Online Fundraising Auction

Online Fundraising Auction

Bid on fabulous prizes and help us inspire the artist in everyone!

At Place des Arts, we believe everyone should have the chance to explore their creative passions. That’s why we’re raising funds to improve access to the arts for under-served and in-need people in our community.

We need your help! Mark your calendars and get set to bid on dozens of the fabulous items up for grabs in our October online auction fundraiser.

Starting October 14 at 9am and running until October 27 at 9pm, just one click lets you bid on a variety of amazing auction packages including travel, entertainment and culture, dining and more.

Check out a few of the exciting items up for bid:

  • A two night stay on the Water's Edge Resort's private island: the only property with access to both the serene Ucluelet Inlet & the active Marina from every suite.
  • Experience BC with return airfare for two on any scheduled Harbour Air Seaplanes flight to/from South Vancouver (Richmond). Destinations include Victoria, Nanaimo, Sechelt and more.
  • Rest and relax at the Hotel Nexus Seattle with a two-night stay in a luxurious Japanese hydrotherapy tub room. While you're there, enjoy a Seattle Mariners game and explore the Seattle Art Museum!
  • Rock out at the Commodore Ballroom with a Live Nation show and table reservation for two.
  • And much more!

With some of the highest rates of working poverty in Metro Vancouver, the need for low barrier and inclusive arts programs is greater than ever in Coquitlam. Your bids will make a difference. The funds we raise will support Place des Arts’ program subsidies and outreach initiatives, benefiting in-need children, youth and adults in our community, furthering our mission to inspire the artist in everyone!

Please be sure to visit this page frequently for updates, details on how to bid and more sneak peeks of our exciting auction items. Bidders can create an account or bookmark our auction website at; must be 18 or older to bid.
