Thank You for Your Support

by Kaveh Kashef
2016-2017 OCBF President







The Foundation hosted its 18th annual Signature Event fundraiser Friday, April, 28, 2017, at the beautiful Oakland Hills Country Club. The weather could not have been nicer, and if you were one of the more than 500 people in attendance, you probably spent at least some time out on the patio enjoying the view! Please click here to see the photos from the 18th annual event.

Immediate Past President Chuck Moore and Trustee David Plunkett co-chaired this year’s event. It garnered net proceeds of more than $227,000.00, which will fund grant requests in 2017-2018. This year 114 sponsors signed on to support the Foundation’s mission, many of which have done so for five or more consecutive years! We cannot thank you enough! The list of sponsors is below. 

Because of your generosity, legal support will be provided to disadvantaged Oakland County citizens who otherwise would be unable to access it, and numerous programs focusing on civic and legal education for Oakland County residents of all ages can be funded. The board of trustees and I extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you.
