Silent Auction Donations

Our Bowling Tournament and Silent Auction is just around the corner (May 28)!

If you or someone you know has a company with a product or service you would like to donate we would love to have it!  No matter how big or small all would be greatly appreciated!  Donations are starting to arrive.  Let’s make the silent auction a huge success so we can help Olivia do what she wanted to do most – help others!!!

2018 Bowling Tournament and Silent Auction

Family, friends and volunteers of the Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust invite you to our Annual Bowling Tournament 🎳 and Silent Auction Fundraiser! Let’s all come together to raise funds so we can continue to help Olivia do “Great Things!

DATE: May 26, 2018

TIME: 7:00 pm

COST: $25.00 per person (includes shoe rental if needed). Book your lane early as we always sell out!

This fun-filled evening begins at 7 pm sharp with a 3-string bowling tournament consisting of 14 teams (5 bowlers per team). Winner takes home a ribbon 🏅 and bragging rights! (We ask the bowlers to arrive at 6:30 for lane assignments)

During the tournament we will also be holding our Silent Auction with tons of great items to bid on – bring your wallets (cash, e-transfer and cheques only).

All evening we will be selling Olivia’s Signature Tree items, holding a bake sale, 50/50 draw, weighted blanket raffle and selling spaces on our NEW Wine and Craft Beer Board!

We cannot think of a better way to honour and celebrate Olivia since her passion was bowling! All funds raised this evening will go back to our community in the form of post-secondary scholarships and donations to organizations that focus on our youth, animals in need and those less fortunate.

~ Don’t forget to join our Face Book Event to see updates and the silent auction items as they become available 😊

Donation for Phoenix 2017

Next up to receive some kindness this holiday season from Olivia’s Trust is Phoenix.

Olivia’s passion was helping others, especially those less fortunate. She helped many friends who had lost their homes for various reasons so we could think of no better way to honour her memory than to give to Phoenix.

Today Olivia’s Trust donated winter coats, hats, mitts, socks, toiletries and other goodies for 6 females and 6 males 🎁

If you or your family and friends are looking for a way to donate or give back you should consider Phoenix. Go to http://www.phoenixyouth.ca for their Wish List and ways to donate.

Feed Nova Scotia (Holiday Donation 2017)

We are thrilled to announce one of the recipients of Olivia’s kindness this holiday season will be Feed Nova Scotia.

Olivia’s Trust is donating $750.00 to help put turkeys on the tables of those in need. We would like to send a special thank you to Jym Line Glassware Ltd. for matching our donation to make it a total of $1500.00. That means 60 families will get a turkey with the help of our donations.

We would encourage all other businesses and individuals with the means to match or exceed our donation to help ensure every family in need has a turkey to share with their loved ones on Christmas Day 🎄

Stay tuned for more donations from Olivia’s Trust this giving season 🎁
