Cocktail Bird Auction
Entries from the very popular Cocktail Bird Contest are auctioned Saturday night.
Collectors love this part of the auction because the entries are highly detailed and beautiful! And they take up very little shelf space.
The contest requires that the cocktail bird must fit in a cocktail-sized glass.
All of the entries become property of the ODCCA and will be auctioned Saturday evening. The auction proceeds are split with 50% to the carver and 50% to benefit ODCCA.
