Getting groovy at OMCA's Golden Gala

Topic: 

On Saturday, May 19, 2012, OMCA set the stage for a dazzling and magical night inspired by the 60s and the special traveling exhibition The 1968 Exhibit. Guests came decked to the nines in funky 60s attire and got groovy with a live auction and dinner with rad retro flair by Barbara Llewellyn Catering.   The night ended with Gala guests getting their groove on to Wall Street, one
of the Bay Area's hottest dance bands . All proceeds from the evening benefit Oakland Museum
of California's education programs.
