The Penticton Fire Department donated rides to work or school in one of their fire trucks, the Mayor has donated a lunch for up to four people with him and the South Okanagan Events Centre has donated two tickets to the upcoming Alice Cooper show in April.

Weekend passes to Jazzfest, family ticket packs for the Scottish Festival, and even bagpipe lessons are some of the other items up for bidding.
