Orange County’s new vehicle dealers own the OC Auto Show and since 2010 we have partnered with OC schools and teams to help local kids raise over $500,000 selling tickets to the show! Orange County’s dealerships donate Auto Show tickets that students can sell to friends and family and keep 100% of the ticket price for your not-for-profit student group!
1. Pick up physical tickets to sell
Most fundraising groups raise the majority of funds by selling physical tickets. Visit one of our pick up locations to leave a security deposit check or credit card in exchange for numbered physical tickets with a cash value. Your deposit check or credit card will not be charged unless unsold tickets are not returned to us. (We have never had to keep a deposit!)
2. Use physical ticket order forms
Students take orders from friends and family and collect funds. You collect student order forms/cash and pick up the physical tickets on September 23, 2022 for students to distribute prior to the Auto Show.
3. Sell E-tickets
We provide your team with a custom link to sell tickets. Friends and family can pay by credit card to get their e-tickets for the Auto Show and input a student's name who is credited with the sale. You will get weekly sales reports.
July 25 - Sep 23 : Tickets available to sell
September 23: Return any unsold physical tickets
Sep.29 - Oct. 2: OC Auto Show | Anaheim Convention Center

“The OC Auto Show fundraiser helped us raise much-needed funds that went directly to our specific program. It’s really quite an effective and easy-to-implement fundraising tool and we were quite impressed that we received 100 percent of the proceeds, not a fraction as with many other fundraisers. We’ve been able to bring in additional guest speakers, fund extra field trips and supplement our equipment.”
Aaron Orullian, Director Film & Television Conservatory
“We were able to purchase new wrestling singlets for our entire team. This fundraiser is so easy to use and allows the kids to choose how they want to sell the tickets, in person or via the website or social media. We have set the bar higher this year and hope to raise at least $4,000.”
