Please join us for our biggest fundraising event of the year! Some highlights of the Staszak Annual Gala:
  • LAUGH: The wonderfully funny Mark Bazer, syndicated columnist, host of "The Interview Show" and Oak Park dad, will be our emcee.
  • LEARN: We will introduce OPEF's next exciting, innovative program resulting from the Call for Ideas process.
  • CONNECT: Mix and mingle with other great supporters of Oak Park public education -- parents, teachers, administrators and engaged community members. The open bar will help!
  • SUPPORT: Unique and interesting live and silent auction items will entice you to bid. We will be featuring one-of-a-kind vacation homes, sports and show tickets, food and wine, behind-the-scenes tours, and much more. This year's raffle ticket buys a chance to win an Instant Wine Cellar, 24 bottles of wines selected by certified sommelier Andy Kohn!
There will also be a tribute to former OPEF board member Peter Traczyk.

Please RSVP below. Can't come? Buy a raffle ticket or three, or make a donation. All proceeds support OPEF's free in-school programs and BASE Camp scholarships.
