November Harvest scheduled Nov. 9



This year's November Harvest will be held at the Woodward Conference Center and the Mid-Day AMBUCS are excited about being in the new venue.

"The first Harvest Gala was done in the (Josie Adams) Cultural Center, and we were only able to have 12 corporate sponsors," Colclasure said.  "We've also held it at the Elks Lodge, and the Pioneer Room, and they were great, but this is by far our largest venue. We've gone from 24 to 42 tables due the amount of space the convention center offers, and that's fantastic for our cause."

Local businesses are encouraged to "sponsor" a table, in return for which they receive 8 tickets for the Harvest meal.


In addition to the sponsorships, the event will  feature both live and silent auctions to raise more money to help fund AMBUCS' charitable services.

"We'll be auctioning the table decorations created by local volunteers to help us raise funds during the live auction," said Colclasure. "Every year we encourage decorators to come up with a theme, we don't put any kind of restrictions on them. There's no limit to what they can create."

The live auction will also feature sports memorabilia autographed by OU and OSU players, gift certificates to local businesses, and a framed print of an oil painting by the late Robert Carver, an artist featured earlier this year in Woodward's own Plains Indians and Pioneers Museum.

"The silent auction will consist of items donated from businesses around the community, such as auto detail package, complimentary oil changes, and package deals including a dinner out and free stay in a local hotel room for the evening," Reeg said.

In addition to the auctions, the event will also feature 2 raffle drawings.

"We will be raffling off a 42-inch high definition television purchased from Modern Appliance, as well as a Savage hunting rifle chambered in your choice of caliber, the winner of which need not be present at the time of the drawing," Reeg said. "Between the live auction, the silent auction, and both raffles its going to be a very full evening."
