Every year Odyssey Con hosts an art auction for charity. Dealers, artists, and patrons of the convention donate items to help raise money, from which all proceeds go to support a non-profit charity chosen by the Odyssey Con committee.
The Art Auction is generally held Saturday afternoon. Bidders are welcome to place bids on items beforehand. Attendance at the end of the auction is not necessary to win, but does help insure that you are able to get in the highest bid. Payment of the winning bid must be made before the piece is picked up by the winner.
