All Canadian Self-Storage, which operates five facilities in the Greater Toronto area, will host a fundraising event benefiting children on June 22 at its facility on Dalkeith Drive in Brantford, Ontario. Dubbed “For the Kids Charity Bids,” the auction-style event will be produced by local online networking group In Sync Brant, with proceeds going to support Lansdowne Children's Centre, Nova Vita Domestic Violence Prevention Services and the Brantford Food Bank, according to the source.
The fundraiser will feature “mystery” storage units up for auction as well as a community garage sale, artisan and business vendors, food, and entertainment.
"We decided to do our own version of ‘Storage Wars,’" organizer Valerie Wilson said. "We have more than 260 members representing the small- to medium-sized businesses that help grow our community. This is a chance for our members and others in the community to join us in giving back."
Self-storage owner Dan McGuin approached In Sync Brant about hosting the event. "When [he] suggested it, we knew it was the perfect location to capture the community's support," Wilson said.
All Canadian Self-Storage operates facilities in Brantford, Etobicoke, Scarborough and Toronto. The company also offers mobile- and trailer-storage services.
