Each year at the Canadian Foster Family Association (CFFA) National Conference a Silent Auction is held. Provinces and Territories are asked to donate items for the silent auction, and members attending are encouraged to donate items as well. In past years it has been very successful and fun for all those attending having the opportunity to bid on items from across Canada.
The silent auction is an important fundraiser for us with proceeds used to publish our newsletter, the Bulletin, costs of our annual conference and Annual General Meeting etc.
While packing your bags for this year’s conference being held in beautiful Prince Edward Island, include some items for the silent auction. If you will not be attending and would like to donate, please contact your Provincial CFFA Director who will be attending and could bring your items.
Thank you in advance for your support of this event.
2011 CFFA Conference “Building Bridges” will be held in PEI. May 9 – 14th. More details TBA.
