Oysters and Ale 1

Freshly shucked oysters, nestled in beds of ice as far as the eye can see – 3,000 of them, paired beautifully with finely crafted beer or ale from Oklahoma breweries – this is the simple concept of Hospice of Green Country’s 5th Annual Oysters & Ale held in partnership with Executive Chef Tim Richards of Doc’s Wine and Food.  This “come and go” casual oyster buffet will be held Thursday, March 31st, 5 – 8 p.m., in a fun new location – the German America Society of Tulsa.

The best from Oklahoma’s breweries will be provided by Anthem Brewing Company, Choc Beer, Coop Ale Works, Dead Armadillo, Marshall Brewing Company, and Prairie Artisan Ales.

Olympia, Blue Point, Duxbury Pearl, Lady Chatterley, Beausoleil, Wellfleet Bay — once again Hospice of Green Country is using the romantic names of oyster varieties for their sponsor levels ranging from $250 to $7,500.  In addition to the main event, sponsors also get to enjoy a Patron Party a month prior to the event, so early sponsorships are encouraged!

In addition to the oysters and ales, Ben E. Keith, Biga, Charleston’s, the Hen Bistro and Wine, Sonoma Bistro, Tallgrass Prairie Table, and Ti Amos will provide delicious edible additions for the evening.  Wine will also be provided.  Musical performances for the evening provided by Sean Al-Jibouri, Olivia Duhon, Travis Fite, and Arthur Thompson.

The Oysters & Ale Patron Committee includes Katie and John Dale, Bernie and Ken Dornblaser, Catherine Glock, Gina and Mike Lodes, Kerry Walsh, Randi and Fred Wightman, and Tom Young.

Proceeds from Oysters & Ale go to support the hospice care for patients who do not have the ability to pay for end-of-life care and do not have insurance.  As northeast Oklahoma’s only United Way supported hospice, Hospice of Green Country provides compassionate, quality end-of-life care to the terminally ill and their families in northeastern Oklahoma – without regard to their ability to pay.

Hospice of Green Country is the leading provider of hospice care for those without financial resources in northeastern Oklahoma.  The organization is licensed by the state of Oklahoma and certified by Medicare.
