The NTPL Staff & Board Christmas party for 2015 was held yesterday (Sunday, December 6th) at Da Grazia Ristorante in Alliston. On top of fantastic food, we enjoyed bidding against one another to raise funds for a very worthy Christmas cause at our first ever Christmas Elves Silent Auction.
It was an opportunity for us to give back a little bit of our good fortune, as we raised funds for the Christmas Elves, an organization dedicated to ensuring seniors in long term care homes receive gifts for Christmas. With partnership from local businesses, who donated wonderful items to the auction, we were able to raise $564 for this cause, helping to ensure that no seniors in care homes go without gifts this Christmas.
We would like to thank the businesses that made generous donations to the auction:
- Barber Plus
- Cheryl Kelly-Ellsworth, Mary Kay Consultant
- Full Steam Carpet Care
- Grit Inc.
- Jennifer Gilbert Photography
- Julie Fox-Snively, Independent Epicure Consultant
- Malikai Bistro
- New Orleans Pizza
- RBC Tottenham, Beeton & Alliston
- Rustic Roots & Co.
- Tottenham Steam Jr. “A” Hockey Club
- Waking Life Studios
Thank you to all the staff and board who bid generously, as well as to the wonderful community partners who donated the beautiful items we were able to bid on. Thank you also to Da Grazia Ristorante, who prepared a wonderful meal and did a fantastic job hosting us.
