Charity Bentwood Box Silent Auction at Lattimer Gallery

Peter Lattimer

At Lattimer Gallery, the past seven holiday seasons have begun with an exciting Charity Bentwood Box Silent Auction, with each year’s donations surpassing the last. What begins as a blank cedar bentwood box is transformed into a beautiful work of art, all in the name of charity.

Three years ago, we were pleased to announce a three-year partnership with the Urban Native Youth Association, a Vancouver organization which has been providing 21 prevention-focused programs and services to Native youth since 1988. Last year, we decided to assign 100% of all donations from our charity auctions to UNYA for the foreseeable future. Last year was by far our most successful year to date, with $38,909 being raised for UNYA. As of 2013, we have raised over $100,000 for Aboriginal organizations through this one event and we hope that our customers and matching partners will continue to help support this worthy cause.
