An afternoon creating opportunities for our neighbors with Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach
Sunday April 3, 2022
The Charleston Marriott
For 25 years, OLMCOS' annual Love Your Neighbor Auction has been, and continues to be, the organization's largest fundraiser and an extraordinary afternoon of community partnership.
Last year, supporters raised over $146,000 during our first virtual auction, which enabled us to help thousands of individuals and families lessen their burdens and provide a place to turn when life’s obstacles were too much to bear on their own. Now, we are planning to gather together again for our 25th annual Love Your Neighbor Auction.
All proceeds from the auction will go directly to Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach’s mission to build equitable communities and empower individuals to reach their full potential by providing basic and emergency needs, education, employment and health services.
We invite you to join us and be a part of long-lasting change. Because it is our responsibility to build up the communities where we live, work and play.
