In observance of Veterans Day, the Tulsa County Bar Center will be closed on Friday, November 11, 2016. We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to all who serve and have served in the military!
“Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor ALL those who served honorably in the military – in wartime or peacetime. In fact, Veterans Day is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served – not only those who died – have sacrificed and done their duty.” – US Department of Veteran Affairs

2016 Holiday Challenge
Here is the latest update on the progress of the 2016 Holiday Challenge to benefit families in need through Family and Children’s Services. Thank you to Judge Greenough and family who formed a team and chose to adopt a family of four! Also, the TCBA Children and the Law Committee team is adopting a family of six!
We need you to get involved so we can help more families this year. It’s simple. You can either choose to donate money, or you can choose to “adopt” a specific family in need.
Here’s how it works:
“Adopt a Family”:
- Select the family size that you or your team want to “adopt”;*
- Submit your team’s information (names and contact information) and size of family you wish to “adopt” via email to email@example.com;
- Once matched, you will be given a list of requested items from your “adopted” family. The items requested for your “adopted” family will need to be gift wrapped and dropped off to either TCBA or Family & Children’s Services in Tulsa by December 2, 2016;
- Family & Children’s Services will distribute the gifts to your “adopted” family!
*How much you spend on your “adopted” family is totally up to you. Many requested items from families are basic necessities like socks, underwear, clothes, shoes, diapers, toys, etc. Just as a suggestion, a budget of $50-$100 per family member should cover most, if not all of the requested items. Thus, for a family of four, a budget of $200-$400 would be great.
If you would like to “adopt” a family, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by October 28 so we can start the matching process with Family & Children’s Services.
Cash: Send your tax deductible donations payable to TCBF and note “Holiday Challenge” on your payment. Cash donations will be accepted through December 9, 2016. All monetary donations will be given to Family & Children’s Services to help provide for families who were not “adopted” specifically.
Don’t wait! Gather your family, friends, or co-workers and form a team. It’s a great cause and your donations are tax deductible!

EAT FOR A CAUSE NIGHT: BENEFITING MENTAL HEALTH ASSOCIATION “TULSA’S PET PROJECT”
Thursday, September 29, 2016
Baxter’s Interurban Grill located at 717 S Houston Ave #100, Tulsa, OK
The Tulsa County Bar Foundation Community Outreach Committee “Eat Out for a Cause” campaign has organized a night out at Baxter’s Interurban Grill (717 S Houston Ave #100) on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2016.
From 5:00 p.m. to close, 20% of all food sales will go toward funding the Mental Health Association Oklahoma “Tulsa’s Pet Project.”
When someone is living on the streets, so is their pet. Many individuals will refuse help and support because they are afraid they will have to give up their pets. Tulsa’s Pet Project wants to remove barriers to treatment and basic needs for individuals experiencing homelessness or mental health problems by providing short term care for pets so their owners can connect to services in the community, including medical care, treatment, housing, and job training.
Hope to See You There,
Mary Kathleen (Katy) Inhofe
Community Outreach Committee, Tulsa County Bar Foundation
In observance of Labor Day, the Tulsa County Bar Center will be closed on Monday, September 5, 2016. We would like to wish you all a happy holiday!
