Eventing Canada(!) regrets that we will not be hosting imagine(!) in 2011.
Support for this event has been disappointing in the last few years and organisers are reviewing the best way forward.

imagine(!) 2010

Our 17th silent auction, imagine(!), was held on May 1st at Woodington Lake Golf Club in Tottenham, ON. It proved to be another great evening for the 75 who attended, and we raised almost $1700 to support our Eventing team at the WEG .

What people are saying about imagine(!) 2010:

"The Imagine evening was absolutely fantastic; excellent dinner and fantastic auction items. Following our best Rolex performance ever, it was certainly disappointing more enthusiasts didn't support the evening- not discounting the importance of fundraising for the WEG's. Anyway, congratulations and thank you for a superb evening." - Peter Gray

"Fantastic evening at Imagine. Great to see such fantastic support!" - Allison Pezzack

 

imagine(!) 2009

imagine (!) 2009 was held July 25, 2009 at the Woodington Lake Golf Club in  Tottenham.  This popular fundraiser, which is now in its 16th year, has annually supported the elite Athletes of the Sport.   Your donations and support were greatly appreciated and a good time was had by all! Over $1200 was raised this year to supplement our athlete support fund. 

 

imagine(!) 2008

imagine (!) Beijing 2008" was held June 21, 2008 at the Woodington Lake Golf Club in beautiful Tottenham.  This popular fundraiser, which is now in its 15th year, has annually supported the elite Athletes of the Sport.  This year's proceeds are going to support of sending our Three-Day Team to Beijing.

The winner of a trip for two to Hong Kong to attend the Three Day Competition of the Beijing 2008 Olympics, 08 – 12 August in Hong Kong was:
GAYLE DENNISON of Orangeville, ON.

 

imagine(!) 2007

imagine!  It just gets better.  This was lucky year number 13 for this one-of-a-kind silent auction event, which forms a primary source of funds to support our athletes and organizers throughout the year.  This year, by popular demand, saw a return to the Orangeville Fairgrounds in Mono, ON.  The venue is just about perfect to layout the many donated items gathered for the occasion.

With over 110 items on the books this year, the punters weren't to be disappointed.  Over 130 attendees were allocated a bid number to register their bids on items of interest.  Some of the hotly contested items included custom XC body protectors from Phoenix Performance Products and Casel Equi, Charles Owen Cross Country helmets from Baker's Harness, an enormous DVD gift basked from BFS Entertainment, a basket of English tea and confectionary and, of course a variety of entries, schooling sessions and lessons that always prove popula.

Bidders worked up an appetite as they competed discreetly, and Ah Lindella Caterers were on hand to serve a generous buffet including all the usual favourites. The most eclectic items went to live auction, under the hammer of Usha Knabe, and they included a training session at David O'Connor farm in Virginia, a body protector signed by the Canadian Team, a performance of the sequel to the infamous play "Scattersex" by Hugh Morshead and dinner-for-four at the lesser known "Estrogen Palace" - promising an evening of entertainment like no other for the highest bidder!?!

To round out the perfect evening, the live auction was followed by dancing courtesy of D.J Ken Burgess.

Throughout the course of the evening, the silent auction items were closed discreetly at random and winning bidders were revealed during a checkout process.  By the time the cash register was closed for the evening, the net proceeds totalled $9500, half of which was donated immediately to support the Canadian Eventing Team on their journey to the Pam Am Games in Rio de Janeiro at the end of July.  Waylon Roberts, Jessica Phoenix and Penny Rowland, representing the Canadian Eventing team, were among the attendees and virtually no-one left empty handed.  In fact, I'm looking forward to Imagine! 2008 already – see you there!
