TU Uncorked, the annual fundraiser for the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, benefits Tulsa-area students
TU Uncorked was held on Friday, June 22 at Cain’s Ballroom. This flagship event for the Tulsa Chapter raised nearly $80,000 for scholarships that support Tulsa-area students with a financial need.
This year’s event once again shared video testimonials from students who have received this scholarship. Featured recipients include Sydney Alison, Class of 2020, and Lindsay Deline, Class of 2019. Their moving stories may be viewed online, and donations to the scholarship fund are welcome year-round at utulsa.edu/give.
TU Uncorked featured generous presenting sponsors David and Leslie Lawson. This year’s Honorary Chairs were Pam & Frank Haith, TU Men’s Basketball Head Coach, alongside Ashli & Philip Montgomery, TU Football Head Coach. The event was chaired by Jennifer (’01) and John (’01) Laeger, and Cochairs were Katie (’01, ’02) and Seth (’03) Ahrens.
Attendees were invited to sample food and drinks from local restaurants and wineries that generously donated their offerings. Sweets & Cream, McGill’s and Brookside’s newest eatery Oren joined the restaurant lineup this year. Oren was also the inaugural VIP section restaurant and beverage sponsor.
TU Uncorked annually includes a wine pull and silent and live auctions, featuring items such as once-in-a-lifetime TU football and basketball trips, custom paintings by John Hammer and Chris Mantle, as well as a private concert experience in the TU suite at the BOK Center. Rustic Cuff, a local boutique owned and operated by Jill Donovan (JD ’03) provided bracelets for a unique jewelry pull, featuring TU-themed cuffs.
