YWCA luncheon tickets available

ENID, Okla. — Tickets still are available for the annual YWCA Enid luncheon Monday.

This year’s luncheon is set for noon at Oakwood Country Club. Tickets for the luncheon are $50 each and tables of eight seats can be purchased for $400.

“It is our only fundraiser of the year,” said Executive Director Kim Blankenship. “The money raised directly benefits the programs and services in the Crisis Center and Halfway House.”

This year’s keynote speaker is Enid native Louisa McCune-Elmore, executive director of Kirkpatrick Foundation. Enid musician Kyle Dillingham will perform at the luncheon.

The event includes a Purses with Purpose auction, a popular part of the luncheon.

“We have a brand new Louis Vuitton that will be raffled (as well as) many name-brand purses donated by ladies in the community,” Blankenship said. “We have had a wonderful response from local businesses who have sponsored the event this year.”

Also at the event, Woman of the Year and Volunteer of the Year will be announced.

Last year, Gail Wynne was named 2012 Woman of the Year and Northwestern Oklahoma State University-Enid student Brittany Webb was named 2012 Volunteer of the Year.
