Every hand opened for the sake of giving has helped make greater Tulsa a better place. This is exactly what happened last Thursday at the annual fundraiser held by the Charitable Foundation, Appetite for Construction. This year was a record year for the gala as $87,000 was raised to support our community.
Generosity started the moment Metro Appliances and More graciously donated the use of their facility for the 8th year in a row to raise money for the Charitable Foundation, which supports local charities focused on housing and education. The evening included 10 of Tulsa’s local favorite chefs cooking some of their recipes and serving attendees in different kitchens throughout the evening. The evening also included a live auction, silent auction, raffles and entertainment by the Barrett Lewis Band.
Since its inception in 2013 the Charitable Foundation has funded and completed projects with a total value exceeding $700,000. To rganizations such as Lindsey House, Tulsa Habitat for Humanity and Family and Children Services.
