Community leaders from a broad spectrum of business and industry sectors recently assembled for the first time to begin preparations for the 2015 Tulsa Area United Way campaign.
Nearly 50 members of the Campaign Cabinet, which leads the annual United Way campaign for the community, gathered to begin planning this year’s campaign.
“Each of you has stepped up to take a major leadership role in your community,” said Ted Haynes, president of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma, who is serving as the chair of the 2015 United Way campaign.
The campaign officially begins in August and concludes on Nov. 12, although several Trailblazer companies will conduct their campaigns early this summer.
The team leaders of this year’s campaign are Steve and Marla Bradshaw, Bank of Oklahoma and community volunteers; Aaron Fulkerson, Schnake Turnbo Frank; Curtis Dinan, Gas, Inc.; Matt Pivarnik, Tulsa Regional Chamber; Anita Holloway, Ernst and Young, ; and Lee Eslicker, D&L Oil Tools.
“These dedicated individuals have already begun to prepare for the campaign,” said Mark R. Graham, president and of the Tulsa Area United Way. “Each member of the cabinet is committed to developing the resources necessary to building a better community and improving the lives of our friends and neighbors.”
