YOU CHOSE

Results are in:  At the September 13 meeting members viewed the displays and heard the presentations of the representatives from four non-profit finalists: Cavett Kids, Homeless Alliance, Pivot Youth Services, and Sisu Youth Services. Members ranked the non-profits 1-4 as to how they wished our 2019-2020 grants to be distributed. The two non-profits that received the most 1s and 2s will benefit from the proceeds from Ladies in the news. Those selected for that were Pivot: A Turning Point for Youth and Homeless Alliance's floral program. The other two will each receive our smaller grants. Sisu Youth Services and Cavett Kids were selected for those. Awards will be given at our May meeting. Congratulations to these four worthy non-profits. OHC Screening Committee received a record 17 grant applications this year. All the applicants are amazing and worthy of support. To be selected as one of the OHC final four was quite a feat. So OHC members, let's each support ALL our fall and spring fundraisers so we will be able to give the biggest possible grant to each of our final four.


Grant Applicants requested:

Cavett Kids - funds for summer camp for growing number of campers  - benefits chronically ill kids at OU Childrens' Hospital

Homeless Alliance - Establishing brick and mortar florist shop which will train and employ their homeless clients

Pivot: A Turning Point for Youth - the purchase of commercial grade washers and dryers for their residential on-site laundry room

2019-2020 Fundraisers

Committees have been working throughout the summer to organize and prepare our five fundraising events this season.  Through these annual events we raise money for the grants we give to the selected non-profits.  As you recall, we gave $57,000 last season to four outstanding charitable organizations.  We were able to do this through the hard work AND monetary contributions we as OHC members made.  In addition to fundraising for grants, members have the opportunity each month to donate In-Kind items to additional Oklahoma non-profits.  Your yearbook lists the month, charity, and needed items.  Members may always write a check or give cash in lieu of bringing a tangible item.  This newsletter will also carry that information so each of us may plan ahead and prepare our donations according to schedule. As one members says “we are blessed that we are on the giving side.” 

 

Various service opportunities for members will be announced during the year as well.  We are a giving, doing, serving club who likes to meet monthly for lunch to greet each other, learn through educational programs, and celebrate our success in ongoing outreach and donations to the recipients of caring Oklahoma non-profits.  Please plan to play an active role in our club this season.

 

Theatre (Theater?) Night

No matter how you spell it, this fundraiser has proven to be a fun evening for our club members and guests.  The performance of The Legend of Georgia McKnight is September Wednesday 18, 7:30 p.m. at Carpenter Square, 800 W. Main, OKC. Purchase your $20 tickets at our September 13 luncheon.  Board members are asked to purchase 3-5 tickets and non-board members are asked to purchase at least two tickets.  If you cannot attend that night, please purchase and donate your tickets to OHC. They will be given to clients of a non-profit.  Cash bar and snacks will be available that evening.
