For that reason we have created the Tbaytel Art and Design Auction of Hope

Beginning Oct 15th-Oct 26 anyone can go online to and view the beautiful selection of donated pieces from local artists and imagine new design projects from local businesses.

Your donation and support of this auction will ensure breast cancer patients have access to the best treatment possible, close to home. Our community has always highly valued close-to-home treatment. Today’s reality cements this value more than ever.

120 dollars covers one child’s meals on the weekend for a whole school year. In an effort to support as many kids as possible, now more than ever…Any donation helps.
So if you’re in a position to give, please consider donating online.
Head to and select “Thunder Bay” to make sure your donation comes home.
