Klubhouses for Kids


Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


If you really want to see some imaginative playhouses for children, trot over to Leadership Square. You'll find at least four of them on view. They've been created for the Klubhouses for Kids project benefiting Travelers Aid of Oklahoma, which is scheduled at Leadership Square on April 10. This is the third year Travelers Aid, with the commitment of local architects, contractors and supply stores, have offered these children's dream playhouses for auction.

Oh, and if you go to the second level of Leadership Square, you'll see miniature houses done by local miniature fans to display at the benefit. They're just fascinating and two of them will be offered for auction, along with trips, condos, pool parties and other goodies.

Tickets to the benefit, which will run from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m., are $35 per person or $60 per couple. Reserved tables of eight are available for $200. Just call 232-5507 to make your reservations. In addition to the live and silent auctions, party-goers will enjoy entertainment by Edgar Cruz and food by Aunt Pittypat's. Fox 25 News Anchor Jack Bowen will be master of ceremonies and Gene McKown will be auctioneer. What child wouldn't love to play in a castle? That's the shape of "Camelot," the playhouse designed by Architecture Design Group. Working with them have been Nashert Constructors and the Lumber Shed. This castle, replicated in faux stone, has turrets and everything. Another house to be auctioned is shaped like a carousel with merry-go-round ponies painted on it by Sharon McKay. The group that created this one includes Bockus Payne Associates, Anderson & House Construction, the Lumber Shed, Oklahoma Roofing and Brat Paint. Traditional Cape Cod is the theme of the "Klubhouse" designed by Rees Associates in partnership with Lippert Brothers and the Lumber Shed. The fourth house we saw resembles a tree house resting on simulated tree trunks. It's colorful and clever. This benefit is sponsored by Seagrave Travel, Fox 25, The Journal Record, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, the RedHawks, Southwestern Bell Telephone, Southwestern Stationery & Bank Supply, Ford Audio, Triangle A&E and MG Novelty. Travelers Aid is a nonprofit organization that supports, develops and implements programs to aid the homeless and stranded travelers. `Payne-less' fund-raisers April is a big, big month for volunteers at the Payne Education Center, a nonprofit organization that trains teachers in multisensory techniques to teach reading, spelling and writing. A new fund-raiser -- the Premier Card -- will be started at a breakfast Thursday at Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. Then, on April 8, Payne Center will have its Company Spelldown `99 at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center, also a benefit for the center. …
