We want to give a heartfelt thank you to the Oakland Tech family for coming together at the Auction Gala! Both our theme and goal was to “Celebrate Community & Unity” and we absolutely accomplished that. It was such a pleasure to see parents, school teachers and staff, and even students come together to mingle, feast and dance together! We’ve had a lot of feedback about what a wonderful evening it was, and we want to remind everyone that it takes many, many volunteers to make the Oakland Tech auction happen. You should know that several volunteers spent 10+ hours on Saturday — and that’s in addition to the many, many hours of planning and preparation done in advance.
We want to give special thanks to our amazing auction team …

In addition, we have huge gratitude to those that took on volunteer shifts at the gala, ‘adopted’ a block for procurement, picked up donations, made phone calls, and the many other tasks that go into a successful event. Further, thanks to the student volunteers, many of whom are part of the OT Student Government Association, for taking an active role in the auction.
With deep gratitude,
Elizabeth Falkner & Jenny Berg
