If you are new to Elliot Lake, you may be unfamiliar with ARIEL. We are a volunteer-driven, registered not-for-profit. Our mission is to provide a strong voice for arts and culture in the City of Elliot Lake. Not surprisingly, our membership includes local artists, many of whom have donated generously to our silent auction. The auction is part of the Winterfest 2024 Kick-off, which will be held February 9, at Collins Hall.
We thank every one of them for sharing the gift of their talents. This is one of a number of posts depicting auction items donated by the Arts Community. To bid you must attend the event.

Aubrey Millard is a sailor and a member of Elate, Elliot Lake's amateur theatre ensemble. His donation is of such stuff as dreams are made on: an afternoon sail for two, including a steak BBQ supper at anchor in Long Point Cove, and a sunset sail back to the North Channel Yacht Club in a 32 to 42 foot sailing yacht.
How much will you bid during ARIEL's silent auction to make this dream a reality? To purchase tickets to the Winterfest Kick-off and bid on a summer dream, click here.
Thank you, Aubrey!

BanPoM Thai Cuisine on Dunn Road; have you tried their take-out? Pom, the owner, has donated one cooking lesson for four people. (Date night anyone?)

Thank you, Elliot Lake Model Railroad Club! Your donation to our silent auction is going to go to a good home! Is that home, going to be your's? This collection is a great combination of Canadian and European railroad memorabilia.
The railroad kit is complete. It includes track and a transformer, so you'll just have to open the box and set it up. The bridge and building kits are DIY. You will have to put them together.
To bid on this item you must attend the Winterfest 2024 Kick-off. You can purchase tickets at our online box office or Alpine Flowers in the Paris Plaza (cash only).

Just 16 days to go until the Winterfest 2024 Kick-off event. Add a day until the 11 AM children's show . Both events are at Collins Hall. To purchase tickets online buy here. If you would prefer to pay cash, visit Alpine Flowers in the Paris Plaza.
Our team of volunteers is putting the finishing touches on the cabaret-style evening, featuring Liam Kearney. Tablecloths, centrepieces - everything needed to ensure the evening is in style. More volunteers are needed for the night of the event to help with the silent auction. Email ARIEL to volunteer.
The children's show also stars the versatile Liam Kearney. This event is best suited for children under 12, who must be accompanied by an adult.
Because our Kick-off event is so close to Valentine's Day, some of our silent auction items will come with a bonus; a handcrafted Valentine's card. The only thing the highest bidder will have to add is some romantic wrapping.
Thank you to our supporters
In addition to the City of Elliot Lake and Elliot Lake Retirement Living, ARIEL thanks our growing list of supporters. To see the full list of silent auction donations visit this page.
