A combination silent auction, treasure hunt, raffle, bake sale and garage sale raised close to $2,000 for the Qualicum Beach Seniors’ Centre on Saturday, March 24.
The Qualicum Beach Seniors’ Centre’s president, Judy Southern, said she was very pleased with the results of the sale, which both raised money for the centre and provided an opportunity for members to sell used items and other goods by renting a table for $10.
The fundraising portion of the event was for the purchase and/or upgrade of the centre’s computer system, said Southern.
“A huge amount of thanks goes to local merchants in Qualicum Beach as well as our own members, mainly our co-ordinator, for donations to our fundraising project,” she said.
Items for sale inlcuded jewelry, muffins, knitted items, clothing and home-made stuffed animals.
