FRIDAY NIGHT, DOWNTOWN

Only in OKC: WSKY Q and Blues party-goers had a great time Aug. 24 at the Dunlap Codding Event Center. There was a whole barbecued pig with all the appropriate sides (homemade potato salad, baked beans), craft cocktails and lots of great music from the Tony Foster Jr. live band. About 300 people attended the event. Foster is a Classen School of Advanced Studies alumni and the occasion benefited CSAS.

One generous idea: Mark Mann and Marc Brockhaus, founders of Onward Oklahoma Foundation, organized the party to raise funds for chromebook laptops for Classen SAS students. This is the third year for the event, previously known as Bourbon, BBQ and Blues. OOF raises funds and resources for Oklahoma-based nonprofits serving children and education.

At the door: Etched drink glasses were presented to guests as they arrived and served as party favors when they were empty. They were used for high-end whiskey tastings during the evening. Creative drinks with apple cider and burned oranges also were served. Kam's Kookery provided the barbecue and Ralph's cooked the pig. Strings of lights decorated the outdoor space at the center.

BACKSTAGE AT THE MUSIC HALL

Take a bow: High school friends and family members of Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill met him backstage after his hometown performance at the Civic Center Music Hall this summer.

CELEBRATING THE 55th REUNION

Best of the best: Classmates got together for the 55th reunion of Harding High School Class of 1963 at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill in Bricktown. They met to celebrate and enjoy friendships and share high school memories. "We Are The Best You Will Ever See. We Are The Class of '63" has been the long-standing slogan of the class.

DAR WORKSHOP

Event: The Oklahoma Society Daughters of the American Revolution met at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Norman, for a workshop with special speaker Honorary President General Lynn Forney Young. Theme for the workshop was “Reaping Blessing.”
