Illuminate the Season's Online Auction runs from Thursday, November 18th at 8:00PM until Sunday, November 21st at 8:00PM

Illuminate the Season is an event hosted by the Machine Shop that celebrates the magic of the season, showcasing the creativity of local artisans and festive décor, while raising funds to support local charities. Proceeds from this event go directly to ARCH Hospice, which provides end-of-life care.  

Our online auction is hosted by SooToday, where viewers can bid and vote on their favourite trees, wreaths and auction bundles from our local businesses.  Browse and bid on the items below.  Items will be available for pickup at the Machine Shop on Monday and Tuesday from 9AM to 6PM!

** Please note: Auction items will be added throughout November 18th / November 19th - be sure to check back often! **

Please READ THE RULES, particularly the part about credit card authorizations. In short, each time you place a bid, the system places a hold authorization for that amount on your card. When you are outbid, the hold is released. If you bid $50 on ten different items, this means $500 of your available balance will be unavailable until you're outbid. Any winning bids at the end of the auction are captured - meaning your card is charged. Buy Now items will be charged to your credit card at the time of purchase. We recommend you use a credit card, not a debit card for this auction. A released hold may take several days to reflect on your statement.

What happens if I win?
After the auction closes, if you have won an item, you will receive a confirmation email, which will contain pick up instructions. For any auction related questions, please email
