On Saturday September 23, 2017 enjoy an exceptional evening at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s Sky’s the Limit Charity Auction.

Monies raised will go to two deserving organizations—first, the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, a non-profit organization whose mandate is to acquire, document, preserve and maintain a complete collection of aircraft that were flown by Canadians and the Canadian military from the beginning of World War II to the present. Secondly, the ‘Help a Child Smile’, an organization focused on children with cancer treated at the Children's Hospital at Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation by providing opportunities for them and their families to smile and have fun.

The evening will feature a live auction where you have a chance to win a coveted tour of Jay Leno's Garage; an incredible collection of over 200 vehicles. His collection spans 100 years of automotive history. The collection also has a number of rare cars, such as a Monteverdi, a Bugatti Atlantic, and a turbine motorcycle.

In addition to a chance to win a tour of Jay Leno’s Garage which is not open to the public, attendees will be able to enjoy a silent auction, entertainment and more. “We are so excited to be able to offer this amazing opportunity to bid on a tour of Jay Leno’s Garage while bringing the community together and raising money for two local charities” said Bob Cowan, Honorary Chair.

Other unique items include tickets to the grand finale of next season's live taping of NBC’s "The Voice" in Los Angeles, the actual pistons used in the Lancaster’s flight across the Atlantic to England, other Second World War memorabilia, skiing vacations, VIP passes to the Rogers Cup Tennis Tournament and Woodbine Raceway, the chance to tour Niagara in exotic cars, and many more that will be announced shortly.

A number of celebrities and athletes and special entertainment are to be announced. The growing list of auction items will be updated regularly HERE shortly.

Dinner will be catered by Michelangelo's. Menu includes Artesian Breads and Rolls, Mixed Organic Greens with Citrus Vinaigrette Dressing, plated dinner of Prime Rib of Beef with Horseradish Cream accompanied by Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Seasonal Fall Vegetables. Dessert is a platter of Mini Assorted Sweets & Chocolate Dipped Strawberries.

This is a black tie/business attire event, with opportunities to partake in silent, live and online auctions for those that cannot attend.
