Metchosin Foundation Fundraiser at Bilston Creek Farm

The first guests arrive - previewing auction items

The Foundation Board thanks Andrew & Melanie Penn, Calum Oliver and the rest of the outstanding Bilston Creek Farm team, for their generosity in hosting an amazing evening fund-raiser on December 16.  


The unequalled ambiance of Bilston Creek Farm was the perfect setting for a covid-safe year-end event.  With outdoor lighting complemented by a cool, clear sky and nearly full moon, oysters and champagne and lots of other tempting treats were served up by Bramble, inside the Bilston Barn.  Outside seating set up around fire pits and propane heaters welcomed small groups of guests, while inside the barn, diners had a great view of the big screen (courtesy of Legacy Drive-in) and an opportunity to get their bids in on dozens of great silent auction offerings.

Our sincere thanks to each of the many donors of the silent auction offerings, and to the Bilston team for procuring such a compelling selection of goods & services, to tempt generous bids.  Thanks also to Brian Domney, for his very fine job as auctioneer.  Our sincere gratitude, as well, to all of the folks who attended, making the evening such a success.  


Thank you to everyone involved in this fund-raiser to support healthy lands and waters – the foundation for a healthy Metchosin community!  We look forward to directing the proceeds toward local environmental stewardship and educational initiatives.
