About the auction
Autism Connections Fredericton is excited to host our first ever online silent auction fundraiser to celebrate “World Autism Awareness Day 2021”, which is April 2nd. World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) aims to put a spotlight on the hurdles that people with Autism and others living with Autism face every day. As a growing global health issue owing to its increasing exposure in the press and common knowledge, Autism is an issue that is only gaining more understanding and WAAD activities are planned every year to further increase and develop world knowledge of children and adults who have Autism Spectrum Disorder.
This fundraiser will open on April 1st, 2021 and run until June 1st. The contributions from this silent auction will help to support the vital programs that our center offers to the community of Fredericton. The virtual platform will allow us to follow all COVID-19 protocols and keep our community safe.
The virtual silent auction will be hosted on the 32auctions website. We are also thrilled to announce that this website will continue to operate after the end of the silent auction as a platform for individuals with autism to sell their artwork and crafts - an incredible opportunity for the community.
