Fundraiser Set To Help Hospitality House Project

Posted: Updated:

Grab a partner and help a deserving non-profit this weekend

Hospitality House of  Tulsa provides a wonderful service to families with loved ones in the hospital.

They offer a place to stay and other amenities to help during tough times. And now, the organization is taking its outreach into the hospital itself.

Saturday, Hospitality House is co-hosting Dancing For a Difference. It's a fundraiser for their waiting room survival kit project.

Each year in December, Hospitality House of Tulsa volunteers distribute 500 of these kits to families who end up sleeping in hospital waiting rooms in order to stay near their hospitalized loved one. These survival kits contain bottled water, microwave soups, neck roll pillows, blankets, along with other personal care and comfort items.

Dancing For A Difference will help meet the financial needs of that project. It's a ballroom dancing class and open-social dance event all rolled into one. The folks at Ballroom Blitz are opening their facility for the event.

The dance happens Saturday night with free ballroom dance lessons starting at 7:00pm. The social dance begins at 8:00 and admission is just $5.00. Ballroom Blitz is located just east of 51st and Memorial at 4960 S 83rd E Ave, Suite D, in Tulsa.
