Twenty Pearls Foundation2018 Community Activities

Greetings From President Cynthia Jackson-Burns

President Cynthia Jackson-Burns

Since its foundation in 2003, the Twenty Pearls Foundation has manifested its mission of community service to the Oakland community. In 2017, we awarded $17,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors. In addition, we conducted an annual community health fair for over 500 community members free of charge. There we promoted health awareness, financial literacy, wellness, and college/career readiness. 


To finance our efforts, the Twenty Pearls Foundation will conduct three fundraising events:

  1. Day at the Races. Our annual Twenty Pearls Foundation’s Day at The Races, will be held on April 7th at Golden Gate Fields. Come prepared to be dressed to the nines while showcasing our favorite hats.
  2. Off the Vine. 2018 is the fifth year co-sponsoring an evening of unforgettable socializing and wine tasting. The venue for this year will be Impact Hub in Oakland, CA, on Saturday, June 30, 2018, from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. 
  3. The 8th Annual AKA-Twenty Pearls Foundation Scholarship Golf Tournament. This year’s golf tournament will be hosted at Metropolitan Golf Links located at 10051 Doolittle Dr. Oakland, CA 94605 on Saturday, September 29th and is one of the best events of the season.

Leveraging the power of our 160+ Twenty Pearls Foundation members, we continue to forge ahead and focus on taking our foundation to the next level in 2018 by:

  • Expanding our reach and impact within the community by offering more scholarships; and

  • Effectively raising awareness of the Foundation within our community with our activities.

I look forward to working with the board to continue these worthwhile endeavors.  I am thankful for our supporters’ donations and the support of our network that allows us to give back to our community.


Best regards,

Cynthia Jackson-Burns
President of Twenty Pearls Foundation
