The Oklahoma Health Center Foundation recognized five Oklahomans as 2012 Treasures For Tomorrow event on Thursday, April 12. The 13th annual celebration was held at the Petroleum Club in Oklahoma City and started with a reception followed by the awards dinner. The 2012 Treasures are Carl and Susan Edwards, Harold and Sue Ann Hamm and Dr. George Young Sr. The Jean I. Everest Foundation was the presenting sponsor.
The Treasures For Tomorrow honor pays tribute to individuals whose passion for life, courage and inspiring actions serve as a model for quality values and goodness in our community. Dave Lopez and Teresa Rose were co-chairs for the event.
Treasures For Tomorrow event proceeds and generous donors have raised significant funds for beautification projects across the Oklahoma Health Center campus. During the next three years, 2012 through 2014, funds will be dedicated to a public art project to be located at The Children’s Hospital. The project has not been announced yet. Completed projects include two public art projects, “Ten Bronze Standing Flowers” at the Stephenson Cancer Center, and “New Horizons,” located in front of the Dean McGee Eye Institute. Other projects were the Founder’s Plaza at Stiles Park featuring the Beacon of Hope, Jimmy Everest Garden Walk and the Live Oak Grove. Details and photos of each project appear on the Oklahoma Health Center website.
