Thank you for helping us exceed our goal!

Thank you to all who supported and celebrated OPDC's work at the Evening of Oakland Storytelling: Views of Oakland. We had an amazing time and hope you did too.

We are thrilled to announce that, with your support, we exceeded our goal to furnish the kitchen of an Oakland Community Land Trust home for a low- to moderate-income family. We set the goal to raise $1,850 - the average amount it costs us to furnish one kitchen with the necessary appliances. Together, we raised over $2,000! Thank you for your generosity!

Special thanks to the partners who made this event possible. Venue provided by The Oaklander Hotel, food and cocktail by our venue's signature restaurant, Spirits and Tales, and event design by Thommy Conroy and 4121 Main. Thanks also to our host committee, sponsors, storytellers, and talented emcee, Dave Mansueto.
