HOLLY NEAR CONCERT SOLD OUT, BUT …
Our May 4th concert featuring Holly Near and three other women musicians has sold out, but Oakmonters can still come to the “Before the Concert” party on the Berger Center patio from 5 to 7 p.m. Listen to a live band; enjoy Mexican fare from the El Coyote food truck; for a $20 donation, savor a bottle of “mystery wine” that could be worth much more; and bid on gift certificates from Oakmont businesses. All proceeds from our raffles and auctions that night go to the charity we raise money for: 10,000 Degrees.
Last year, 10,000 Degrees gave $3.6 million in college scholarships to over 2,000 students. A remarkable 80% of the students they assist finish college and earn a B.A. or B.S. degree. These are young people who would not otherwise go to college, and are the first in their families to do so.
GIFT CERTIFICATES FROM OAKMONT BUSINESSES
At the pre-concert party and silent auction, you can bid on gift certificates donated by businesses that operate right here in Oakmont. Get automobile services, dental X-rays and care, dry cleaning or alterations, haircuts from our local barber, a discount on a cruise from our travel agency, or food from the Oakmont deli.
AT THE SHOW
If you’re lucky enough to have a ticket to the concert, you’ll see a lot of great silent auction prizes. Want a family portrait from the Star Shots Photography studio? A gift certificate for dinner at Salt & Stone, Stark’s, Tips Roadside, Café Citti, or Sunday brunch at the Flamingo? Or vie for tickets to the Snoopy ice rink, Sixth Street Playhouse, Safari West, and a Chaka Kahn concert at the Green Music Center. Stays for as long as a full week at high-end vacation rentals will also be up for bid. During intermission, the live auction offers a weeklong vacation with Olivia at the new Hard Rock Resort in Cabo San Lucas. This annual ORW fundraiser is the party that keeps on giving.
