ONE, TWO PUNCH AGAINST CANCER

Event: Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation’s Annual 241. Two great events for one great cause — a two-day event benefiting cancer research in Oklahoma.

Where: On Sunday, a wine festival featuring wine, food and Vince Gill in concert was held at OMRF. On Monday, a golf tourney was played at Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club.

What: Around 500 people attended the Sunday benefit, which generated more than $640,000 in donations. Food and drink from nine local restaurants, eight wineries and one brewery were served. Gill and Alice Cooper were showstoppers when they took the stage together to belt out Chuck Berry’s “Nadine.” Although Gill was unable to participate, Cooper stayed to play in Monday’s golf tourney on OMRF’s team, placing third. Twenty-five teams played in the tournament. Team results were: First place: NBC Oklahoma, Wally Johnson, HK Hatcher, Rick Coe and Bobby Wegener; Second place: Banc First, Tyler Smith, Charles Holland, Cary Amundsen, Shay Varnell; Third place: OMRF/Dr. Prescott’s team, Dr. Steve Prescott, Alice Cooper, Bubba Gilliam, Len Cason; Longest drive: HK Hatcher; Closest to pin: Matt Moore.

Chairmen: David Thompson and Tricia Everest were event committee co-chairmen. Honorary Chairmen were Christy Everest and Gene Rainbolt.

Seen: Jane and David Best, Libby and G.T. Blankenship, Susan and Carl Edwards, Brad and Kim Henry, Jerry and Jane Gamble, Gene Rainbolt, Charlotte Lankard, Rep. James and Cindy Lankford, and Barry and Becky Switzer.
