ball, raising $350 per piece on average. The Assiniboia Family and Child Care Services place a lot of educational value in the art process. Being a charitable organization, they can issue tax receipts.
The Assiniboia Family and Child Care Services is currently searching for an auctioneer (or someone with interest or skills in this area). Please call the Assiniboia Family and Child Care Services to volunteer. For more information, feel free to call the director, Michele Vallieres. She’ll be happy to answer any questions.
