Accepting donations for Silent Auction fundraiser


CLPNA invites you to support the Annual Silent Auction on April 30 at our upcoming 2015 AGM & Conference.

In previous years, many individuals, organizations and businesses have generously donated various items such as gift certificates, gift baskets, electronics, trips, resort stays, clothing items, spa days, household goods, garden/yard accessories, jewellery, sports/theatre tickets and handcrafted items.

Your contribution will support Licensed Practical Nurses in post-secondary educational training as all proceeds go to the Frederickson-McGregor Education Foundation for LPNs.
