Celebrate Schools at #TPSFuncorked on Thursday, May 5, 2016

We are celebrating our schools on Thursday, May 5, 2016, at the Armory Municipal Building in Tahlequah from 7-9 PM.

What should you expect?

Uncorked celebrates the grant recipients from 2015-2016 school year and kicks off our fundraising for next year's grants.  So, please bring your checkbook, your piggy banks, and your credit cards.  We want to help our schools, and our teachers know what they need. Help us give it to them!

Behind door #1 is General Admission: Join us for tasty treats from local restaurants Napoli's, Rib Crib, The Branch and Reasor's. Distract your young ones with our special kid-friendly area. Enjoy music from our middle school choir.  Purchase door prize tickets for $5 each or 5 tickets for $20.  Bid on silent auction items donated by our amazing local businesses. Thank school employees for making our community better and smarter.


Behind door #2 is Uncorked: Join us for the "uncorked" aspect of our event.  Advanced tickets are available for $20 at Celeste Looney Insurance, TRA Photography, Health First Chiropractic, and Mary's Liquor. Tickets are $30 at the door. What do you get for your ticket?  Local sommelier Heather Ezell has paired tasty treats from Reasor's with delicious wine and beer from Mary's Liquor. You'll also get two door prize tickets, and the first 100 get a commemorative wine glass. Heather will be around all night to answer your questions about everything from dark beer to picnic bubblies. (You might even ask her about which wine is best with paddle board yoga because she is the owner of Hang Zen!) She will give special talks at 7:15 and 8:00.


These super-cool tumblers will be available for $50. Be the first to get yours at #TPSFuncorked.

Drink a cool or warm beverage in style and support of public education.

If you can't make it that evening for whatever reason--like you'd rather sit in your pajamas at home--we understand. Please consider donating online. Just click here to go to our website and click on the "donate" button.  Thanks!
