Variety Market and Auction

Comments 22 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Variety Market and Auction is the fundraising shopping event of the year and it will take place on Sunday, October 6th at the Westin Bayshore. Presented by Buy-Low Foods, proceeds from this brunch, live auction, silent auction, and bargain grocery shopping event benefit Variety.

The BC chapter of Variety was established in 1965, and since then has raised over $170 million for children who have special needs, and their families, across the province. Through three priorities – Cares, Freedom and Future – Variety provides grants to individuals and organizations for life-saving, life-changing and life-enriching equipment, supplies and programs.

Where: Sunday, October 6, 2013 from 9:00am to 2:00pm
When: The Westin Bayshore Vancouver (1601 Bayshore Drive)
Tickets: Available online for $70 (members) or $75 (non-members).

This is the 32nd anniversary of the Variety Market and Auction where you can grocery shop in style (for everything from a rack of ribs to paper towels and bags of carrots) and enjoy a fabulous Westin Bayshore brunch with special guests after you fill your cart.

    What a great cause to support. Supporting the families of those with special needs is awesome, and sometimes overlooked. It takes a village!
