Buying a steak lunch can do more than curb hunger. Thanks to a partnership by the Tulsa Midtown Rotary Club and Outback Steakhouse, that meal can also help several programs aimed at promoting literacy and leadership for school children in Tulsa.
On Saturday, Nov. 15, the Outback Steakhouse at 4723 S. Yale Ave. will be opening their doors specially and uniquely to host the Helping Tulsa Kids – Literacy and Leadership lunch. Seating is limited, and every dollar raised will go towards the following:
• Providing scholarships each year to graduating high school seniors in Tulsa.
• Purchasing and delivering dictionaries to more than 2,000 3rd-grade students in Tulsa.
• Providing school uniforms for students in need at a local school.
• Sending local students to Rotary Youth Leadership training.
• Assisting exchange students going overseas with Rotary Youth Exchange Programs.
• Hosting exchange students in Tulsa through Rotary Youth Exchange Programs.
• Helping Rotary International’s project to immunize children and stamp out Polio worldwide and locally through “Be Wise Immunize.”
Lunch tickets are $15. For more information, contact Joe McCormick at 918-488-8000, Judy Houskeeper at 918-224-6755 or Cherie Bass, event coordinator at 918-629-2787. Phillip Taylor, Outback Steakhouse proprietor, says he will cook the perfect steak.
