For more than six decades, members of the Oklahoma Association of Mothers’ Cubs have worked diligently to provide a healthier future for us all. This year continued that tradition.
On April 7, members of the association presented representatives from OMRF with a check for $1,788 at the Mothers’ Clubs annual banquet at the Skirvin Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City.
The check brings the Mothers’ Clubs total contributions to OMRF to more than $128,000 since they made their first donation in 1955. Their donations go to fund cancer, heart disease and autoimmune disease research at the Oklahoma City-based nonprofit.
“It is still such a worthwhile cause to continue to give to OMRF. Our association just loves what they continue to do,” said OAMC Treasurer Teresa Fletcher, of Kingfisher. “We see their work starting to impact our association members and it is very close to our hearts.”
Each year, OAMC chapters across the state raise money for OMRF by holding bake sales, golf tournaments, 5k runs, and father-daughter dances.
“OMRF was started out of a grassroots effort of Oklahomans who wanted to come together and make a difference. The Mothers’ Clubs are a perfect example of this tireless support,” said OMRF Vice President of Development Penny Voss. “We cannot express how thankful we are for their 61 years of dedication to helping other live longer, healthier lives.”
The association, founded in 1940, is made up of Mothers’ Clubs in the following Oklahoma cities:
