Organizers of the annual Winter Glow fundraiser benefiting Sand Springs Community Services are, well, all lit up after the Jan. 22 event sold out more than two weeks early.

Lawyer Cynthia Phillips, who is leading the planning for the event, appeared to almost apologize on Friday for not having any more tickets or tables to hawk, but she hopes the COVID pandemic will subside enough for the event to next year can expand to accommodate more people. .

For those lucky enough to snag a spot at this year’s event, which will be held at the Case Community Center, an evening of food, entertainment and fun is in store.

The catered dinner is provided by the Rib Crib. The menu will be sirloin steak, chicken breast, salad, roast potatoes, green beans, rolls, tea, water and coffee, with a full cash bar available.

Music will be provided by fan-favorite band Jennifer Marriott, featuring Marriott on vocals and guitar; her husband, Pete Marriott, also on guitar and vocals; Brandon Holder on drums; Jordan Hehl on bass; and Jack Wolfe on keyboards.

Fun to be had will include the popular heads or tails game, a silent auction, a raffle and photos from the party.

Phillips said organizers strongly encourage all patrons to wear masks except when eating in light of the current spike in COVID-19 infections.
