ANNOUNCEMENT ... Congratulations to Victor See of Sisserou’s as the winner of both the Juried and Popular votes for the Fourth Annual First Lady of Brady NOG OFF!!!! You have never tasted egg nog ice cream like this! As you visit your favorite watering hole in Brady Arts District, ask if they have any of their Holiday offering available. You see just how tough the competition is.
Thank you to the sponsors, patrons and contestants who contributed to the success of the event. The NOG OFF raised over $6,000 for the Art Department of Emerson Elementary School. We will again help Emerson bring various visual and performing art opportunities to these students.
The Brady District Business Association will host the Fourth Annual First Lady of Brady Nog Off on Sunday, November 27th. All proceeds from the First Lady of Brady Nog Off will benefit the Art Department of Emerson Elementary School, which is located just north of downtown Tulsa.
Advance purchase is required. 19 businesses now competing for the titles!!!!
Teachers and administrators at Emerson provide unique learning opportunities for students to succeed in the future, offering students many real-world connections and experiences in the Arts and a focus on STEM Projects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.)
"Emerson Elementary is a proud community school that has celebrated over 100 years in service to our community. Our students are striving toward excellence. They are meeting life's challenges by focusing on character, teamwork and creativity.” said Kristi Bradley, President of Emerson’s PTA. “The students are excited about special opportunities in various forms of the arts. The Brady Arts District Business Association is helping make that possible through the First Lady of Brady Nog-Off.”
“All Tulsa Public Schools have experienced funding reductions. The various Arts programs tend to be some of the first affected. This includes both Performing and Visual Arts. In The Brady Arts District, we realize the daily influence The Arts have had on our successes. We believe in the power of The Arts to lift a person’s spirit and give them a meaning and drive in their life. For many of our individual business owners, the artistic opportunities provided them in their early years supplied the inspiration for a lifetime of personal and career satisfaction.” said Bob Fleischman, President of the Brady Arts District Business Association.
This year will feature two events. Starting at 5 p.m., a Sponsors’ Reception will be held. This preliminary event will allow the Sponsors and their guests an opportunity to engage with Emerson staff and PTA members. For this special reception, there will be live entertainment, commemorative ornaments, hors d'oeuvres, early access to the contestant nogs, and tickets to the NOG OFF.
