House of Switzerland Fundraiser for Streetohome

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The House of Switzerland Canada, the Swiss pavilion located at Bridges on Granville Island, will be hosting a fundraising auction now until February 28th in support of Streetohome.

In Vancouver today, at least 3,700 people don’t have a home to call their own. Streetohome is dedicated to ensuring that residents of our city have access to safe, decent, affordable housing and the support they need to make a difference in their lives.

Items up for grabs include everything from toques and aprons to pins, coffee machines, chocolate and even the cutout pictured below.

Here’s how the auction will work:

  • Visit this website to view the item
  • Email the item number, contact information, and bid amount to [email protected]. Bids will be updated on the website in the morning, afternoon, and evening. The highest bidders will be contacted by phone at the end of the auction, February 28th.
  • Winning bidders must pick up their items at the House of Switzerland Canada 2010 on March 1st between 5:00pm and 10:00pm. Credit card and cash purchase only.
  • You can own a piece of Switzerland’s Vancouver 2010 history by bidding on these items. The best part is that you can help support those in our community through Streetohome, adding to the legacy of the Games.

      What a worthy event to highlight! 🙂 Thanks for this, Rebecca!

      (ps I do hope that after the Olympic madness we’ll do more Mexican restaurants exploration!) xo
