Veteran sportscaster and journalist Bob Costas will give the keynote speech at the William Booth Society Dinner, the largest annual fundraising event for The Salvation Army in Tulsa, on Thurs., Apr. 18, at the Tulsa Convention Center.
The William Booth Society Dinner, named for The Salvation Army’s founder, is the largest source of funding for the outreach programs that include the Center of Hope homeless shelter, Christmas assistance, addiction recovery and the Boys & Girls Clubs.
The theme of the April 18 dinner is “Great Futures Start Here,” focusing on the success of The Salvation Army’s six Boys & Girls Clubs in metro Tulsa. The clubs offer after-school tutoring, sports and summer activities for more than 6,000 area youth. Students from the six area clubs will showcase their leadership and artistic skills with decorations and entertainment for the event.
The roster of former Tulsa Boys & Girls Club members who have gone on to great futures includes athletes Felix Jones of the Dallas Cowboys, Robert Meachem of the San Diego Chargers, state Rep. Jabar Shumate, CBS sports analyst Spencer Tillman and former Sooner football star Darryl “Rocky” Bright, who now works in economic development for the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce.
