CSI East Bay-Oakland Chapter ended the year with its traditional yearly donation to a worthy cause, and a special donation to help support recovery efforts from a tragic event in Oakland.
East Bay-Oakland Chapter President Dan Galvez:
Dear East Bay Oakland Chapter Members,
We closed out 2016 with our Holiday Dinner at Scott’s, Jack London Square. We had a fine dinner with friends and loved ones. Our Silent Auction raised funds for the chapter’s annual donation to Rebuilding Together Oakland. In addition, this year the chapter made a special donation to help victims of the Oakland Warehouse Fire. Thanks to all who helped with the Silent Auction and those who donated and bid on items.
Thanks for your support of the East Bay Oakland Chapter.
