Chili Cook-off and Reps for Cash

We will end our United Way campaign week with a chili cook-off to see whose recipe reigns supreme at OSU-Tulsa. Attendees will vote on their favorite chili and prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place.

Our Reps for Cash athletes will be sweating it out to raise money to support the Tulsa Area United Way. You won’t want to miss Dr. Raj Basu attempting 500 push-ups.

Minimum Donation: $5 for chili and dessert

Chili cooks and donations for desserts and fixings are needed! Sign up here to participate or donate.

 

All ongoing events items may be purchased at the Pizza Lunch or Chili Cookoff. Items may also be purchased at the OSU-Tulsa Library or from Karen Castle or Annette Morey on the Second Floor of Administration Hall

Purchase a pass to wear jeans, with your supervisor’s approval. Passes are $3 per day or $10 for the whole week.

Guess the Items in the Jar
