Oakland Community College Garden Party

The beautiful grounds of Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester provided a perfect backdrop for the 11th annual Garden Party. The requested attire was “garden chic.” Over 650 guests enjoyed fare from 30 of Michigan’s best restaurants paired with 100 fine wines. Proceeds from the event will provide scholarships and other support for students in OCC’s career and technical education programs, including automotive, culinary arts, firefighter tech, HVAC/R, law enforcement, machine tool tech, robotics, and welding.
