OPDC’s signature fundraiser brings together a diverse mix of residents and community partners who share our passion for equitable opportunity and development in Oakland. We are proud to serve one of Pittsburgh’s most vibrant neighborhoods for the 39th year and are grateful to work alongside an amazing community of neighbors, partners, and volunteers. Join us on Friday, June 7th for a celebration of Oakland and the people that make our work possible.

An Evening of Oakland Storytelling features a unique program of live Oakland-related stories supported by Kelly Flanagan Dee, producer of The Moth in Pittsburgh. This year’s generous event venue sponsor is The Oaklander Hotel. Guests will enjoy breathtaking views from the hotel’s unique top floor space, delicious food and cocktails designed by Chef Jessica Lewis, and an opportunity to connect with friends and neighbors. All event proceeds support OPDC’s programs to improve the lives of Oakland community members ... Stay tuned for additional details.

This year, we will explore different views of Oakland, both through the diverse perspectives of our storytellers and scenic views from The Oaklander’s tenth floor event space.
