2020 owatonna eagles 58TH cancer auction

FEBRUARY 7 & 8, 2020


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 58th 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 7, 2020 beginning at 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday, February 8, 2020, 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 58th Annual Cancer Auction where we will work together to raise money and awareness to help fund research to fight cancer. 

where does the money that is raised go?

The Owatonna Eagles belongs to the Eagles 5th District in Minnesota.  Money raised at our auction is presented annually in January to the Eagles 5th District Cancer Telethon https://www.eaglescancertelethon.org which takes place in Rochester, Minnesota.  Eagles Clubs in the 5th District have helped raise more than $1,000,000 for Cancer research in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019! 


Did you know that all of the Owatonna Eagles Cancer Auction Committee Members are volunteers and the auctioneers donate their time and services?  There are no salaries paid to anyone and 100% of the funds raised at our event remain in Minnesota and benefit three outstanding Cancer Research Institutions:
