Relief Sale Virtual Auction Tour

If it has been a long time since you have been at the MCCS Relief Sale in Saskatoon, or if you have never attended at all, this page gives you a chance to look around, and with some imagination, experience the Sale virtually.

This is also an opportunity to run into many friends and acquaintances, and to stop to chat a while with them.

The auctioneer donating his services again, was Richard Mierau. The first auction item was 50 zwiebac (buns) in a basket. Edith Krahn, part of the sale leadership team, baked them and brought them almost still warm from the oven. They sold for $2,100. Thank you!
