Oaks Christian School (“OCS”) an independent college preparatory school for students in grades 6th through 12th, will be hosting its 10th annual dinner auction, “Legacy: Yesterday, Today and Forever” with award-winning journalist emcee, Fred Roggin, comedy by the legendary Sinbad, and musical entertainment by multiple Grammy-award winning artist, Jimmy Jam. The event will take place on Saturday, April 9 at the OCS campus in Westlake Village, California with all proceeds funding OCS’ distinguished financial aid program.
The annual OCS celebration brings parents, friends, and members of the community together to support the school’s financial aid program. Since its founding in 2000, OCS and its generous donors have been providing financial aid to students and their families which currently funds tuition for approximately 40% of the student body.
“The OCS legacy of offering excellent academic, artistic and athletic opportunities for all students, regardless of financial ability, is what we are celebrating as we look back over the past 10 years and look forward to many more,” said Jeff Woodcock, Headmaster, Oaks Christian School. “We are very proud of our financial aid program and are committed to ensuring an OCS education is attainable.”
Guests will be treated to an evening of wonderful food and entertainment with sports journalist, Fred Roggin, emceeing the festivities. OCS is also pleased to present the hilarious repartee of comedian, Sinbad and the melodious compositions of musician and OCS parent, Jimmy Jam. New this year, OCS is offering an online eBay-style silent auction (http://www.biddingforgood.com/oakschristian) beginning 10-days in advance of the event allowing family and friends outside of the local area to participate. A live auction will also take place during the event. In addition, OCS wishes to thank all of its sponsors, underwriters, donors and volunteers to whom the school is very grateful.
Setting its sights high, OCS hopes to surpass last year’s record of over 900 attendees and approximately $800,000 in fundraising.
