WHAT: Oak School will host its biennial fundraiser

WHEN: Saturday, April 13th 2024

WHERE: Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse in Oakbrook


This event will bring together 200+ parents, caregivers, and friends to support Oak School.


This year’s fundraiser is especially important, as we are

raising funds to replace our outdated playground.

The new playground will be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA-compliant”)

and will be more accessible to our students with disabilities.


Additionally, the funds raised at this year’s Benefit will help to support two years of Oak’s operating costs.

How can you help support this year’s Oak Benefit?
1. Buy your tickets now for the event through the GiveSmart website at:


Also consider purchasing an extra ticket or two for your favorite teachers.

2. Consider a personal donation from your family via a Sponsorship package. Don’t forget that Oak Elementary School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is eligible for company matches.

3. Consider a personal donation from your family via an Auction item. Auction “wish list” items include: rare bottles of liquor, airline miles/tickets, hotel stays or private home vacations, sports memorabilia/tickets, and private chef experiences.

Please reach out to the Benefit team with any questions or feedback at benefit@oakpto.org.
