Online Art Auction A Success!
Apr 25, 2022
Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame Inductee Vern Stenlund and his sister Carol Kajorinne kindly offered to host an online art auction featuring over 50 of their original paintings as a fundraising project in support of the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame. Included amongst the works was a #4 jersey image signed by Bobby Orr.
The auction was held online from April 8th to April 23rd and a reception was held at the NWOSHOF on the closing night for the artists and their family and friends to watch the final bids come in. Close to $11,000 was raised through their fundraising project which will go towards helping to preserve and honour the regions sports heritage through the operation of the Sports Hall of Fame.
Thank you to Vern and Carol and everyone who made this an enjoyable and successful event.
