Camp Fire Green Country will hold its second annual fundraiser Spark 2017: Trivia Night on April 27 at 6 p.m. at the Mike Fretz Event Center, 11545 E. 43rd St. The evening will include dinner and a cash bar, a silent auction, and live event trivia.
Proceeds raised at Spark 2017 benefit Camp Fire’s programs and mission to provide all children the opportunity to develop a better understanding of who they are and gain greater self-confidence and the knowledge that they can make a difference, says Camp Fire Executive Director Renee Meek.
The nonprofit organization serves over 2,000 children, grades Pre-K – 12, in Tulsa and Northeastern Oklahoma through after-school clubs, teen leadership training, and camp and outdoor programs. Camp Fire’s structured programming includes STEM and critical thinking activities.
“Eighty percent of the children Camp Fire serves come from low-income or disadvantaged homes, who often don’t have the opportunity to participate in after-school activities,” says Meek.
Just Plane Fun was Camp Fire’s previous fundraising event, which ran for 18 years. However, the organization began searching for new ways to engage its donors and guests and to better share Camp Fire’s mission and efforts in the community, says Meek.

All new and increased sponsorships will be doubled through a challenge grant provided by the George Kaiser Family Foundation.
