Charity

Each year, Otafest selects a local charitable cause for which to collect donations. You can help raise money by participating in Otafest’s Charity Auction, Angel Passes, Sketch Drive, Donation Collection Jars, Cards Against Otafest, & more!

Please help us reach our $5,000 goal to support local community and remember to attend closing ceremonies for our traditional fundraising announcement which includes some fun and (often embarrassing) games for our planning team!
