Garver helps local charity raise more than $3,000

A pair of Garver-sponsored events held in Tulsa recently assisted a charity aimed at helping those with developmental disabilities raise more than $3,000 as part of a months-long fundraising effort.

Garver helps local charity raise more than $3,000

Ten volunteers from Garver’s Tulsa, Oklahoma office hosted a pancake breakfast followed by a four-on-four sand volleyball tournament last month. All proceeds from both events went directly to A New Leaf, a Broken Arrow-based organization that provides those with developmental disabilities with life skills and job training through horticulture and community-based vocational placement.

Garver’s pancake breakfast, assisted by volunteers from a local Chili’s restaurant, where the event was held, the Civitans from Tulsa Community College, and The Eagle, KJSR-FM, 103.3, raised more than $2,000 by selling tickets at $10 each. After additional tips and donations, the breakfast averaged more than $25 per person. Then, a 10-team volleyball tournament, assisted by the Tulsa Volleyball League, provided even more assistance to the organization. Both were held as part of A New Leaf’s “Grow Together” campaign to raise funds and awareness through a variety of events spread over multiple months.

“From raising funds to awareness, we learned a lot about planning and operating these types of events,” said Garver Project Engineer Jordan Jones. “A New Leaf is a vital part of our community here, and we look forward to continued work with them, and their 'Grow Together' campaign.”
