“Memphis to Moore” Event Generates $35,000 for Tornado Relief Efforts in Oklahoma

A local weekend fundraiser to benefit residents of Moore, Oklahoma-sponsored in part by Memphis-based Indian gaming design firm Hnedak Bobo Group-netted more than three times the amount of money event organizers initially expected to raise. The Friday, June 14th “Memphis to Moore” event brought in $35,000 from Memphians to go directly to Moore Public Schools Tornado Relief Fund. On May 20th, an EF5 tornado swept through Moore and surrounding areas, at one point reaching 1.3 miles wide, churning slowly on the ground for 17 minutes and causing catastrophic damage – to the tune of $2 billion – to the community, including the local public school district. Additionally, it was later discovered that the homes of 20 Native American families had been destroyed in Moore, Oklahoma.

Having strong ties to many Indian gaming clients in Oklahoma through their projects across the state, HBG teamed with the mastermind behind the “Memphis to Moore” fundraiser-current Memphian and Moore-native Angela Copeland-as a participating sponsor. (more…)
