The Fondation médicale will have more auctions on social networks



The Fondation Médicale des Laurentides et des Pays-d’en-Haut launches another fundraising initiative to increase its investment in the purchase of healthcare equipment.

 Beginning at the end of March or in early April, several items will be put up for auction on social media and the Fondation’s website. Web surfers will be able to place as many bids as they want. Winners will be announced at the 2018 golf tournament.

A new revenue source

“It is a way for us to diversify our revenue sources and to involve as many people as possible in the silent auction held annually at the golf tournament,” notes the executive director of the Fondation Médicale, Daniel Desjardins.

This Fondation Médicale concept was inspired by the success of the last Internet-based auction. Pierre Plouffe of the eponymous aquatic centre in Mont-Tremblant generously donated two pairs of tickets worth $179.95 and $160.50 for the Shakira and Shania Twain shows, and the tickets were purchased by the owner of Centre Hi-Fi Select in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Steven Roberts, for $475.00.
