Helping women and children escape violence and rebuild lives.


Every National Headstart Conference, the Foundation holds a Silent and Live Auction, and 2019 is no exception.

The success of the Shelter Auction depends on donations from Agents, Brokerages, Sponsors, and Suppliers. Donations range from travel and special experiences to coveted items that can be easily transported home or shipped by the donor.

If you would like to donate an item or experience to the Auction, call committee member Diane Birk – Cell: 604-760-4884, or Email: dianebirk@gmail.com. Every donor receives recognition, so think of it as a chance to promote yourself to all the conference delegates, and especially the successful bidder.

Bring your donation items to Registration on Wednesday, September 18th between 3:00 and 6:00 pm, but do let us know what you are bringing.
