OPEF’s 16th annual William C. Staszak Award Dinner was our most successful fundraiser ever, netting more than $55,000 to fund VEX Robotics, Geared Up, Art Start, Global Village and Architecture Adventure in the District 97 public schools.
The evening honored Jan Pate, CEO of the West Cook YMCA and Trustee of the Village of Oak Park. OPEF also named Fly Bird, with owner Julian Nash, as our Business Partner of the Year. The wildly popular live auction was hosted by award-winning filmmaker, artist, attorney and Oak Park dad Mike Cramer.
