OLLI at GSC Announces First State-Wide Online Auction Fundraiser

OLLI at Granite State College is a member-led, educational program with sites in the greater Concord, Conway, Manchester, and Seacoast regions that provides intellectually and socially stimulating, “learning for the fun-of-it” opportunities for residents age 50+.

There are no prerequisites or grades. All you need is a genuine passion for learning. There are 117 OLLIs in colleges and universities across the country, all of which celebrate a commitment to lifelong learning and “learning for the fun of it.”

Under the direction of an OLLI member-volunteer and antique dealer, volunteers from four corners of the state, including Portsmouth, have been soliciting donations from members and merchants. Donated items range from New England Patriots tickets and coffee with the Governor to antiques, hand-crafted afghans, and everything in-between.

OLLI at Granite State College will hold the auction from October 28th through November 10th. Volunteers and staff invite you to check it out here.

This statewide online auction fundraiser will enhance the OLLI scholarship program, support program sustainability, and help the OLLI to reach new members.
