All proceeds go to the Oakwood Restoration Fund.

We will honor Russell Sage College as an Organization of Excellence, in recognition of their centennial, their brilliant leadership and their commitment to excellence in education.

Entries submitted for our 2nd Annual Photo Contest will be on display and the top 3 winners will be there as our guests. See our wonderful cemetery from their fascinating perspectives.

Join your friends for an evening of food and fun. Come and help support Oakwood’s restoration as we continue to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Earl Chapel.
