THANK YOU to all of our sponsors, attendees and donors that helped us celebrate the Golden Age of Hollywood on April 24, 2018!

At the event, we honored Ed and Dee Owen's legacy of support and volunteerism to OCP, while raising important funds to further support the organization's mission: to enhance quality of life through live theatre, professional touring and arts education. Your support of this event ensures we are another step closer to fulfilling that purpose!
