New Canaan Restaurant Relief Online Auction: Bid and Donate Until May 23

New Canaan Restaurant Relief Online Auction, brainchild of resident Mike Peterson, is LIVE now through end of day on Saturday. Please consider supporting our local restaurants that have rallied to support our community during the pandemic. This will help our town #comebackstrong

Please read the information below about donating and bidding!

 The COVID-19 health crisis has had a tumultuous impact on the restaurant industry. Many had to implement significant layoffs, and some may end up having to close their doors for good.

The New Canaan community is eager to help our restaurants during this difficult time and has rallied together to launch the New Canaan Restaurant Relief Auction. Restaurants throughout our town and New Canaan residents have generously donated items for people to bid on, some of which can be used now and others in the future when full socialization is safe. 100% of the proceeds will go back to participating New Canaan restaurants. 

The auction concludes at 11:59PM EST on Saturday, May 23.
