2019 owatonna eagles 57TH cancer auction
FEBRUARY 1 & 2, 2019
ABOUT OUR EVENT...
Let's face it. Cancer sucks. It does not care if you are rich or poor, young or old, male or female, or where you were born. It has directly or indirectly touched most of us and we all desire for a cure to be found.
This is our 57th year holding the Cancer Auction. The two-day event features live auctions of new donated items, gift cards or certificates, gift baskets, event tickets, experiences, and merchandise. This year's auction will take place on Friday, February 1, 2019 beginning at 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday, February 2, 2019, beginning at 4:00 p.m.
Its success continues to grow year-after-year because of your generosity. Whether you donate items to the auction, come down to bid on items, or come down for dinner and beverages, your support makes our fundraising efforts possible! With the generosity, support, and donations from our 2018 partners, we were able to raise more than $42,000 during the two-day auction.
We invite you to join us for the Owatonna Eagles 57th Annual Cancer Auction where we will work together to raise money and awareness to help fund research to fight cancer.
