The OGR Foundation will hold its 2020 Silent Auction at the Annual Conference in Asheville, NC on Tuesday, April 21 during the Solution Center. The proceeds from the auction will be used to fund scholarships for mortuary science students graduating in 2020 and other charitable endeavors. Thanks to generous donations from members and partners, the Foundation was able to offer a $1,000, $2,000 and $3,500 scholarship in 2019 and pay expenses for the top scholarship winner to network with potential mentors and/or employers at OGR’s Annual Conference. The fund also is offering a travel reimbursement scholarship for first-time attendees at the 2020 Annual Conference & Solution Center.

The Foundation is accepting the following types of items for donation: gift baskets; gift certificates to nationwide restaurants; overnight packages at hotels; electronics such as iPads or Kindles; airline ticket vouchers; event tickets to nationwide theater or movies; jewelry or handbags; wine, spirits or gourmet food; timeshare vacations; art and memorabilia; and funeral service related products. Submissions are due April 3, 2020.
