Peart Family Memorial Fund Auction

A bidding auction with amazing items donated by so many generous friends, family, & fans!

Members of Neil's Family (his parents, Betty & Glen, and sister, Nancy and her family) have all had to use the services at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie, Ontario and are active supporters of the RVH Foundation. With offers of so many amazing items, they decided that setting up a silent auction in support of the foundation is the perfect way to honour Neil's memory. We are so thankful to all of the amazing people who are donating items. We can keep this auction going as long as items keep coming in.

We will set up deadlines for each item so that we will always have something live to bid on. You are also welcome to donate what you can if you just want to send a donation. No amount is too small! The RVH Foundation will issue receipts for any donations over $20.

Thank you to everyone for your donations, both in items and in bidding! Enjoy and I wish everyone luck to get the items they love and to support this amazing cause!

The items up for auction include a copy of the Modern Drummer Neil Peart tribute issue signed by Neil's parents, a copy of the Permanent Waves box set including a handwritten note from Neil's parents, and many more unique items.
