The Health and Wellness Foundation of Hay River plays an essential support role to the Hay River Health and Social Services Authority. It continues to provide funding to purchase critically needed equipment to enhance a higher standard of health care in Hay River.
The Foundation is excited to announce that they are hosting their fourth annual on-line auction at www.HRHFauction.com! This year they are proud to announce that they have partnered with another local service club to host the auction, the Rotary Club of Hay River Sunrise.
The auction began on Monday, November 4th and closes on Monday, November 18th, 2013. Similar to previous auctions, they will offer a variety of products and services from in and around Hay River. “The Foundation auction is very similar to other web-based auctions in terms of viewing photos of each item, reading the description of each item, listing conditions, submitting bids, and final payment options”, says Auction Chairperson Evellyn Coleman.
“For our participating businesses it is a great promotion. It will increase their on-line advertising and build walk-in traffic as bidders view auction items at their location. For our bidders it is fun and exciting experience. There will be great deals for everyone. ”
Over the past 12 years, the Foundation has successfully raised over $945,000 for our local Health Authority and the programs and services it offers. The Rotary Club of Hay River Sunrise continues to be a very active organization by focusing on the health and education of our community. The Club has offered a variety of services such as the annual Wine Fest, Hay River Dragon’s Den, Books for Kids, etc.
The Rotary Club will be hosting their annual Wine Festival during the auction on Saturday, November 16th. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to participate in the auction either live or on-line, as computers will be available. The Wine Festival will be an excellent opportunity to meet your fellow bidders and view some of the items up for auction.
