Picnic Fundraiser will feature terrific Auction Items

The 2019 OPA All-Star Picnic and Fundraiser will be a special celebration of our 90th anniversary as an organization. In addition to some all-star readers, we'll have some past presidents join us and share their words along with a special edition of our yearly open-mic. We don't want to give away the details, but let's just say that those who want to read should be ready to pass the baton.

For our fundraising efforts, we'll have both live and silent auctions with some delicious--though not always nutritious--baskets up for grabs. The highlight of the afternoon auctions will be a live bidding on a Sun & Moon Poetry Festival package. Check out all the auction item details below then join us for the OPA picnic on July 13 at Antrim Park in Columbus (details here).

Our sincerest thanks to the auction sponsors: Gramercy Books, Full/Crescent Press, Andy Barr, Susann Moeller, Stephanie Harrell, and Jim Daniels.
