Do you know Michelle Rodriguez, the vice president of programs for your OKC chapter of the United Nations Association?
|Michelle speaking at our
annual Nelson Mandela Day
celebration in OKC
Sure, you do. Maybe you saw her at the Nelson Mandela Day celebration at the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center. Maybe you participated in the International Literacy Day fundraiser last month (which Michelle organized with help from her friends!). Michelle is the advocacy director for our chapter as well as serving as our VP of programs. She knows how to get the job done!
Michelle is looking for a good crowd to enjoy our UN70 Luncheon on Saturday, October 24th. So, in her honor, we’re offering a limited number of specially priced tickets — $25 — that’s $10 off the regular price. But, it’s only for the lucky people who purchase their tickets through this special online ticket portal …
… managed by EventBrite.
At our UN70 celebration, you’ll have the chance to share a table with some of the best folks in all of Oklahoma. They’re your kind of people — bright, friendly, and committed to the values of the United Nations. You’ll enjoy good food. You’ll hear an inspiring message from Mr. Mike Beard of the UN Foundation and the Better World Campaign. It’s an event you will not want to miss.
|We hope to see you at the CHK | Central Boathouse.|
It all takes place at the CHK | Central Boathouse on the Oklahoma River. It’s the home of the University of Central Oklahoma’s women’s rowing team!
People around the world are celebrating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations. Plus, we’re joining with folks around the world in helping to launch the new Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The global goals will serve as the world’s to-do list from 2016-2030. They form the world’s shared agenda to end poverty, promote peace and opportunity for all, and protect the planet.
