Oakland Promise

On November 10, 2016, the city of Oakland will host the 2nd Annual Party for the Promise at the Historic Fox Theater. 

Today, of every 100 Oakland students who start high school, only 10 will graduate from college within five years. In my first year as Mayor, I made a bold promise to triple the number of college graduates from Oakland within a decade. Our vision is that every child in this community has the opportunity to graduate high school, complete college and pursue the career of his or her dreams.

Join us for an incredible evening of dinner, live auction, and concert with Oakland-grown entertainment:

  • Goapele
  • D'Wayne Wiggins
  • Lenny Williams
  • Juan Escovedo
  • Fungo Mung
  • ...and dance party with DJ Hammer

Help make the promise a reality.
