About Our Auction
The Tom Hendry Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the talent of Canadian playwrights across the country. We offer cash prizes (in some cases, along with publishing opportunities and mentorships) to our recipients for the Carol Bolt, Stage West Pechet Family Musical, Stage West Pechet Family Comedy, Sharon Enkin TYA Award, and RBC Emerging Playwright awards. We also offer the Bra D’Or Award, which celebrates an individual who supports and promotes the work of Canadian women playwrights, and a Lifetime Membership Award.
This online auction coincides with our silent auction at our live event, meaning that we can offer bidding opportunities not just to attendees of the ceremony, but to anyone interested in our exciting items! The auction is our major fundraising event of the year, and every dollar donated helps us to provide programs and support to our members.
The Live Silent Auction during the Tom Hendry Awards on October 27, 2019 will take place at the Arts and Letters Club in Toronto. It will conclude at 9:30pm. The Hendry Awards event is free for all to attend! RSVP to the awards now: https://playwrightsguild.ca/2019awards/
Once the winners have been announced, items can be picked up at the awards ceremony, at our office in downtown Toronto, or shipping can be arranged. Shipping costs are not included in the auction price, and winners who are unable to pick up their prizes acknowledge that shipping will incur an extra fee.
