This year, we welcome artist and journalist Dana King as our honorary chair. The evening will also feature jazz music from West Lake Middle School, an OFFTA-funded school.
We’ll be serving up the deliciously hand-crafted meal family-style — so sit back, relax, and let the food come to you. We will also have an amazing line-up of auction items for bid so check back here often for a list of our most exciting offerings!
By the way, if you are interested in donating an auction item to our event, fill out this form and email it to OaklandFundfortheArts@gmail.com or mail it by August 25 to to PO Box 29022, Oakland, CA 94604.
Oakland Fund for the Arts, a 501(c)3 organization, has awarded almost $500,000 for performance and visual art programs in under-served Oakland public schools since 1996.
Every dollar we raise, every child who participates in one of our funded programs, brings us closer to our goal to change the lives of every child in our community. We are changing the lives of thousands of Oakland public school kids every day by bringing hands-on arts education back to school. With your support, our efforts improve academic success, build self-esteem and enhance growth among Oakland’s most at-risk kids.
