BOK CENTER’S FUNDRAISING INITIATIVE AT ERIC CHURCH CONCERT BENEFITS TULSA RESTAURANTS IN NEED
March 3, 2022 – After a devastating fire completely destroyed BurnCo and badly damaged Farm Bar nearly two weeks ago, Tulsans came together to help support these two local staples in the community. BOK Center and ASM Global Acts recognized the importance of philanthropic support and quickly developed a fundraising opportunity to take place during the Eric Church concert on Saturday, February 19.
ASM Global’s enhanced corporate social responsibility platform, ASM Global Acts, is a renewed and refocused commitment to global sustainability and equity. In addition to establishing a more centralized and intentional corporate social responsibility program, ASM Global will focus its efforts on meaningful actions and measurable results at both the corporate and community levels.
Without the generous support of over 12,000+ Eric Church concert attendees, this fundraising opportunity wouldn’t have been possible. On top of the donations that were raised, ASM Global Acts and BOK Center are helping to further support the cause by rounding up the total to make the donation amount an even $3,000. All donation proceeds will go directly to both businesses’ employees who lost their incomes due to the fire.
“We are incredibly proud to support the Tulsa community in a time of need,” said Bryan Crowe, BOK Center Vice President & General Manager. “We believe it is our responsibility to be proactive in the support of making the community that we serve a better place now and in the future. Both BOK Center and ASM Global Acts recognize the importance of investing in people and strengthening communities.”
When word got about this fundraising opportunity, two local businesses, Aspen Electric, and Abundant Staffing Solutions wanted to show their support as well. They collectively matched the amount raised and are contributing $3,000, which brings the total donation to $6,000.
“We can’t thank all those who donated at the Eric Church concert and BOK Center enough for their show of support for your fellow Okies,” said Adam Myers owner of BurnCo. “It came unsolicited and as a deed of humanity that is authentic and genuine and is truly appreciated by myself, BurnCo, and Tulsa as a whole.
