OSU in Tulsa raises more than $50,000 for United Way
TULSA (Oct. 1, 2010) – Oklahoma State University's two Tulsa campuses have raised a combined total of more than $51,600 for the Tulsa Area United Way, President Howard G. Barnett Jr. announced Friday after a month-long campaign.
Barnett said OSU-Tulsa and OSU Center for Health Sciences chose an aggressive joint goal of $50,000.
"Because of the importance of United Way to our communities we opted for a target that was a stretch given what each campus traditionally had raised independently,” Barnett said. “I couldn't be more excited that we've exceeded our goal in our first combined campaign."
This year’s campaign featured several of activities intended to raise awareness and encourage donations from students, faculty and staff. The Tulsa campuses also participated in the annual United Way Day of Caring on Sept. 10.
