My Community Involvement
- A community organization of which I am singularly proud and would like to share with you is the Oral Lee Brown Foundation. This foundation was started by an Oakland Realtor to benefit the educating of Oakland youngsters. She started with an entire class of first graders promising them that if they stayed in school and finished high school, she would send each one to college. She did that, of the original 23 youngsters, 19 received a college education. She has continued each year with youngsters recommended by teachers, principals, and guidance counselors. The REALTORS adopted this non-profit as the primary beneficiary of our charitable giving. It has been my honor for three years to chair our fundraising efforts to assist with this most ambitious and successful goal-directed endeavor.
