April 6, 2018

Auction Flyer

The BOCA Auction is the organizations' largest fundraising event of the year! The student organizations's goal is to interact with and help communities in Buffalo and abroad with their dental needs. The money raised from this event helps fund participation in various Remote Area Medical [RAM] and BOCA-International events. For example, supplies required to participate in outreach events come from auction dollars.
