Each round reduces the number of talented competitors, until two finalists compete for the grand prize!

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.
 
2019 marks the 11th 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.

Held each November, the goal of the Hirst Hospitality Awards is to recognize and honor the hardworking employees in the foodservice industry. The event pays tribute to the backbone of the restaurant industry - the restaurant employees. This members-only event gives employers the opportunity to single out and recognize their best workers, acknowledging the value of a good staff.

"This evening of celebration is a wonderful opportunity for our members and friends of our business to get together and honor those employees who often go unrecognized but who are so important to the success of the foodservice industry," says Jim Hopper, President and CEO of the Oklahoma Restaurant Association.

The Hirst Hospitality Awards Dinner helps us reach two very important goals. First, to celebrate employee excellence, and to recognize their personal pride, service and dedication to the restaurant industry. Second, to support the Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation's goal of providing scholarships to qualified students of the hospitality industry. Our goal is met not only through paid attendance at the event, but with contributions made during the auctions as well as additional fundraising activities.

The hospitality industry is the driving force in Oklahoma’s economy, generating enormous tax revenues, providing jobs for hundreds of thousands of Oklahomans, and giving time and money back to their communities. At the same time, it’s vital that we maintain good relations with legislators so that our perspective on various bills and issues is given thoughtful consideration.

On February 5, 2020 members of the Oklahoma Restaurant Association, Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association, and Oklahoma Travel Industry Association will join forces for Hospitality Day at the Capitol, a members-only event where we will spend time speaking to legislators about issues facing our industry. 

Then members will mingle with more than 500 members and legislators while we do what we do best - show these leaders Oklahoma hospitality! - at a bigger and better-than-ever “A Tasteful Affair” Legislative Reception. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of "A Tasteful Affair" and will feature more than 20 of Oklahoma’s finest restaurants showcasing their culinary tastings at what is heralded as the state’s most successful and best attended legislative reception.
