Meet Our Guests

OCRCC Articles , , , , ,

Header with date 2014We are very excited for our upcoming 27th Annual Holiday Auction, which will be on Sunday, November 23, at the Sheraton. Our offices are overflowing with unique auction items that will be up for bid next Sunday — check out our auction page for a sneak preview of select items. With a silent and live auction, live music, dinner, our signature dessert auction, and more, it’s going to be a lot of fun — and all for a great cause.

In addition to all the usual excitement, this Auction falls during our 40th anniversary. We have a few surprises up our sleeves to commemorate 40 years of providing help, hope, and healing in our community: We will unveil special artwork commissioned by Durham artist and activist Franco, and we will debut an amazingly beautiful and inspiring video by Ora about the work we do.

We also can’t wait to meet this year’s Auction guests! New York Times Bestselling Author Sarah Dessen will be our keynote speaker, Ron Stutts of WCHL’s Morning Show will be our auctioneer, and Matt Phillips will provide live music. Read below for more information about our guests, and visit our auction page to purchase admission tickets and enter our drawing to win A Night on the Town.

Holiday Auction EventOur 26th Annual Holiday Auction was another huge success, thanks to you! Thank you for all your support for the Auction: attending the event, donating items, bidding on items, entering our drawing, and more.

We are so excited about the records you set this year! The Auction had over 320 community members in attendance and raised more than $93,000! We are blown away by your generosity. These extra funds will go a long way toward making up for the $60,000 loss we had in government funding this year. Thank you for providing help, hope, and healing to our community!
