The silent auction returns after a highly successful 2014 event.

Run as a “skills swap,” the fundraiser features items made and provided by York staff and faculty. Last year, it included hand-blown glass ornaments, home-baked treats, ice wine, art, prepared lunches for one week and more.

Those interested in bidding must attend in person.

The York Cares Campaign has reached 50 per cent of its $220,000 goal. The pledge campaign runs until Wednesday, Nov. 25.
