ahha Tulsa in the Tulsa Arts District was the setting for the fourth annual CREATE Gala on May 11. Approximately 350 guests attended. Staff, artists and a volunteer committee planned the event, beginning with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the Jack and Ann Graves Garden for the Arts.
A “designer dinner” continued in the main gallery, provided by the Summit Club’s executive chef, William Lyle. Guests then bid on artfully packaged auction items. The evening concluded with a dessert buffet and drinks in a rooftop after-party on the third-floor terrace, with live entertainment provided by singer Branjae.
Approximately $300,000 was raised to support ahha Tulsa’s mission to cultivate a more creative Tulsa.
Branjae and her band perform at the after-party.
