Beacon Awards Honor Oklahoma Businesses

Though it's a waste of time - links to Journal Record articles become broken over time as the Journal Record places them behind a pay-to-view wall, I'll go ahead and link to this article about the Beacon Awards:
The Journal Record next month at its second Beacon Awards event will honor 26 businesses and organizations for their contributions to the nonprofit community.

Four Beacon Award recipients will be selected from the group as the overall winners and announced at the July 9 event in downtown Oklahoma City. Organizations will be recognized in large and small/midsized divisions for their contributions to the nonprofit community. The large business subcategory represents those with more than 100 employees while the small/midsized businesses have fewer than 100 employees.

The companies:

Large business finalists:
• American Fidelity Assurance Co., Oklahoma City.
• Arvest Bank, Tulsa.
• Bank of Oklahoma NA, Tulsa.
• Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma, Tulsa.
• Chesapeake Energy Corp., Oklahoma City.
• Dean McGee Eye Institute, Oklahoma City.
• Devon Energy Corp., Oklahoma City.

In these tough economic times, charitable giving is hard to do. I know my non-profit clients appreciate the efforts of their corporate sponsors. So kudos to the above.
