IT ALL STARTED FROM THE HEART WITH FRIENDSHIP IN MIND
Jim Robinson got his buddies together and played golf in memory of their friend and classmate, Ray Moss (Class of ’63). Jim recruited Bob Griggs in 2004 and 2005 to help and together they raised approximately $5,000 to contribute to NWC.
Jim and Bob solicited help from Lynne Hardin and Vicki Roark, who have experience with non-profit foundations and raising money.
On June 4, 2006 the “FRIENDS of Northwest Classen High School Foundation” was given 501c3 tax exempt status from the IRS. Many more “FRIENDS” showed up and NWC alumni gave of their time, talents, and money to make the golf tournament a success.
“A Knight to Remember Homecoming” was added to the Sunday evening prior to the golf tournament on Monday. It’s a great way to keep in touch with other grads on an annual basis, as well as contribute to FRIENDS of NWC if you do not play golf. This has become an outstanding evening in the past three years. It includes foods from the best of Oklahoma City’s restaurants,“A Taste of OKC for NWC”, live entertainment, auction, and an evening full of fun, friendship, and reminiscing.
Our next EVENTS will take place September 21 & 24, 2014
