  • Oakland, CA (1888PressRelease) April 19, 2012 - East Bay Loop, the East Bay's leading online concierge guide, and Vail Event Services, a full service event company, announced an expansion on the upcoming third annual Oakland Block Party. Over ten bars and restaurants in various districts throughout Oakland will be participating. Attendees will purchase passports to obtain food or cocktails at each venue; one hundred percent of the proceeds benefit the public schools of Oakland. Participating attendees will have complimentary cocktails or delectable bites at each participating venue when they show their passport.

    In an attempt to raise funds for the public schools of Oakland Unified School District (OUSD), the past two years, East Bay Loop and Vail Event Services have hosted a smaller version of this event, having raised roughly $15,000 annually, all of which was donated directly to schools within OUSD. 2012 promises to be the most successful year yet, with a goal of raising $60,000. This will be achieved by expanding the venues to include restaurants and bars outside of the Uptown District of Oakland.

    East Bay Loop is the East Bay's online concierge guide which aims to highlight the very best in community, art, food, music, nightlife and shopping, throughout the cities that make up the East Bay Area. Jasara Lawrence, East Bay Loop's Founder, notes the importance of East Bay Loop's mission of corporate responsibility within their community, "…we look forward to raising even more funding for OUSD during our third year of hosting the block party."

    Vail Event Services is a unique party and event planning service which represents the venue directly, thus they have a variety of venues to place clients in the perfect setting for every occasion. Vail Event Services specializes in corporate events and buyouts, birthday parties, holiday parties, table reservations and bottle service, large group dinners, wedding receptions, and other celebrations. "The Oakland Block Party is so rewarding for us. It is our best event of the year because we get to help the Oakland Public Schools with fundraising, create an event for the community, promote local businesses, and it keeps growing each year! "

    The collaboration between East Bay Loop (www.eastbayloop.com) and Vail Event Services (www.vaileventservices.com) is the perfect formula to expand this annual event and create an enjoyable evening for patrons, while raising the much needed funding for the youth of Oakland.
