About Our Auction
Are you looking for some great items for your Valentine this year? Something cool, something practical, or something unique? We have it all – and all in support of a great cause! This online auction is being held jointly by Special Olympics Ontario and Jason’s Quest. Keep checking in for new items being added regularly!
About Jason’s Quest:
Jason’s Quest was initiated by a Special Olympics athlete, Jason Scorcia. Jason has been involved with Special Olympics for over 25 years. Not only does he have a passion for sport, he is a true and enthusiastic advocate for the movement. Jason’s Quest was Jason’s dream. Its primary objective is to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Ontario. Jason is well known and respected by many in his hometown community of Caledon. Fundraising comes naturally to him; he has a passion for helping and supporting others, ensuring fairness and equity for all.
During these challenging times with no in person fundraising events or activities, it was Jason’s idea to host this online auction, so that he could continue to raise much needed funds that will directly support athletes & programs.
About Wizard Foundation and Special Olympics Ontario
The Wizard Foundation was formed by nine high school friends who felt compelled to give back to the community, and made Special Olympics Ontario (SOO) its first draft choice. As a result, we have won every year since! The cumulative donation to this amazing charitable organization after 34 years is over $2 million. However, our greatest satisfaction is the knowledge of the impact that the support from hundreds of companies over the years has made for over 26,000 individuals with an intellectual disability. Thank you for making it possible.
Special Olympics Ontario provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children, youth, and adults with intellectual disabilities. Our resources give these individuals continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community. Through sport, Special Olympics is building communities of acceptance and inclusion for all people - regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or cultural differences. We are so proud of all our accomplishments and how we've changed history and the perception towards individuals with an intellectual disability.
