This year’s Rotary gala, at the Rotunda on April 8, was filled with elegance, song, magic and emotion.
We enjoyed the upbeat tunes of Rick Baskin and friends, as well as impromptu duets from warblers supreme John Protopappas and Kim Cohn. We heard about our Club’s impact from former HOPE mentee Diane Garcia and saw a powerful video about Oakland 3’s service prepared by Rotarian filmmaker Chris Faber. Magician Dennis Kyriakos’s tricks had us scratching our heads. In addition to all the fun, we raised significant funds for future Oakland Rotary service projects.
Thank you to all who supported the event! You can watch Chris Faber's fantastic video below:
