Donor Updates

With Coalition funds, we were able to be the presenting sponsor of the Claremore West Bend "Winterfest" ice skating rink. This was the first year for the City to  have this event, and the Coalition is proud that we were able to support it. This new event at the West Bend Green located outside at the Claremore Expo Center!  Winterland was reminiscent of holiday memories with an ice skating rink, pictures with Santa, real reindeer borrowed from the North Pole for you to see and take pictures with up close, shopping from local artisans, a beautiful 50 foot live Christmas tree and more! Families enjoyed skating, hot cocoa and caroling. Because of the major sponsorship, the Coalition was able to have a free skate night for invited guests only. The Coalition focused on families and children at Hope Harbor, clients of Sooner Success and the Department of Human Services, and Parkside.
