PGC holds a silent auction, live, at our Tom Hendry Awards event as well as an online auction. This means that we can offer bidding opportunities not just to attendees of the ceremony, but to anyone interested in our exciting items!
About Our Auction
The Tom Hendry Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the talent of Canadian playwrights across the country. We offer cash prizes (in some cases, along with publishing opportunities and mentorships) to our recipients for the Carol Bolt, Stage West Pechet Family Musical, Stage West Pechet Family Comedy, TYA Award, and RBC Emerging Playwright awards.
This online auction coincides with our silent auction at our live event, meaning that we can offer bidding opportunities not just to attendees of the ceremony, but to anyone interested in our exciting items!
