We knew that the early March old-school telethon for The Oasis, the beloved SoMa drag night club, has surpassed its fundraising goal. But now can confirm that the Oasis is definitely not going anywhere, as the club sent a Monday afternoon email confirming that the club will indeed be continuing operations after their telethon raised close to $300,000.

An email went out to Oasis telethon donors on Monday, April 12, nearly a full month after the telethon took place, confirming that the Oasis was officially saved by the donations brought in by the March 6 fundraiser.

“Because of your generosity the Oasis will be able to keep our doors open. We are so thankful for your support.,” says the email, which bears Oasis co-owner D’Arcy Drollinger’s signature and lipstick marks. “With love and appreciation from the entire Oasis Family, thank you.”


The Oasis fundraiser on GiveButter shows that the campaign has currently raised $270,000. The original funding goal of the campaign was $100,000, but this was raised to $200,000, and was still well exceeded.

The club’s website says that the venue is currently closed. But until the Oasis can start throwing events again, the club is currently streaming events this week including The Beat: with Lisa Frankenstein! (Weds, April 14), The Gay Husbands of San Francisco – The Reunion (Friday,, April 16), and Talkin’ Snacks with Snaxx (Sunday, April 18).
