Annual Governor's Luncheon

Annual Governor’s Luncheon

Since Oakland Military’s Institute founding in 2001, Governor Jerry Brown has maintained a strong relationship with the school. Each February, OMI holds a luncheon featuring Governor Brown as the keynote speaker. All proceeds from the luncheon are used to support curriculum and facility enhancements, before and after school programs, and counseling and scholarship programs.


This year’s event was held at Scott's Seafood Restaurant in Oakland's Jack London Square. $2.1 million dollars was raised and thanks to the generosity of our donors, our academic classes, leadership training, cadet support programs are of the highest caliber. Funds raised from this event, will be used to support wrap around school programs, technology, curriculum, and facility enhancements, as well as mental health, counseling, and scholarship programs.
