For anyone not familiar with it, Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto offers support for those touched by cancer. Gilda’s Club Worldwide was founded in 1991, in memory of comedienne and Second City alumni Gilda Radner, who lost her life to ovarian cancer.
Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto opened in 2001 and has been offering support to people touched by with cancer ever since. If you would like more information on Gilda’s Club, please visit them at GildasClubToronto.org
Throughout the year, the Charity Auction team works to locate autographed items and unique memorabilia for auction. If you are interested in making a donation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or come see us in the Viewing Room at Reversed Polarity.
The Charity Auction Viewing Room is open on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. Stop by to check out the auction items and pick something up from our Quick Sale and Dollar tables. (cash only.)
Check out our Virtual Viewing Room to get a sneak peak at autographs, memorabilia and other items!
We know 9 a.m. on Sunday seems really early. (We stay up late on Saturday too.) But it’s worth it. Here are some reasons why:
It’s a chance to score unique items you won’t find anywhere else. Previous auctions have featured Mark Sheppard’s personal Supernatural script, Colonel Tigh’s boxer shorts signed by Michael Hogan, Vala Mal Doran’s hair clip plus an autographed photo from Claudia Black, a package of hard-to-find swag from the hit Canadian TV series Flashpoint, and much more!
Sometimes you can get a fantastic deal. True, sometimes the bidding gets intense – all the better for Gilda’s Club. But if nobody else is interested in your dream item, you might get lucky and pick it up for less than you thought.
We can be bribed. Can’t stay to the end of the auction? For a small additional donation to Gilda’s Club, we’ll move the items up to be auctioned next.
It’s easy. Visions of Christie’s and Sotheby’s scaring you? Don’t worry. No registration required, no numbered paddles, no need to stay motionless for fear of suddenly spending thousands. Just show up, sit down, enjoy the show, and wave if you want to bid on something.
It’s fun. Our auctioneers are a riot, and the battle of the bids can get very exciting. So even if you don’t plan to buy anything, bring your coffee and enjoy the show! (In the past, guests have sometimes shown up as well to help auction special items.)
And, of course, it’s for a great cause.
In the Viewing Room, we only take cash only.
At the auction, we take cash, debit, Visa and MasterCard.
