38th year of this event!
Kalamalka’s Main Fundraiser
Kalamalka Rotary’s 37th Annual Dream Auction will be held as a hybrid event this year, offering an in-person experience combined with an online auction. This popular social event and fundraiser will occur on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at the Vernon Golf and Country Club. The on-line format will provide opportunities to bid on new items as they arrive. And bidding starts today!
“To respect global health concerns, we are moving the event to this newly renovated venue and offering a reduced capacity event,” says Dream Auction Chair Brian Reid. “Moving the auction online will help those who wish to support our efforts and participate easily. In addition, guests may register for the live-stream event which is happening in conjunction with the reduced capacity in-person event and will feature special guests, performers and entertainment throughout the evening.”
Everyone is encouraged to participate in the “Virtual” opportunities being presented as Kal Rotarians bring the 37th Dream Auction Fundraiser to a broader audience.
Together we can make so many dreams come true. Can we count on you to be part of this year’s event?

Stay tuned for our exciting announcements (and pictures) of what these Rotary Dream Auction donations will be going towards in our community!!!! A BIG shout out and BIG thank you to our amazing donors and Dream Auction bidders; who made the 2021 on-line Dream Auction a huge success!!
In the past years: we have used your funds to feed children in the North Okanagan through the Starfish Program; built waterparks, skateboard parks and bike trails; funded hospital towers and Homes for Humanity; provided needed kitchens and transportation for those in need and supported countless other important projects.
Internationally, we have helped to provide clean water and jobs in Haiti; built schools in Nepal and Ethiopia and rebuilt communities after natural disasters (just to name a few).
Today, the world has changed – a lot! What was once a lecture from your parents to wash your hands, is now a must. The stress and strain on families juggling priorities within a pandemic is growing. Visits with seniors continues to be intermittent or restricted and large social gatherings have once again been altered.
Although in-person gatherings may be limited, online connections are not. So we are embracing technology and heading virtual with our Auction this year! Everyone can register and follow our fabulous auction items as they are introduced here on this page.
