Festive Season Silent Auction in support of Ocean View

Click HERE for the Festive Season Silent Auction!

For more than 50 years, Ocean View has enjoyed a sense of togetherness with our local community. We know that the local seniors we serve in both our long term care home and in the community are relying on us all – staff, volunteers, and community – to join together to help them as they age, and we especially feel this in our hearts at this generous and festive time of year!

We have been lucky to receive the support of many amazing donors in our local community as we enter this holiday season, as you will see as you look through this silent auction! By donating these amazing items, they are lending their support to those we serve. We are so thankful for their generosity, and for the opportunity to celebrate the many exciting businesses, small and large, in our local community!

Now it’s your opportunity to give the gift of your support to those we serve, and perhaps score an amazing holiday gift for someone you love. We invite you to bid on any of these wonderful items, and to feel good doing so! Your support will help us check things off of Ocean View’s wish list for those we serve, including things like new mattresses to help our residents have a more restful sleep;  overbed tables to facilitate a more comfortable meal time; and much-needed items to assist with our physiotherapy support for seniors. Your support will make such a difference to those we serve as we ring in 2019!

Bidding will open on Nov. 19th at 5:00 pm and close on Dec. 5th at 5:00 pm
