2017 Expert Auction Another Great Success!

As parties go, this is a good bet. You've got a great venue, the Arts Barn; you've got lively entertainment, local people on the auction block; and you've got the excitement of winning your bid and coming home with something special, even unique. All for a worthy cause. This year's Bobcaygeon Expert Auction did not disappoint.

Final calculations are almost complete for this dock building fundraiser, and it looks like another stellar year!


Thank you to all the people who made this happen.

Thank you to all who attended. Without you, it wouldn't work of course. You gave back to our community – and it sure looked like you were having fun!


Thank you to all the good sports who ruled the stage while “the crowd went wild”. Thank you to the businesses who donated gifts and services for the silent auctions.


Thank you to our super Auctioneer Jason McIntosh, you made us dig deep and feel great about it. Thank you to the Westerby Entertainment DJ, you kept it lively. Thank you to Danielle Thompson, Master of Ceremonies, you made sure we had fun and knew what we were bidding on. Thank you to the Lakeview Arts Barn, a wonderful party venue as always. And thank you to J & K DeVitt transport.

Thank you to the folks who sold tickets at Kawartha Coffee, My Favourite Things, Darling Insurance and LiveWell.


Thank you to Carly Poole, who masterminded the event and kept everyone on an even keel. And to soon-to-be-new-dad Brian Peterkin who stepped in this year like a pro. (We loved you doing yoga 'impressions'.)

Last but not least, thank you to the volunteers who came to meetings and organized everything. Thank you for hanging posters, for canvassing businesses for donations, for selling tickets, for decorating the Arts Barn, for taking the photos, for running the games, for manning the ticket and cash-out table, for setting up the silent auction tables. For all of this, and for the many laughs shared all along the way!
