Meta Centre is an innovative & highly successful not-for-profit social services agency, with over 30 years of experience providing services and quality care for approximately 600 adults, youths and children with special needs, in the GTA. Although there is much to celebrate as we continue to meet the growing demand for quality care, we have also been dealing with the additional pressures caused by the current pandemic; we need your help now more than ever.
The Meta Gala Fundraiser has become our signature event; however, this year, due to the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 risk in our community, we have decided to host this event virtually over the week of October 22-29. As we celebrate this event, the Virtual Meta Gala will raise funds to cover costs and provide resources to our staff and the people we support.
We’re excited to host our Online Auction as part of our 2021 Around the World Gala. Please note that this Auction is open to all community members! Our Auction will be open from Oct 22 at 9:00am and will close at 9:00pm on October 29th.
*When browsing the items, you will see regular bids and sealed bids. For the sealed bids, you can place only one bid without seeing any other bids. Winners for the sealed bids will be notified at the end of the auction. Make it your best bid!
All proceeds from the Auction will be donated to Meta! HAPPY BIDDING!!Go to Online Auction
