The second annual Night of Dreams gala, presented by Tulsa Dream Center, was Feb. 21 in the Crystal Ballroom of the Mayo Hotel. Attended by 250 guests, the gala raised $258,000 for its LIFE (Literacy Is For Everyone) program, an after-school and summer reading outreach created in 2011 for at-risk youth in north Tulsa. The program aims to break the cycle of poverty through education, medical care, clothing, food distribution, recreational sports programs and disaster relief.
