Marvelous surprises await the lucky holders of golden tickets to Crossroads' annual Golden Gala at 6 p.m. March 7 at the IDL Ballroom, 230 E. First St.
The gala will feature a dual-set performance by nationally acclaimed jazz artist Grady Nichols and a delectable meal presented by Just Catering by Orr. The evening will also feature a silent auction complete with autographed memorabilia and vacation packages.
Proceeds from the event will allow Crossroads to sustain and expand its mission of assisting mentally ill Tulsans with securing gainful employment, finding safe and affordable housing, returning to educational programs, and reintegrating into the larger community.
Crossroads Clubhouse is a nonprofit, United Way partner agency. With more than 35,000 Tulsans experiencing a mental health disorder annually, the Crossroads Clubhouse's mission is to be a community of support and hope for adults diagnosed with a mental illness by providing choices and opportunities for meaningful employment, housing, education, wellness and social interaction.
Individual tickets to Golden Gala are $50 per person, and corporate sponsorships are available. RSVP by March 5.
For corporate sponsorship information, contact Tiffany Adamson, 918-749-2141.
