Article excerpt

Something new has been added to the Addy Awards Gala scheduled Feb. 19 at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

Members of the Oklahoma City Advertising Club, which sponsors the awards and presentation dinner, have been asked to make charitable commitments to the evening to benefit the Advertising Education Scholarships and professional development programs.

Thus, the first ever OKC Ad Club Chair Auction is on the agenda and entries are due by Jan. 30. That means completed chairs. The chair entered can be built, manufactured, made, designed, decorated, produced, painted, molded, sculpted or otherwise created.

Or materials for the chair may be sponsored for an employee, student, brother, sister, mother, child, father, aunt, nephew or other entity to donate a seat for the festivities.

The brochure about the Charity quotes Goldilocks, who first liked the great big chair and then preferred the middle-size chair and, finally, chose the small chair. A 2 X 2 chair is too little; a one- ton chair is too big and somewhere in the middle will be just right. The chair can sit on a mantel or seat a big man but it has to be a method of seating. It can be of any material that won't be of danger to its buyer and the work must be named and preferably signed.

The Awards Gala will begin with creative review of the award entries and charitable auction at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and entertainment at 7 p.m. and the awards presentation and scholarship awards at 7:30 p.m. Cocktails will be complimentary from 6 until 7 and a cash bar will be available starting at 7 p.m.

Corporate tables for eight guests may be reserved for $2,500, Platinum category; $1,000, Gold; $750, Silver; and $600, Bronze. Individual tickets are $75 per person with student tickets $35 each. Checks payable to the OKC Ad Club may be mailed to P.O. Box 20408, Oklahoma City, 73156. For additional information, call Scott Munz at 948-6700.
