Man Cave Auction Goes Tonight
Prince George, B.C. – The North Cariboo branch of the SPCA has teamed up with Wood Wheaton and Prince George Motors to host the inaugural Man Cave Auction, a fundraiser with all proceeds going to animals in need.
Branch Manager Jamie Walsh says “it’s an evening event so there’s dinner and an auction, a live and a silent auction performed by auctioneers from the States. So Rick and Kelly Dale from Ricks Restorations are going to be here performing the auction.”
“We have some pretty big, big items that are going to be available there”, things like Westjet flights to anywhere they fly, chartered fishing trips on Vancouver Island, Seahawks packages, entertainment equipment, hunting and fishing gear, sports memorabilia and more.
And there will be a couple of Las Vegas entertainers on hand, “De Niro Guy” and Jack “Nicholson” Bullard. The original Mantracker, Terry Grant, will also be on hand. Walsh says “they’re all in support of the SPCA, they supports the SPCAs wherever they are. Everybody is on board here to help the shelter out and its just to raise funds and raise awareness to help us take care of the animals that come through the shelter every single day.”
The Man Cave Auction is being held at the Civic Centre and Walsh says “we estimated to sell about 500 tickets and we’re well underway to do so, so it is going to be a larger-scale event. Tickets will be available at the door and you can also buy them at Wood Wheaton and at P.G. Motors. They’re $100 each. That includes dinner and the potential for prizes and live and silent auction items.”
Walsh says while Man Cave Auction may sound like a male-oriented title there are plenty of items in the auction that will be appealing to women. She also says the hope is that this auction can become an annual fundraiser event.
Doors open at 6 tonight with cocktails at 6:30 and the auction program beginning at 7:30pm.
