Thanks to the generosity of our community, the 2018 Auction has now raised a total of $502,000! Here are a few last neat notes for you:

  • Find your way to the auction webpage for all of the great pictures!

  • Last but certainly not least, thank you to all of the volunteers, donors, and sponsors who helped us make OES's enchanted auction dreams come true.
