On Saturday, April 11, at the Oak Park Country Club, the Oak Park Education Foundation will host the William C. Staszak Annual Gala starting at 7 pm. Some highlights of the evening:

  • 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.

All proceeds will benefit OPEF free in-school programs and BASE Camp scholarships. Tickets to the Staszak Gala are $150 each.
