Facebook LIVE Fundraiser for Joeanna’s House

Facebook LIVE Fundraiser for Joeanna’s House

We started Facebook LIVE  auctions from our living room, when we closed our store doors to the public in April. We wanted to create a fun environment for customers and new friends to collect sports cards and interact with us while everyone was collecting from home. We’ve hosted over twenty auctions in the past few months, three times per week and have between 30-40 people watching on Facebook. It’s been a blast and we’ve met many new people! The idea for a fundraiser evolved when someone wanted to donate the card they bought to someone else. 

For the past two years, Players Choice Sports has been a sponsor of the Homebase Baseball Tournament featuring some of our favourite NHL players; raising money for the KGH Foundation’s Project – Joeanna’s House. 

JoeAnna’s House is situated beside the Kelowna General Hospital and provides a home-away-from home to keep families together when they need it most.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19, the baseball tournament has been cancelled but we wanted to continue on with our fundraising efforts and decided to run a Friday night auction and donate 100% of the bids to Joeanna’s House. We hope to raise $3000 during our June 5th Facebook LIVE Auction.

Players Choice Selling through Facebook LIVE

During these times of self-isolation and having the store doors closed, we have needed to be creative in connecting with our customers. Thank goodness for social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram! This week we’ve started hosting Facebook LIVE Auctions of trading cards. You can join from anywhere – just need a computer or phone and account on Facebook.

From vintage to current, we have millions of hockey cards to offer. We’ve also auctioned off some basketball cards for other sportsfans and fill be finding some baseball, football, wrestling and entertainment cards as well. Today we were lucky enough to have Billy C, Head Designer from Upper Deck join us and answer questions from our customers.

The events lasts 1-2 hours and we keep it interactive. Let us know what cards you are looking for and you may find it becoming the next auction item! We plan to be on-air Monday, Wednesday and Sunday for LIVE auctions and Friday nights for Box Breaks. Check out our facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/playerschoicekelowna for updated times of Facebook LIVE events.
