Raise Your Virtual Auction Paddle for Community Living Huntsville
Today is the day! Community Living Huntsville’s online art auction, Artists for Inclusion, officially opened for bids on June 14. You can view the pieces in person during the Huntsville Art Crawl, too!

I am excited for you to raise your virtual auction paddles to help build a more inclusive community where everyone feels that essential sense of belonging. And I am completely floored by the generousity of our arts community and auction contributors.

It has been an isolating and difficult 16 months for everyone, especially the more than 300 children and adults in North Muskoka, and their families, supported by Community Living Huntsville. And so, renowned artists, craftspeople and contributors in Muskoka and beyond have rallied to donate more than 50 one-of-a-kind items to our auction as a show of support – and to help raise needed funds.

Funds raised will bolster our Community Living Huntsville Pathways Program for adults, who live with developmental disabilities, but are deemed ineligible for government funding and support. The program, offered for free to people and families in need, relies on donations and fundraised dollars.

You can prevent people in our community from falling through the cracks. Register for the auction today at galabid.com/clhuntsville and bid, bid, bid! When you purchase these beautiful pieces of art, you will make a difference in the lives of your neighbours. Registration is now open and bidding starts today. Don’t miss out!

Auction closes June 30 at 8:00 PM.

2 inspired watercolours to Artists for Inclusion
Art has always been a passion for Christopher Pierce.

“I was thinking of what I wanted to be when I grew up. Every child asks themselves that question,” he says. “I found I was artistic.”

Pierce, a visual artist and Huntsville resident, has contributed two pieces, “Stonehenge” and “Lock Ness”, to Community Living Huntsville’s online art auction Artists for Inclusion held June 14 to 30.

Ways to give
Community Living Huntsville must raise more than $150,000 annually through private donations and special fundraising events to sustain our programs.
