15th Annual Reach for the Stars!

Updated on February 05, 2018

What a great reunion!

Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s Reach for the Stars! This year’s event, A Reunion – 45 Years of Changing Young Lives, was a blast and truly a night for the yearbook. Because of the support of generous friends like you, this year’s event raised $115,000 – $30,000 more than last year’s Reach for the Stars! This generous support will allow Youth Services to continue providing critical services and resources to our young clients!

The Criterion was rocking with music through the decades, delicious food, festive drinks and fun photos from the past. We had lots of great activities like a photobooth, live and silent auctions and the entertaining game of Brains vs. Brawn. Guests also heard from three young people whose lives were forever changed because of the services and care provided by Youth Services.

“We are so excited about the success of this year’s Reach for the Stars!,” said Amber Thompson, Youth Services board member and event chair. “The funds raised from this event will allow us to provide life-changing services to the teens we work with – services we could not provide without the support of our wonderful donors and sponsors!”

We’d like to give a special thanks to our Champion and Hero Sponsors for this year’s Reach for the Stars! Champion Sponsors: Birchall and Hampton, Jeff and Lori Blumenthal, Ken and Jimi Davidson, Mark and Weneva Edge and SONIC, America’s Drive-In. Hero Sponsors: BancFirst, Cooper Auto Group, Foundation Management Inc., McAfee & Taft PC, G. David Neff and Susan Peck, OGE Energy Corp., Oklahoma Cogeneration LLC and Tinker Federal Credit Union.
