Over the last 30 years, the event has grown and changed, but the main attraction continues to be the collection of fine artwork on display in the live and silent auction. In addition to art, the auction features holiday items, gift baskets, gift certificates, celebrity collectibles, trips, one-of-a-kind experiences and paper prayers. Great opportunity to find amazing works of art and great gifts, just as the holiday shopping season begins.

Last year, the Colby Olsen Foundation held their 1st Annual Thanksgiving Dinner with the anticipation of providing a space for displaced individuals within the Tucson community, and successfully fed over 200 people. This year 300+ individuals are anticipated!
