Mary & Friends: OA Fundraiser with Kris Allen

We're excited to share some wonderful moments from the Oxford American's March 22, 2014 fundraising event, Mary & Friends! On behalf of the entire staff of the Oxford American Literary Project—thank you to all of our supporters, donors, and friends who made the event such a great success.

Huge thanks to our hosts Mary Steenburgen (OA Board Member) and Ted Danson, and to special guest Kris Allen, who blew us all away with his musical talent. We couldn't have asked for a better auctioneer than Craig O'Neill, and we so appreciated the wonderful food from Chef Matt Bell of South on Main. 

Most of all, we are grateful to all of the OA readers and fans who attended the event. We are truly humbled by your support and inspired as we continue to dedicate ourselves to bringing you the Oxford American
