Information coming soon!
Bookmark this page so you don’t miss out on the fun!

For more than 50 years, Ocean View has enjoyed a sense of togetherness with our local community.

This is so important because we know that the seniors we serve are relying on us all – staff, volunteers, and community – to join together and help them feel surrounded by a sense of community as they age!

We especially feel this in our hearts at this time of year as we approach Valentines Day! Love is in the air, and we want our seniors to feel that love lifting them up and brightening their days!

We want to offer our thanks to the businesses in our community, big and small, that have donated the wonderful items you will see as you look through this silent auction! By donating these amazing items, they are lending their support to those we serve. We are so thankful for their generosity, and for the opportunity to celebrate the many exciting businesses in our local community!

Now it’s your opportunity to give the gift of your support to those we serve, and perhaps score an amazing gift for Valentines Day, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, or just for yourself! We invite you to bid on any of these wonderful items, and to feel good doing so!

Your support will help us check things off of Ocean View’s 2022 wish list for those we serve!
