The Center of Hope is hosting a Home Energy Aid Bean Chowder Fundraiser on Monday, July 16th from 11am-1pm at 102 North Denver in downtown Tulsa. Tickets are $5.00 and include bean chowder, cornbread, green salad and iced tea. Cinnamon rolls will be available for an additional donation. One dozen tickets can be purchased for only $50. The bean chowder may taste familiar to alumni of Tulsa Public Schools. The chowder is made from a nostalgic TPS recipe. If you share pictures of your own school days, or any childhood memorabilia at the fundraiser, you will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win $100 of your August electric bill.
All proceeds from this event will go towards the Center of Hope program which helps those who are facing financial problems pay their utility bills. In 2011, the program helped 3,167 people by distributing $288,450. So far this year, the Army has spread more than $154,157 to 1449 people who need help.
So make your co-workers, friends and family happy by buying their lunch! Contact Heather Houston at (918) 582-7201 ext. 208 if you’d like to buy a ticket (or a group of tickets) now. “Take-out” boxes are available, just call ahead to order.
