Scottish Country Dance Teachers' Association (Canada)

2023 Silent Auction at the Teachers' Conference Weekend and Summer School

Donations Wanted for In-Person Silent Auction!

As part of TCW and Summer School, we will be holding an in-person Silent Auction supporting TAC. Proceeds from the Silent Auction will support TAC's Bobby Brown Music Apprenticeship Fund. We would be very grateful if you would consider donating an item(s) to the in-person Silent Auction held during the TCW Weekend and Summer School, July 28 to August 3, 2023.

Silent Auction items could include hand-made items, gently used and vintage clothes, especially items appropriate for SCD (cleaned and in good condition, please!); novelties ranging from fun and quirky to fabulous; Scottish-themed dishes, scarves, books, artwork; and anything in between. Gift cards to places such as Tim Hortons, Starbucks, etc., would be popular too.

Are you crafty? Do you have a special skill that you could teach on Zoom? This could be anything from a craft (sewing, art or ??) or a baking lesson to a dance or music lesson, or "how to repair a ??"

In 2019 and 2021, speciality baking was a runaway hit -- any baking enthusiasts out there? You can also consider non-tangible items such as a dance or a tune devised for the event or someone special.

We have created an Auction Contribution Form to make it easy to donate your items. You can download the donation form here.

Use this link to download rules covering auction bidding.

Please complete the form with details of the item you plan to donate, so I know what you will be bringing to Halifax, and send your completed form to me by July 20, 2023, to allow time to prepare for the Auction. You can also use the form to donate money in lieu of an item to support TAC's Bobby Brown Music Apprenticeship Fund.
