The Hyacks Football Tailgate Auction
is our only major fundraising event for the year!

What sets our event apart is our high energy, fun and friendly atmosphere, where Hyacks guests mix, mingle and network together with long time fans, sponsors and friends.  We made our gala the place to be with a complimentary wine and beer tasting reception hosted by Pacific Breeze Winery and Steel & Oak Brewery in the River Market atrium. We had music, exciting prizes, lively bidding wars and fun contests. Supporting a good cause had never been so entertaining!

How you can help

Hyacks Football Tailgate Auction - auctioneer Peter Adamo - Alan Wardle photoYour generosity is what makes our major fundraiser of the year such a huge success.

Your cash sponsorships and donated prizes for the live and silent fundraising auction are gifts that we appreciate so much. 100% of funds raised are directed toward equipment, transportation, training and clinics – ensuring that every child, regardless of financial situation, gets to play football in New Westminster – whether it’s the New Westminster Secondary School team for players aged 14-18 or the Royal City Hyacks Football Club for boys and girls aged 5-13.

Come out and see how your gifts of funds, products, services or time help youth in action at Mercer Stadium. Check the Varsity and JV game schedules.

Do you own or work for a business that you would like to promote to the Hyack community? If so, we invite you to join other generous donors by providing an auction item from your company or organization to the Hyack Football  Tailgate Auction.  The auctioneer will provide great advertising for your business to an attentive audience! We’ll list your company in our auction catalogue – giving you an excellent opportunity to promote your company (as well as your auction item!).  Last year we had over 200 community leaders, businesses and organizations donate prizes worth over $30,000.
