Crime Stoppers Celebration 2011

Rib Crib Sponsors Badges and Bars Birthday Bash

Badges and BBQ Battle of the Grills will be held on Thursday, October 27 at 6pm at Christiansen Aviation Jones Airport.  We will celebrate to sounds of the band Mid Life Crisis and enjoy food from Tulsa’s finest smokers. Party goers will enjoy the barbeque cook-off contest between local law enforcement agencies and local fire departments!  

Your sponsorship of Badges and BBQ will help the Crime Commission continue their mission of making Tulsa a safer place to live, work, and play.

Supporting this event will help “Make a Difference” in all communities in our area.

All the meat will be provided by Rib Crib – as well as all the sides and fixin’s! We will have a panel of judges who will determine who wins the coveted trophy and bragging rights! It promises to be a night to remember.

You can securely donate online with a credit card by phone or through PayPal.  You can also simply complete the attached patron sponsorship form and let us know at what level you wish to participate. We sincerely appreciate your consideration, and we look forward to hearing from you!

Endowed Scholarship Testimonial

Through the TC Lane, Jr. Endowed Scholarship at Stetson University, we support students who demonstrate a desire to enter politics and/or have a need based reason for use of the scholarship.  We have seen extreme examples of students escaping war torn countries to those whose parents are unemployed while trying to fund a private education.

These students Make a Difference and are to be commended on their academic endeavors and hard work under extreme circumstances.  Read Emilie’s story.  

Donate today and support a scholarship or other initiative listed on our website.

Fundraiser: Backwoods Bash 2011

There is time for companies and donors to sponsor the festival with a kids area, sound, stage, or title sponsorship.  The Backwoods Bash Music and Camping Festival 2011 on Lake Keystone (Memorial Day Weekend) will be here in no time!  We are excited to announce that band submissions are going very well and we anticipate this year will really fuel the Laptops for Leaders campaign.  Proceeds benefit The Make a Difference Foundation and Vertical Life Youth Initiatives.
