Auction Volunteers

Everyone loves a good auction and Golden Rescue puts together a fun and lively online auction a couple of times each year, raising money for our deserving and needy Goldens. Our Auction team needs your help in two key areas:

  • We need volunteers to source a wide variety of auction items ~ you need to be resourceful (begging helps 😊) and our team lead will also provide you with suggestions/leads on people and organizations to contact.
  • Many items need to be picked up and delivered to Toronto. Then, after the auction, items need to be delivered. If you’re willing to do some delivery driving, we would appreciate the help.

Estimated time Commitment: whatever time you’re able to give.
