Run.Walk.Roll Silent Auction:
The Silent Auction has become a popular part of the Operation Giveback Run.Walk.Roll Event. Last year there were over forty items up for auction which raised over $3,000. We receive donations from businesses, members and supporters, as well as many artists who donate their own artwork.
We are again asking for your donations. Some popular items have included art, pottery, jewelry, gift certificates to restaurants, massage, skin care, tattoo parlors, stores, tours (kayaking, canoeing, biking); tickets to music and sporting events (UCF Football games); or weekend beach getaways to destinations such as Puerto Rico. If you wish to donate an item, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're interested in bidding on items, check out the silent auction table at the 4th Annual Operation Giveback 5K/15K Run.Walk.Roll and Warrior Kids Race on Saturday, May 10th! Silent Auction Funds raised benefit and help us to rally support for our Wounded Warrior Service Members, their families, and the children of our fallen heroes.
Check out the Kids Zone:
The 4th Annual Operation Giveback 5K/15K Run.Walk.Roll and Warrior Kids Race has been designed as a family fun experience. The Kids Zone is provided free to the kids so they can enjoy Bounce Houses and many games donated by Home Depot. From the inaugural race, Home Depot has chosen to partner with OGB as the main sponsor of the Kids Zone. Parents: bring your kids to the event for a fun time for all.
