Fundraising Events

at Oak Hall School

The students faculty and staff of Oak Hall School in Gainesville, Florida are supporters of Buildadeafschool.org.  In fact, this website was created and is maintained by students and faculty at the school.  

We recently held a “Duct Tape” fundraiser, where students paid $1 for a single strip of duct tape that was used to a coach to the wall of the student center!  It was a fun way to raise some money for this worthy cause.  Please consider organizing a fundraiser of your own that may help build a deaf school!
