Dear Friend of Oakland Leaf,

Our Love in Action celebration Tuesday evening was a huge success. We met and exceeded our fundraising goal. Between ticket sales, sponsorships, donations, and auction sales, we raised over $120,000 for our afterschool and youth internship programs.

It was incredibly moving to see board and staff members, long-time donors and volunteers, former staff members, and newcomers to our Oakland Leaf family all in one space. We are so grateful to our community for all the ways you helped to make our first in-person event in years such a lovely experience.

We are fueled by your belief in us and we are excited to keep you all updated about the impact your investments are making on our programs, and in the lives of our students.
