Expect the Extraordinary 2013 — Silent Auction

Expect the Extraordinary!

EtE is a night of fabulous entertainment provided by an extraordinary array of performers on October 7, 2013. We are seeking your participation in this event by asking for a donation for our Silent Auction, which will be running concurrently with the show, in the lobby of the Stratford Festival Theatre.

Our annual Expect the Extraordinary! event is our most important annual fundraising activity. Since our first night in 2000, the proceeds of this event helped us purchase the heritage home at 101 Brunswick St, providing five affordable-housing units and a gathering centre for members of Stratford’s professional performing arts community. Our most important work is the Supporting Cast program, which aims to improve the well being of our senior artists and keep them connected to local services and colleagues. We look to Expect the Extraordinary! to provide funds to reduce the building mortgage; maintain and improve our property; and to expand our services to reach more members in need.

The silent auction begins at 6 pm, before the 8 pm show time and concludes during the intermission. Items will be displayed in the lobby. We may promote some auction items on our website before the event. We expect successful bidders to take possession of their item at the end of the show. Your name and/or business description will be acknowledged on the bid sheet, and if requested, a tax receipt for the final purchase price that night can be issued.

We expect to sell over 700 tickets to the public through the Festival's Box Office, with many audience members returning every year to this popular event.

Please consider becoming a pal to PAL by donating an item to our silent auction.

Please respond before September 21 to Arlene at or 519 271 5285 to arrange pickup or delivery of your generous donation.

Thank you.

Arlene Crooks-Best,

PAL Stratford 2013 Silent Auction Convener
