OTB Jean Jacket Auction Launch for Charity
Nov 14 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Not all super heroes wear capes, which is why we launched our OTB jean jackets. We designed them with the hopes that when it’s on your shoulders, you feel powerful and protected by what the symbols represent. And you’re reminded of the hero you have inside you.

To celebrate our company’s exciting launch, we’ve invited 20 local and nationally-known artists to design OTB jackets, all of which will be auctioned off in support of our giving partner, Give Her Camp.

When you bid on or purchase one of these exclusive artist-designed jean jackets, you’re getting a completely one-of-a-kind masterpiece for yourself or someone very special. And you’re helping send deserving women on a weekend-long life-enhancing Campowerment retreat.
