O.A.T.S Charity Event
September 13th

As with most non-profits we are funded by grants and donations. Additionally, we also create funds through numerous fundraisers and events. O.A.T.S. will be hosting its Inaugural Charity Event at our new location. The event will include an evening of music, dancing, food from the Detroit BBQ Company, special guests and a silent and live auction. It promises to be a fun evening for all.
