Prizes include experience packages, jewelry, OLSH-themed items, sports memorabilia, and more. The Ticket Auction allows guests to purchase tickets ($25 for a sheet) to drop in bags for a chance to win a variety of prizes, like theme packages and unique items. In addition to the auctions, there are small games of chance, where guests can pay $5-10 for a chance to win a prize. There are opportunities for guests to get involved at a variety of levels!
What happens with money raised at the Gala?

Also during the evening we recognize a member of the OLSH Community with the annual Legacy Award. Created in 2009, the Legacy Award recognizes individuals, couples or groups who have helped to preserve the legacy of OLSH.
