51Oakland Presents a Benefit for Oakland School for the Arts
April 22, 2013
The Find Your Voice Experience
Entry fee $35 (includes dinner)
Minimum suggested donation $250
Oakland School for the Arts (OSA) provides an immersive arts program with a comprehensive academic curriculum, preparing students to lead with imagination, vision and ingenuity. OSA students succeed; 96% of OSA's hardworking alumni have been admitted into colleges and universities.
OSA serves as a model in the worlds of arts, education and community development for how the arts can play a transformative role. OSA, in partnership with numerous businesses, schools and arts organizations, demonstrates how communities can come together to build healthy and vibrant urban centers. Our students and faculty consistently challenge the boundaries of what can be achieved in academics, the arts and today's global community.
OSA, a public charter school, serves over 600 students in grades 6-12. There are no tuition fees. State funding has decreased immensely over the past five years. Private supporters help bridge this gap. Contributions helps OSA provide an excellent education to students and to foster a vision of effective and inspirational learning through the arts in a public school.
Please join on us on April 22nd for our benefit to help keep arts education alive in Downtown Oakland. OSA thanks 51Oakland for sponsoring this very special event.
