Bidding has begun in online wreath auction for Quesnel and District Hospice Palliative Care Association

Moose Meadows Farm has designed and created six unique “Crazy Co-Vid New Year Wreaths”

Bidding has officially begun in a five-day online auction meant to help end 2020 in fun fashion and support an important cause.

Moose Meadows Farm has partnered with the Quesnel and District Hospice Palliative Care Association (QDHPCA) for a Crazy COVID New Year Wreath Auction.

“Kick 2020 to the curb and bring 2021 in with a “Crazy Co-Vid New Year Wreath,” states the auction event page. “2020 has been a little unusual; the new year is a time to celebrate the past year while looking forward. One way to make your new year more memorable is by having a Crazy Co-vid Wreath to adorn your door!”

Moose Meadows Farm has designed and created six unique wreaths, which each have a one-of-a-kind “crazy but classy” new year theme. For the online auction, photos of the wreaths are posted on Facebook, and bids can be placed online through the Crazy Co-vid New Year Wreath Fundraiser for Quesnel & District Hospice Palliative Care Association (ONLINE) Facebook event page.

The auction opened at noon on Boxing Day, and it will continue until 6 p.m. on Dec. 30.

All proceeds from this online auction go to the QDHPCA, which offers compassionate support and resources to those who are dealing with death, dying and grief.

“The reason we decided to choose the QDHPCA when we decided to offer this fundraiser was simply because of the important work they do and the service they offer, and it seemed a good fit at Christmas time,” said Moose Meadows Farm co-owner Heloise Dixon-Warren.

There are six wreaths in total, and each wreath is posted individually and marked with a name and number.

The minimum bid per wreath is $50, with increments of a minimum of $5.

Bids must be placed under posts of the individual wreath photos as a comment.

The auction will close Wednesday, Dec. 30 at 6 p.m. The purchaser will be the individual with the highest bid, and Facebook time stamps will be used to determine the top bid if necessary.

The highest bidders will be contacted following the closing of the auction. Payment for the wreaths can be made by email transfer to Moose Meadows Farm at or by cash or credit card at the Bouchie Lake Country Store at 2338 Bonny Rd. The wreaths will be available for pick up at the Bouchie Lake Country Store Dec. 31 starting at 11 a.m.

This is the 19th year Moose Meadows Farm has been in the business of making wreaths. All of the wreaths are made of subalpine fir and western red cedar collected from the forests of the North Cariboo, and Moose Meadows Farm says they will last well into the new year in our cool North Cariboo climate.Di
