In late 2016, we were honored to work with the Oakland Marriott and its GM Lisa Kershner to create the Oaklandish Suite, with wall coverings, bedding, and more designed by Oaklandish. Together, we pledged to donate 10% of proceeds from the suite to the Oakland Promise, a community effort established by Mayor Libby Schaaf to ensure that all Oakland students have the skills, resources, and expectations to complete college and embark on a successful career.
On March 15, 2018 representatives of the Oakland Marriott and Oaklandish were able to present to Mayor Schaaf and the Oakland Promise the check for the first year of this collaboration: a total check amount of $4180.55! When Oaklanders come together, we are able to do great things! Thanks to the whole crew at the Oakland Marriott for making this happen (and for the delicious virgin Mai Tais too)!
