Oklahoma City Public Schools Foundation officials recently announced a reimagined community fundraiser that enables everyone in the community to show support for the Oklahoma City Public Schools district. T-Up for OKCPS begins pre-sales of T-shirts bearing the message, OKCPS Champion, and will culminate with everyone participating wearing them on Thursday, May 5.
The event’s co-chairs are Ashley Fitzpatrick, YPO Oklahoma City chapter manager, and J.D. Baker, City of Oklahoma City – Special Assistant to Mayor Holt, said Mary Mélon, Oklahoma City Public Schools Foundation president and CEO.
“T-Up for OKCPS brings to life our mission of advancing excellence, advocating for equity and building strong community support for Oklahoma City Public Schools. This campaign is an engaging and inclusive approach to raising funds that ultimately are invested back into the district’s schools, staff and students to fulfill their needs,” Mélon said. “In its inaugural year, T-Up for OKCPS needed innovative leaders and advocates who embrace collaboration, and we have found that in our event co-chairs Ashley and J.D. along with the entire event committee.”
