Please join us on July 29th at Toast Wine Lounge for a family-friendly and admission-free, 51Oakland Fundraiser & Silent Auction. The event, which is to be held both indoors and outdoors, will feature a barbecue menu, silent auction and live music! There will be a different live music act every hour, on the hour between 1 and 9 p.m.  

Confirmed talent to date includes Don Reed (Actor, Writer, Comedian), David Gans(Musician, Writer, Host of KPFA’s “Dead To The World” and Sirius XM’s “Tale From The Golden Road”), Jordan McConnell (Grammy-nominated Musician), Oakland Public School teachers and students, and more to be announced.

A percentage of all proceeds go to 51Oakland, to help ensure that all Oakland public school students have improved and consistent access to music and performing arts. Please join us!

51Oakland is currently collecting auction items for our July 29 fundraiser, and we respectfully request your support. Any donation is tax-deductible, and more importantly, will help ensure the accessibility of music and the performing arts to all Oakland public school students. Donors will be recognized through signage at the event entrance, on bid sheets, social networking sites and local publications, and announcements between performances. Thank you for your consideration!

About

51Oakland was established in 2011 by Yoshi Akiba, co-owner of the renowned musical venues, Yoshi’s Oakland and Yoshi’s San Francisco, and Jason Hofmann, a young Oakland-based entrepreneur and former educator who, within the last few years, has become increasingly involved in philanthropic activities benefitting youth.

51Oakland, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, is organized and operated solely to promote educational, artistic and musical opportunities for youth in the Oakland community. An advocate of the Oakland Unified School District, 51Oakland provides access to mentoring, nurturing and training by professional musicians and, later this year, will underwrite and organize a monthly concert series, “Live at Yoshi’s,” featuring Oakland’s finest youth talent.

51Oakland’s mission is to inspire student learning, hard work and self-esteem by strengthening the role of music and the arts in the Oakland public school system. 51Oakland’s commitment to supporting the educational and arts programs will foster a community that nurtures growth, creativity and self-expression for youth, and instills core values of a strong work ethic, discipline, teamwork and self-actualization.

About Don Reed’s East 14th
Don Reed (HBO, Cosby Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno) EAST 14TH chronicles the true tale of a young man raised in Oakland by his mother and ultra-strict stepfather as a middle class, straight A, God-fearing church boy. The boy, however, wanted to be just like his dear old Dad. Too bad he didn’t know dear old Dad was a pimp. And yet we find even the outlaws in our community have a moral compass that leads our most promising to higher ground and higher education. Very funny, definitely poignant — a ride down a street you won’t soon forget. The New Yorker – “Hilarious! The audience can’t stop laughing.” The San Francisco Chronicle described Reed as an “Irresistible presence,” and the East Bay Express declared the show ‘…Nothing short of amazing.” The show is a Double NAACP Theatre Award Nominee – Best Actor & Best Playwright — Best Bay Area Critics Circle Award Solo Performance nominee and was the longest running one man show in East Bay Area History. Visit East14th.com for backstory or themarsh.org to view his new ’80’s show The Kipling Hotel.
