A Valentine for Valerie Silent Auction and Fundraiser

A Silent Auction Fundraiser for Owasso resident Valerie Wright will be held on Sunday, February 24, 2013.  The fundraiser event will take place at Rejoice Church (13413 East 106th Street North-Owasso) from 2:00-4:00pm. 

Valerie Wright was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in August 2010. While Valerie has been a pillar of strength and treasures each day and every blessing in her life; there is a reality of the financial strain that comes with such a diagnosis. Valerie has lived in Owasso for over 30 years, and worked at Walmart for over 20 years, before being stricken with this horrible disease. 

There will be a silent auction at the fundraiser, with lots of wonderful gifts to bid on. Some of the items include:

-2 Garth Brooks CD's personalized and autographed by Garth
-1 Tricia Yearwood cookbook personalized and autographed by Tricia 
-1 Carrie Underwood CD autographed by Carrie
-A weekend stay in a lake house at The Coves on Grand Lake with round of golf for two (2).
-Weekend stay in a cabin in the Wichita Mountains.
-Brighton purse (donated by Surcee)
-Dooney and Burke purse
-Under cabinet refrigerator (donated by Metro Appliances & More)
-2 Club Level tickets to Maroon 5 concert at the BOK Center
-One night stay at the Ambassador Hotel Tulsa with dinner at The Chalkboard
-Golf Bag
-Art pieces

Valerie also wrote a book, "Recipes & Life Lessons From The Beach", which will be on sale for $20. She was a wonderful cook. She shared many of her recipes with me over the years, and they are all my family's favorites now.

The goal for this fundraiser is $25,000. Your support will help reach this goal.

Monetary donations can be sent to:
