2020 Historic Odessa Foundation Holiday Silent Auction

All proceeds from the auction will be used to support educational programming for children and families. The museum offers free organized learning opportunities for school and families all year long.

The pandemic has affected all of us on so many varied levels and the unforeseen impact of the virus has made 2020 a truly lean year for the Historic Odessa Foundation. As a result we have worked to find new and creative ways to bring entertaining, educational experiences to all of our audiences.

This silent auction will provide the necessary funding to continue this important work.
