About Our Auction
United Way Thunder Bay and Shkoday Abinojiiwak Obimiwedoon (Shkoday), and Shania Kids Can (SKC) are excited to announce a new partnership that will fund and support a new Biwaase’aa program at St. Vincent’s Catholic Elementary School.
Shkoday and Shania Kids Can programming both focus on increasing the life skills of Indigenous & non-Indigenous children, youth, and their families through strategies of academic improvement, emotional development, cultural awareness, and nutritional support. The new Biwaase’aa Program will focus on mental health, social & emotional behaviours and physical well being while focusing on cultural teachings to achieve these goals.
In support of this initiative and to help raise funds for the development and launch of this program, we will be hosting:
1. A gala film screening of ‘For Love’, which is the latest project from Shania Twain who lends her vocal talents to the narration of the film. This will be on November 10th at the Victoria Inn in Thunder Bay. For more info and to purchase tickets, visit: https://uwaytbay.ca/event/forlove-filmscreening/
2. An Online Auction which will feature Indigenous items and Shania Twain memorabilia packages. Bids will be open on this site until November 15th. See all items below. Watch for new items to be added. If YOU would like to contribute some items, please contact Erika at 807-252-9494.
