BAPS Back to Basics Gala & Auction
April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Broken Arrow Public Schools Foundation is pleased to announce News On 6 Chief Meteorologist Travis Meyer and Emmy award-winning news anchor Terry Hood will serve as emcees for the inaugural Back to Basics Gala and Auction on April 7 at Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center. Tickets are available now at bitly.com/BABack2Basics.
“We are incredibly fortunate to have such a legendary team emcee this event,” said BAPS Foundation advisory member Charlie Hannema. “Travis Meyer and Terry Hood are two of the most recognizable names in the area, and we are so grateful for their support.”
Meyer has been one of Oklahoma’s most trusted and most respected meteorologists for more than 30 years.
Through “Trav’s Wild Weather Camp,” Meyer and the News On 6 team give back to their community by teaching young students how to stay safe when severe weather strikes. Several Broken Arrow schools have been lucky enough to host the program over the years.
“The first thing everyone thinks of when they hear ‘Travis Meyer’ is the weather, but he’s also one of the kindest people on the planet,” said Hannema. “It’s too early to forecast the weather for our event, but chances are high he’ll make everyone in the room laugh and smile.”
Hood anchors News On 6 at 6 and 10 every weeknight and has also been a fixture on the Tulsa television scene for more than 30 years. She is an avid supporter of the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, helping to raise community awareness and thousands of dollars for the Food for Kids Backpack program.
She also volunteers for numerous other community organizations in her spare time and recently served as a celebrity guest reader at Country Lane Primary.
“Terry is the epitome of grace and class on and off the air,” Hannema said. “Her passion for helping children in Oklahoma is undeniable.”
The BAPS Foundation has awarded more than $500,000 to support teachers and students since its inception in 1992. Grants for the 2017-18 school year will be distributed soon.
