The BC Association for Community Living (BCACL) held its second annual Reason to Care Art Re-Sale and Live and Silent Auction on Saturday, March 3, 2012. Art lovers picked up treasures throughout the day and in the evening’s live and silent auction. To all the artists and art collectors who donated artwork and the volunteers and sponsors who helped make it a success:
Thank you! Together we raised almost $25,000 to support BCACL’s crucial work.
Over 600 pieces of art were donated from artists, supporters of community living and members of the broader community. Guests at the evening reception and live auction also had the opportunity to participate in raffles or bid for fabulous items such as travel vouchers, romantic getaways, event tickets, and gift baskets, all generously donated by event sponsors.

Volunteers included BCACL staff, board members, Reason to Care Art Sale committee members, their family members, friends as well as members of the community, including students from Magee Secondary School. Musical entertainment was provided by Lexi Thomas, Adam Reid, and Paul Sommerfeld, and local artist Cliff Milne engaged in a live painting demonstration to create a work that was auctioned in the evening event.
