Join us to honor Dr. Keith Ballard and Elliot Nelson, Wednesday November 11th
Since 1956, the Tulsa Press Club has honored “Headliners” – those outstanding Tulsa civic, business, professional and industrial leaders whose unselfish contribution to the growth, prosperity and culture of Tulsa has made headlines across the city.
We are excited to continue the tradition and announce our 2015 Headliners:
• Dr. Keith Ballard, OU-Tulsa professor and former superintendent for Tulsa Public Schools
• Elliot Nelson, entrepreneur and owner of restaurants such as McNellie’s and El Guapo
Keith and Elliot join a distinguished group of past Headliners, including Steadman Upham, Kathy Taylor, David Boren, Wilma Mankiller, Stan Lybarger, Chester Cadieux, Henry Zarrow, Steve Turnbo and many others who have made a lasting impact on our community.
In addition to honoring this year’s Headliners, the Tulsa Press Club will use a portion of the event’s proceeds to fund scholarships for Oklahoma journalism and communication college students.
We hope you will join us as a sponsor of the 2015 Headliners dinner on the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in the Sky Room.
As a sponsor, your organization will receive exposure through media and promotional efforts, and be recognized at the event, which is attended by many outstanding community leaders and past Headliners. We have several levels of sponsorship available as detailed on the enclosed sponsorship request.
For more information about the 2015 Headliners event go to www.tulsapressclub.org. For sponsorships and tickets, please visit https://shop.tulsapressclub.org email email@example.com or call 918.583.7737 and ask for Shaun Lee, general manager.
