Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is our annual gourmet brunch, darling! A Mimosa and Bloody Mary bar, a Tiffany-inspired candy buffet, and a fashion show…all to benefit the early childhood programs of Oak Academy, our nationally accredited and QRS Level 5 state licensed early care and preschool.

We’ll raise a toast to friends old and new at this informal after-work happy hour gathering at The Foundry featuring heavy apps and bourbon tastings. No formal registration or fee, but free will donations will be accepted to benefit the programs of Oakridge Neighborhood.
