Auction Committee Volunteers

We are seeking a co-chair for the Oya No Kai annual auction. This board member would assist our current chair, Victoria Winkle, in managing the biggest fundraiser of the year.

We are also looking for committee volunteers to help with all aspects of event planning, from auction item procurement to event logistics. The 2024 auction will be our 35th anniversary of hosting this event, and we’d like to pull out all the stops, and this means we need your help! Come be a part of the team.

Please contact auction@oyanokai.org if you are interested in either of these opportunities.
