Cowboy fans look for bragging rights and to make a difference in Bedlam Food Drive
TULSA (Nov. 10, 2011) – OSU will try for a fifth straight win as Cowboy and Sooner fans compete in the sixth annual Bedlam Canned Food Drive to benefit the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.
Oklahoma State University and University of Oklahoma fans will compete to raise the most donations of canned food and money now through Friday, Dec. 2. The OSU-OU Bedlam football game takes place on Saturday, Dec. 3.
OSU fans can score points for the Cowboys by donating non-perishable food items at several locations around Tulsa. OSU-Tulsa will have drop boxes located in the North Hall Lobby, Main Hall Commons and the first floor of Administration Hall. Donations will also be accepted at the OSU Center for Health Sciences and OSU Health Clinics as well as City Hall and Spiffy’s Cleaners locations at 3201 S. Harvard, 5419 S. Harvard., 8090 S Yale Ave., and 10021 S Yale Ave.
Monetary donations are also accepted at the Food Bank’s website at www.cfbeo.org. A $1 donation equals two pounds of food. Participants can click on the “Donate Now” button, specify in the “food or fund drive” section that their donation is part of the Bedlam Canned Food Drive and note whether their vote is for OSU or OU.
OU won the first competition in 2006, but OSU rallied for victories the past four years. During last year’s Bedlam food drive, OSU beat OU by over 2,500 points, which include food items and monetary donations. A total of 7,206 pounds of food and $1,942 was donated and used to support the 450 Partner Programs served by the Food Bank.
