Qualicum Refugee Sponsorship Group open house

There will also be a silent art auction with all proceeds going to help the refugee family

The Qualicum Refugee Sponsorship Group will be holding its open house and silent art auction at the refugee house this Saturday.

The house (181 Sunningdale Rd. West, Qualicum Beach) will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

QRSG chair Carol Doering said the group wanted to give everyone in the community a chance to come and see the refugee house before the family arrives.

People can come and see all the work that’s been done to get the house ready in time. Doering said some people will be able to see the furniture they donated.

Along with the open house will be a silent art auction with pieces donated by local artists. Doering said the pieces range from paintings, fibre art, carvings and jewelry.

Some of the silent art auction pieces have been on display in the window of Bucknucks Books (701 Primrose St., Qualicum Beach).

Doering said this is going to be the key fundraiser for raising money for the refugee family.
