'Experience', is the key word

By Citizen staff

Experience is the key word. Not the experience you can receive from a job, but the experience than can be felt from an event. The Habitat for Humanity Wine Experience, June 8, would like for you to have such an experience.

Yes, this is a "black tie optional" event. Some folks just like an opportunity, once in a while, to dress up...tux and all, however, this is going to be an enjoyable event and "we wouldn't want "dress" to keep folks away," Humanity fund raising chairman David Reid. Just put on your Sunday best and come enjoy the event.

"If you're interested in coming, just call 918-225-2631 or 918-223-6566 to make your reservations. We'll hold your tickets at the door," Reid said.

For those who don't care for wine, there are plenty of non-alcoholic beverages available.

Experience a Steer Inn like you've never seen before. Jason Kinzie and Blake Hollingshead are well-trained chefs and are excited about putting on a spread with elegance and complete with ice sculptures hand carved by Kinzie.

Experience the excitement of the auction by auctioneer Greg Griffeth. "Jan Retherford has successfully put together a selection of awesome silent auction and live auction items. You may be the successful bidder of a very nice item at a good value," Reid said.

Experience the pleasant and soothing sounds of the string quintet by the Tulsa Philharmonic. "Never before in Cushing have people had the opportunity for this quality of entertainment in this close and intimate setting," Reid said. Experience the overall event, all proceeds of which help less fortunate families experience the pride of home ownership available through Cushing Habitat for Humanity. Give children a chance to grow up in a family environment of stability and pride which owning a new home can provide. "There are no give-aways, the family pays back every dime, and we are transforming some eyesores in Cushing into tidy, efficient, well cared for adequate housing," Reid said.
