Our December event is a highlight of CFUW St. Catharines annual calendar. It’s an evening for Club members to celebrate the season. Each year, our members work their inspired magic to donate a collection of wonderful items for our Silent Auction. These special gifts range from holiday baskets to opportunities to experience the many and varied talents of the CFUW members (such as gourmet dinners!). The proceeds from the evening support the causes in our community to which we are committed. Donation items will be accepted at the October & November meetings or can be dropped off at the locations listed below. Click here for the Item Donation Form.
