You're invited to Miss Oklahoma's birthday party! Miss Oklahoma 2010 that is... What began as Emoly West's birthday party is now a major fundraiser for Oklahoma charities and organizations!
In 2001, the soon to be 15-years-old asked all her friends and family to, in lieu of gifts, donate to her favorite charity, and as they say, the rest is history!
Since 2001, the AWB has benefited 8 Oklahoma based charities and organizations, raising over $75,000 to date, of which 100% of funds raised that year was given directly to that year's beneficiary.
At the first ever Annual Winter Ball, maybe a little over 100 guests attended, and maybe over $200 was raised. Now approaching the 15th AWB, attendance has grown to over 400 guests at times, and over $75,000 raised collectively.
Each Ball includes:
- FREE Ballroom dance instruction throughout the evening (including waltz, swing, salsa, line dancing, etc.)
- Silent Auction
- Live Performances
- And of course BIRTHDAY CAKE!
