17th Annual Oaks Christian Dinner Gala

Over 800 Oaks Christian School (OCS) guests gathered to celebrate the 17th Annual Gala Dinner Auction on April 6, setting a historic attendance record for the event, returning for the second year to the Reagan Library in Simi Valley. This year’s event was especially prestigious with George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States, and First Lady Laura Bush attending as special guests.

The evening’s festivities began with a silent auction and a collection of performances from the OC Voices a cappella group and OCS parent Paul Anka and a premier of the “Mark This Moment” video. The Bushes took the stage for a wide-ranging conversation, which was the highlight of the gala. The evening culminated in a live auction with amazing prizes, and the highest bid of the evening went to “Barrett,” an 8-week-old golden doodle.
