Claremore Blue Star Mothers Host ‘Christmas in July’

Only one more month until the annual Christmas in July event, hosted by Blue Star Mothers. On July 28, community members will gather at the Claremore Elks Lodge to support the troops. There will be a dinner, cash bar, and live and silent auctions.
Doors open at 5:30p and dinner will be served at 6p. Tickets can be purchased prior to the event or at the door the night of the event. Cost is $15.00 a ticket.
Auction item donations are currently being accepted, as are cash donations. Proceeds will be used to help fund the Blue Star Mothers’ effort to send boxes of necessary items to current active military serving overseas from our area each month. These boxes are just a small way to say “Thank You” to our soldiers for their sacrifice and to let the troops know there will always be people back home thinking about them and praying for them.  The Blue Star Mothers also try to help out with needs at the Veteran’s Center and with the homeless veterans. 
Several awesome items have already been donated and everyone is welcome to come bid on them at Christmas in July! Some of the items are:  Curved screen TV, golf at The Patriot, room and buffet certificate at Downstream Casino,  room and golf at Hard Rock Casino with dinner at McGill’s On 19, and OU football game tickets. Several businesses in Rogers County and Owasso have donated lots of other items to be bid on.  It is a fun night for a very good cause.  Hope to see everyone there showing their support for all the local military troops fighting overseas for our freedom back home.
