Geoffrey's Inner Circle Historical Site Fundraiser

****This Fundraiser Benefits Geoffrey's Inner Circle****

Geoffrey's Inner Circle
is located at 410 14th Street in the heart of downtown Oakland.  For over 30 years GIC has been the axis and the epicenter of live musical performances, professional comedy, live jazz and a plethora of additional community functions that are too numerous to mention.  

Many of your favorite stars were born and bred into greatness as a result of  performing within these walls.  Household entertainment names such as Kat Williams, DC Curry, Paul Mooney,  Luenell, Raphael Sadiq & D' Wayne Wiggins, Destiny's Child, Oakland Legend Too $hort, E40 and Jay Z to name a few. 

Sports powerhouses such as Michael Jordon,  Barry Bonds, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier (not on the same night, of course), Shaq and many more have all graced this location.

Geoffrey's had the most esteemed pleasure of presenting Mother Maya Angelou to our community on numerous occasions.  Also, Oakland's own home grown Vice President Kamala Harris.

Additionally, GIC has  served as a community feeding hub, providing hot meals to the most vulnerable members of the community on a regular basis.  This level of community service is a much needed and invaluable asset to the overall health of Oakland. 

For all his years of kindness and multi-neighborhood assistance, owner Geoffrey Pete received the prestigious Jefferson Award for Community Service and was named a Pillar of the Community by the Oakland Indie Awards.

Geoffrey's Inner Circle does not just present the culture of Oakland.  GIC  lives, heals  and defines the culture.

Covid 19 has presented itself as a huge hurdle for this historical landmark to overcome.  A year of closed doors has taken a harsh toll. 

We are asking for your support to keep this jewel of the Oakland community alive.  The friends of Geoffrey's Inner Circle would like to thank you in advance for another 30 years to serve the beautiful and diverse Oakland Community.  Your generous support is greatly appreciated and is the catalyst for Geoffrey's Inner Circle's beloved continuation.
