Community Social & Fundraising Auction

June 8 / 2:00 PM - June 8 / 6:00 PM

The Ottawa Shambhala Meditation Centre will be holding a fundraising social and auction Sunday Jun 2-6 pm. This is the main fundraising event for the year and a great opportunity for us all to practice generosity. Can you make something to donate? Do you have something lovely but not quite right for you? Tickets you might not use? Services to offer? Friends or business associates who might donate? Let the Auction Committee know at

We're off to a good start already - a Shambhala member from Montreal has already donated a collection of original artwork from mid-20th century Quebec artists James Guitet, Simone Hudon and others as well as a calligraphy by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. You can see some samples at our Auction Web Page.

The event will feature a live auction, a silent auction and a wine and cheese reception. With our own Henry Chapin, as auctioneer, the live auction promises fun and high drama!  It'll start around 3:30.

You don't have to be a high roller in the auction to have a great time!  Please join us.
