Oklahama City gears up for inaugural gala

September 29, 2012 by  

Oklahoma Sierra Club is celebrating its 40th anniversary and, in honor of that event, has planned its very first gala celebration tonight.

This fun-filled evening will have two renowned, nationally-recognized guest speakers – Sara Hodgdon, Conservation Director of the Sierra Club, and Rt. Rev Steven Charleston, an indigenous people’s advocate.

Hodgdon oversees the environmental programs for the club, while Charleston is the Executive Director of Native American Ministries, who supports environment improvement for the world. Besides the prestigious guest speakers, the group is planning an awards ceremony to honor the people that have worked hard over the years protecting the water and air in Oklahoma.

The gala evening, which will include a silent auction, will provide guests with the opportunity to hear two great speakers, network with others, and meet some truly wonderful new people. There will be d’oeuvres and an open bar. People who purchase a sponsor package will be provided the opportunity to meet with the guest speakers prior to dinner. A reception is planned from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm and will be hosted in Ran Ricks Room.

Postcard printing and poster printing were probably used to promote this gala to members of the club and the community. Tickets cost $75 per person or can be purchased at a discounted rate in groups. With the celebration taking place tonight, September 29, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Remington Park Suites Level, Eclipse Room, located at 1 Remington Place in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
