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.
