The 2014 Annual Benefit Auction will be held on Friday, November 14th, 2014 at the Yellowknife Inn.
Once again, the YK Inn has graciously donated the use of the lower level boardrooms for the evening. Last year we rose over $46,000 and we hope to make it an even bigger year. If you would like to donate an item or service, or become a volunteer, please contact our office.
We can’t wait to see you there!
Achieving full citizenship, in the NWT, through equality, inclusion, accessibility and participation.
