Oklahoma Restaurant Association - Event Information


Event Name:Thirst for a Cause
Event Type(s):Foundation Event
Description:Thirst for a Cause, an annual event started in 2009, raises funds to help with urgent medical expenses for members of Oklahoma's hospitality industry. Through our non-profit Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation, we are able to give something back to the hard-working employees of independent restaurants and country clubs. Thirst for a Cause was established to meet the extreme medical needs of persons employed in the restaurant industry in Oklahoma. Funds are limited and will be awarded based on demonstration of need to long-term employees in the restaurant industry. Aid to individuals may only be provided if such individual has no other means to receive needed support, such as from insurance, government assistance programs, etc. Monetary support will not be granted directly to the individual, but to the entity supplying goods and services to the individual, i.e. hospitals, physicians, etc.
 
2018 marks the 10th year for the event and also promises to have an even better line-up than last year, with 30 premium wineries serving over 200 great wines and 10 local restaurants! 

As you walk around and sample food from some of Oklahoma City's best restaurants, you'll be able to meet and interact with winemakers from all over the wine world. These vintners, who represent some of the best wines available in the country, are coming all the way to Oklahoma to help raise money for our cause. This is THE best wine tasting event of the year! Nowhere else will you be able to meet this many vintners, taste this many great wines, and sample this much amazing food under one roof - right here in OKC!
 
The Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation is a 501(c)3 charity, so your purchase is partially tax deductible and nearly 100% of the money raised at this event goes directly to the charity--not to cover costs.

Tickets are $75 in advance and $89 at the door.
