Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Enriching Lives Gala & Auction have been cancelled. Because it was a special anniversary year, we will be celebrating in person next year to mark this occasion.
THANK YOU for supporting Special Olympics PEI services and programs through your bidding at our past Enriching Lives Gala Auctions - this year we still need your support to continue providing quality programs to our membership. You Can Help by making a Donation today!
This year marks the 30th Anniversary of our Enriching Lives Gala & Auction, taking place on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2021 at the Delta Prince Edward by Marriott; At our Enriching Lives Gala we pride ourselves on offering exciting experiences for our guests. The event includes both a silent & live auction, so the possibilities are limitless
ENRICHING LIVES AUCTION
The Enriching Lives Gala includes both a Silent & Live Auction. These auctions are essential to the success of the event, accounting for over 38% of the total amount raised. Throughout the evening over 550 supporters, including our celebrity guests, will have the chance to bid on an exciting lineup of donated auction items.
Once again in 2021 we will be hosting our Enriching Lives Auction online, beginning two weeks before the Gala on our Enriching Lives Auction website and we suggest you browse the items and register prior to the event.
Donating an item to the Auction
The success of the auction is a direct result of the amazing support we continue to receive from businesses and the community by way of a wonderful line-up of auction items. All monies raised through the auction have a direct impact on the programs we offer across PEI.
We would love to add your item to our auction line-up early this year to create some excitement through our digital channels, which would translate into bidding and revenue generation, at our signature fundraising event. The opportunities for items to donate are endless with the silent, luxury items and live auction options.
Donations are now being accepted for both the Silent and Live Auctions.
