The Special Event is Oakwood’s annual fundraising gala—a fun and festive event during which our community comes together to raise funds for a great cause. 

This year's Special Event will honor Headmaster Jim Astman, and will happen in May of 2019. All proceeds will go to the Charles & Emilie Haas Endowment Fund.

The 2018 Special Event, All Together Again, was even more special than most as we honored Elementary School Principal Margo Long for 38 years of dedicated leadership with a live stage show at the Theatre at Ace Hotel on May 19, 2018. We paid tribute to Margo's countless contributions with a program hosted by Adam Scott & Jason Schwartzman. In addition to a silent auction, live auction, and Text-to-Give segment that all raised money for the newly created Margo Long Fund for Financial Aid, the line-up included live musical numbers, a virtual-choir singalong, and even a Henson Studio-designed Margo muppet. 

Most importantly, ticket sales from the 2018’s All Together Again Special Event, along with auction donations, Family Album and event sponsorships raised an unprecedented amount—over $850,000—for the Margo Long Fund for Financial Aid, which helps to ensure the socioeconomic diversity of our school population.


In the weeks leading up to The 2018 Special Event, we shared personal stories from the Oakwood community about the many lives Margo Long enriched during her 38 years as Elementary School Principal. These stories have ranged from incredible encounters in the world to nearly unbelievable scenes from on-campus life, but all show the love and gratitude that Oakwood parents and alums have for Margo.
