Annual Gala & Auction

Mark Your Calendars - We're Staying "in" This Year!
O'Connell is Going Virtual with our First Ever...

No-Go Gala & Auction
Saturday, January 23, 2021

Contact Laura Friel for more information

Our Annual Gala & Auction is a festive showcase of everything that makes O'Connell such a special place. This year, instead of our traditional dinner, dance and auction, we'll celebrate O'Connell from the comfort of our own homes - virtually. 

Think telethon meets highlight reel meets O'Connell...

We'll need lots of help pulling it all together and if you'd like to volunteer as a committee member or auction ambassador, please contact Laura Friel to get started. We have lots of great ideas - but we need YOU to make them a reality. The committee will meet periodically via Zoom based around members' schedules. It couldn't be easier to participate!
