To get more details about each auction item click on the headline description of the item and scroll down. Scroll all the way down and link to the donor's website. View the auction frequently as more donations will come in over the course of the auction. AND if there's something you really want, check to make sure you haven't been outbid. There are 3 pages of donations, so to view them all click 'next' at the top or bottom of each page or scroll back and forth between pages. Our donors have given to the Fundraiser this year because they believe in the value of supporting deserving youth through the Neil Falkner Outward Bound Legacy. Youth are chosen for these annual awards on the basis of need. You can view the auction as it is being created. Online bidding begins at 9 am (Pacific Time), April 8. Online bidding will close at 9 pm, April 18. Bidding will continue at the Live Auction at the April 19 Fundraiser. We hope you will join us but if you are unable to attend the fundraiser you can make a 'proxy' bid on any item you want. Your proxy bid will not be identified on the auction site. If live event bidders do not make a bid about your 'proxy' bid, the item is yours for the 'proxy' bid amount. You can also simply donate to Neil's legacy here on the auction site by clicking on the "Donate Money" button. All donations of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt. Your support is appreciated. And please Support Our Supporters.
About Neil Falkner Outward Bound Legacy
Neil Falkner was a skier, outdoors enthusiast, motorcyclist, and adventurer who died while on a backcountry skiing trip in the Canadian Rockies in April 2002. In his teens, his mother sent him on an Outward Bound excursion. He told her it was the best gift she’d ever given him.
The memorial legacy fund was established in 2003 and has now sent a total of 24 youth on Outward Bound Wilderness Programs - programs that help them develop leadership skills, self-confidence, and team work. Two youth are selected each year for this challenging opportunity. They are all grade 10s who return to their schools eager to share and build on their new strengths and leadership skills. This year 2 more young people will benefit from Neil's Legacy. To find out more, visit www.neilfalknerlegacy.ca
