About Our Auction

As you know, physical distancing restrictions mean many events in 2020 and 2021 have been cancelled or postponed. Because of this, we unfortunately had to cancel the 17th Annual Alterna Savings Golf Classic in support of Candlelighters.

Through these times, the challenges of dealing with the effects of childhood cancer remain. As a long-time supporter, Alterna is committed to wrapping our arms around Candlelighters during these extraordinary circumstances.

To make sure our support continues, we have decided to host a week-long virtual auction fundraiser from August 23rd – August 30th 2021. We have a wide array of exciting items to bid on this summer in order to continue our support.

We are cognizant of safety precautions and all auction items will be delivered safely and should be used following the guidance from Canada’s Public Health Officials and in accordance with local bylaws.

Just last year, we raised over $120,000 for this great cause. With your support, this year we hope to raise even more for the Candlelighters. All proceeds from this year’s event will be raised for their e-Reader and iPad Program.

About Candlelighters

Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Support Programs is a local, not-for-profit organization that exists to enrich the lives of children and families coping with childhood cancer in the national capital and surrounding region. Through the provisions of Family Support, Financial Support, Education Support and Survivor Support, Candlelighters programs make a real and tangible difference in the life of these families.

Thanks to your generous support, Candlelighters has supported over 150 families through the E-Reader Program since its inception. Candlelighters E-Reader Program, a core program within Education Support, provides both children with cancer and their parents a quick, easily transportable means to access resources related to their cancer diagnosis and also provide a positive way to occupy themselves throughout treatments and recovery.

In this age of technology, the E-Reader Program is progressive and forward thinking. It gives easy access to a number of resources; it’s portable and can be used by multiple family members with ease.
