Team Tulsa and National Make a Difference Day

By Taylor on December 15, 2011 in AmeriCorps

Decade-of-Divas2This year, National Make a Difference Day was the same day as the biggest fundraiser of the year for H.O.P.E., an HIV testing clinic that the Tulsa AIDS Team has been working with for 18 years! So of course we jumped at the chance to help out at “Decade of Divas,” an evening including auction items, great live music, and wine.

H.O.P.E. stands for Health Outreach Prevention Education and is one of the largest HIV prevention organizations in Oklahoma. It provides free HIV testing Monday-Thursday during the day and also has a walk-in clinic on Monday and Thursday evenings. H.O.P.E. is Brant’s host site this year, was Carolyn’s host site last year, and has been hosting AIDS United/AmeriCorps members since 1994.

Decade-of-Divas1Paige and Karen got to help out at the wine pull, Carolyn staffed the silent auction, and Naomi and Brant got to work the registration table.

Overall the whole team had a great time getting dressed up, hanging out together, enjoying a great music and a good cause. We also imagined what it would feel like to have the kind of money that people were bidding on dinners, cruises, vacations, jewelry, art and other fine auction items.
