Proceeds support art in our communities through donations to the Algonquin Art Centre, Huntsville Art Society, Canadian Canoe Museum, Huntsville Festival of the Arts, Tom Thomson Gallery in Owen Sound and the Town of Huntsville’s reserved fund for future public art acquisition. Notice: Algonquin Outfitters has chosen to respect the indigenous culture and not profit from paddles with indigenous symbols. With respect to the artists' work and effort, a $100 donation will be made by Algonquin Outfitters for each of these paddles. To not allow bids in the auction, we've had to set the opening bid to $9,000,000. After the auction, the paddle will be returned to the artists.
