SMG-Tulsa Employees Raise Money For Local Pet Charities

On Wednesday afternoon, over 50 full and part-time SMG Tulsa employees participated in ‘Doggy's Day Out' at Joe Station Bark Park in downtown Tulsa to benefit local pet charities. The volunteer staff charity committee, SMG ROCKS This Town, organized the event as part of their mission to “strive to be the leader in both the entertainment industry and in our community to contribute to the quality of life in Oklahoma and create a lasting impact through community service and charitable giving.”  Employees donated funds which will go to the local Tulsa Society to Prevent Cruelty to Animals and other pet charities. In return, they were able to bring their dogs to work and then to the dog park for an afternoon of fun.  Local vendors donated lunch for the staff to kick off the summer with a great charitable event.

“Employees have a passion for their dogs just like their children.  Getting to share them with others in a fun park-like setting while raising money to prevent cruelty to animals is a cause our employee committee felt strongly about supporting,” commented John Bolton, General Manager of SMG Tulsa.
