Once upon a time, there was a village called Oakland that decided to create a very special place: “The Dream of Every Child Come True.” They named it Children’s Fairyland. On Thursday, June 4, the magical park will be opened for adults only, with twinkling lights, scrumptious food and drink, special performances and live and silent auctions. The theme: A Cinderella Story.
Visitors will dress in fairy-tale or storybook attire and enjoy a memorable evening on the shores of Lake Merritt. As a nonprofit organization devoted to ensuring that all kids have access to the magic of our park, we rely on our annual fundraising Gala to keep our fairy wings aloft.
