AOD has a tradition of raising money for charity through its Charity Auctions. Over the last several years, our donors have provided consoles, posters, artwork, video games, music, autographs, recordings, and coaching sessions, all with the intent of helping out our charitable causes.

As always, 100% of proceeds from the Charity Auction are donated directly to our beneficiaries.

Featured Items

Last year, Sega of America donated an extremely rare collector's statue. This was originally issued for the 10th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. Only 500 of these were ever made. Sega of America kept 5 of them. We auctioned one of these from last year. This year, they are generously donating another Sonic statue for the AOD Charity Auction. This is a mint condition figure, still in its original box. Because they were only created in a limited quantity, they are extremely rare to even see available for auction, but you will be able to bid on this at AOD.

This is an extremely rare Happy Tree Friends display item, featuring Nutty the squirrel, and Flippy the bear. As the label indicates, there were only 480 of these items produced, and they were exclusively available at San Diego Comic-Con 2007.
This item autographed by Happy Tree Friends Story Editor and Writer Ken Pontac and Director Kenn Navarro. Because of the exclusive and limited run, this item is normally very difficult to obtain without the use of time travel, but we can feature this here at AOD.

Also from Sega of America, we have a Sonic Ring! More precisely, we have a Sonic 10th Anniversary Collector’s Silver Ring. Highly limited and individually numbered, these silver rings were sold in 2001 as collector’s items to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. This is ring #386.

Coming back for their fourth year, we are bring back mystery packs. In previous years, some of the mysteries have been video games, collectables, and bacon. What will be in this year's mystery packs? Candy? More Video Games? Chocolate? Cash? The only way to know for sure it to make a bid!

Are you a fan of Sega, but cannot go for the exclusive items? Do you like coffee or tea? We have the item for you. This metallic blue SEGA thermal mug was a Christmas Gift to employees in the mid 2000’s. For the SEGA collector who wants a piece of exclusive merchandise, or for anyone looking for a shiny way to safely drink some hot chocolate in the winter months.

This is Ken Pontac. Man. Guest. Legend.
If you know him from his work on Happy Tree Friends, from his writing panels, or from his championship at Cards Against Humanity, this prize is a special treat. This item is for either a lunch date with Ken, or (if you're over 21) a karaoke session at Mint in SF. Unique cannot begin to describe this item. Bid now for what should be an amazing experience.
