The theme "Casino Royale" just about says it all.
The Junior Women's Association of Tulsa Boys' Home will hold its 5th Annual Buttercup Bash from 7:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Sky Event Center, 41st floor of First Place Tower.
The cocktail charity gala will feature casino game tables, a silent auction, wine pull, food, drinks and dancing - all to benefit the Tulsa Boys' Home.
Presenting sponsors are Crown Products, Inc. and Unit Corporation Cost.
The Junior Women's Association is an auxiliary support group of the Tulsa Boys' Home that spends quality time with the boys and raises thousands of dollars each year for the home through events such as Christmas card sales and Buttercup Bash.
Founded in 1918, Tulsa Boys' Home has offered healing and hope to more than 11,800 troubled Oklahoma boys. Tulsa Boys' Home helps 11-to-18-year-old boys with emotional, behavioral and substance abuse problems. It serves about 176 boys each year. It is a United Way partner agency and is located in west Tulsa. Its website is www.tulsaboyshome.org.
Cost for the Buttercup Bash is $60 per person or $100 per couple. Sponsorships begin at $500.
