Silent Auction 2017


15th Annual McKnight Silent Auction

Saturday, November 25, 2017

 Hosted by Thorncliffe Greenview Community Association


Message from our Silent Auction Coordinator:

Happy September, everyone and welcome back to hockey season.

The 15th Annual McKnight Silent Auction is taking place on November 25th, 2017 at the Thorncliffe Greenview Community Hall.

The Silent Auction is a major fundraiser for McKnight Hockey teams. A great way to reconnect with old 'teammates' over a beverage, meet new 'teammates', a bite to eat and support other teams in our association.

How it works:

  • Each participating team purchases a table for $100 to display the items collected by their team. This fee pays for printing costs, entertainment, decorations etc. Table location is selected by random draw on auction day. You would be amazed at what people bring in!

 

  • Admission tickets are sold by each participating team. These are priced to cover the food, venue and staffing costs, volunteer appreciation gifts and door prizes. Last year we gave 11 door prizes out to 11 different lucky winners!

 

  • The items go through the bidding process, are paid for, and within two weeks after totals are complete and transactions are cleared, the teams receive their money via cheque.

 

  • Last year 21 teams participated.  The highest grossing team made just over $4000 and the lowest was just below $1000.

 

  • Last year, 96% of the total amount of money raised by each team went back to the team. Only 4% of total sales is used to pay for the administration fees which includes the rental of Moneris machines, credit card processing fees and banking fees.

 

  • TG Hockey receives all money raised by liquor sales and is directed back to the arena for improvements such as the new monitor and software for dressing room assignments.  It has been used for such things as new nets, bumper pads for Timbit hockey, dressing room improvements.  (TG Hockey does not participate in or receive funds from any casino opportunity)

 

Catering Opportunity:

I would also like to extend the opportunity to any licensed caterers within our hockey community who would like to be our food provider for the evening.  If you are interested in catering the Silent Auction, please contact me at silentauction@mcknighthockey.com  by October 13, 2017. 

 

Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing you at the rink!
