When asked about the nature of the event, Chris Scharrer, Executive Director of Leadership Oakland shared, “ We have so much to celebrate in Michigan from great brews, to farm grown products, to highly successful corporations that are based right here locally. I can’t think of a better reason to have a party and raise a glass to the abundance of our region and state. We hope others will join us in this celebration.” Oktoberfest will also be a great opportunity to meet the Leadership Oakland LOXXVI selected class members.
