Charity Auction

AOD has a tradition of raising money for charity through its Charity Auctions. Over the last several years, our donors have provided consoles, posters, artwork, video games, music, autographs, recordings, and coaching sessions, all with the intent of helping out our charitable causes.

The Charity Auction is on Sunday, March 19, 12:30, Live Events 2 (Seattle Room).
We will have a while variety of items, some small, some large. Come on down, and bid!
