Heart of Oakland: Spring Benefit 2022

Thursday, April 28th

Doors open at 5:45 pm

Event starts at 6:00 pm

Heart of Oakland is an important event for our community to come together and support our creative youth. Experience the talent and heart at OSA during this night of impressive student performances, an exciting auction, and more! 
The theme for this year's Heart of Oakland is "Oakland Made". Thank you to our Visual Art students who created this year's artwork!
OSA has grown stronger with each year thanks to the support of the Oakland community, OSA families, arts advocates, and those who believe in the power of the arts in education. Join us on April 29th to keep the arts beating at OSA for many more years to come.
A portion of the proceeds raised from Heart of Oakland will go toward our Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) program for next school year.
