LEWIS BLACK has decided to make his performance at Rose State Performing Arts Theatre on Friday, September 27 at 8PM a benefit show to provide relief for the victims affected by the recent tornadoes that devastated the cities of Newcastle, Shawnee and Moore along with other cities throughout Oklahoma.
“As soon as the tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma this summer, I decided that whatever I made that night would go to assist those who were in their destructive paths,” Black said. “I have always kept a place in my heart for the good people of Oklahoma as my father graduated from the University of Oklahoma. Here's hoping that when Oklahoma State plays Oklahoma, that they will be just a little kinder and keep my charitable contribution in mind. Maybe not yell so loud at my Dad's Sooners.”
All of the proceeds from the performance will be donated to Oklahoma City Community Foundation and their work with those stricken by the recent tornadoes. The Oklahoma City Foundation has established the Oklahoma City Tornado Recovery fund in which it will direct 100 percent of gifts and donations to assist with the needs of those impacted by the storms.
