The 2022 Giller Light Bash volunteer committee decided to do things a little differently this year! Rather than hosting an official “event”, they are moving things online, starting with a fantastic auction, with goods and services from local businesses across Canada. They will also host fun contests, games, giveaways and book defenses.
The online auction will open on Monday, October 31, and will close on Monday, November 7, 2022 on www.gillerlightbash.ca. The auction will close at 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time, 8:30 p.m. Mountain Time, 9:30 p.m. Central Time, 10:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 11:30 pm Atlantic Time, 12:00 am Newfoundland Time
Thanks to supporters like you, the Giller Light Bash events have raised over $1 million for Frontier College’s literacy programs in Canada.
