Virtual Silent Auction- Call for Participants 2020

06 May 2020 1:26 PM | MacKenzie Gott

Donate items to our first-ever Virtual Silent Auction, to be held June 18-25, 2020!

The in-person 2020 AAO Conference was cancelled this year, but our commitment to supporting Ontario archivists continues!

We are looking for AAO members and supporters to donate non-perishable items that can be mailed, such as (but not limited to):

Artwork – Archival supplies – Books  –

Hand-crafted pieces (e.g. jewelry, knitted wares) – Pottery –

Gift Cards (e.g. food and drink, goods, services)

In an effort to support small and/or locally owned businesses during this time, we encourage our supporters and members to consider donating gift cards from these types of businesses that can ship items in Ontario.

Funds raised from this auction will go to the AAO Shirley Spragge Education Fund, to encourage the continuing education of archivists in Ontario. Your donations are greatly appreciated. A donation to the virtual silent auction would not only support this fund, but would honour the memory of a respected colleague. All items donated (including shipping costs) will receive a tax receipt.

If you are interested in donating to this year’s virtual silent auction or have any questions, please email

On behalf of the AAO’s Advancement Committee
