Oklahoma barbecue franchise Rib Crib raised $90,000 for military families at their 13th Annual Rib Crib Golf Tournament. Nearly 150 golfers teed it up for a good cause on August 3, 2015 to support Hope For The Warriors®, a national nonprofit dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.

Presented by Prosperity Bank, the event was held at the Golf Club of Oklahoma in Broken Arrow. Participants were treated to two all-you-can-eat Rib Crib BBQ luncheons on the course. Land Rover of Tulsa and Don Thornton Cadillac sponsored the hole-in-one and provided participants with three chances to win a new Range Rover or Cadillac. The Bruce G. Weber Raffle included diamond earrings, a Hasty Bake Grill, a Mossberg shotgun, Yeti coolers and much more.

The silent and live auction items included a 100 person PigMen BBQ cater, a Fleming’s Steakhouse private dinner for 12, an OU Heisman autographed football, a Duck Hunt at Dillingham Ranch, Polo Grill dinner for ten, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and OKC Thunder memorabilia.

“Participants and organizers of the Rib Crib Golf Tournament went above and beyond to make this a memorable and successful event,” said Robin Kelleher, Hope For The Warriors® President. “This donation will make a huge impact on our programs that support military families. On their behalf, we are very grateful.”

Many of Rib Crib vendors supported the tournament as corporate sponsors, including Andreini & Company Insurance, Auto Chlor, Barcas, LLC, Curtis Restaurant Supply, Dr. Pepper, Farmer Brothers Coffee, The Barkley Law Firm, The Holmes Organisation, Tyson Foods and Saint Francis Hospital.

This is the first year that Rib Crib has supported Hope For The Warriors® through the Rib Crib Golf Tournament.
