Thank you for making Blank Canvas 2014 extra special!
Your ticket sales, patron sponsorships, silent and live auction donations, auction sales and volunteerism made a world of difference for homeless and struggling teens right here in our community. Because of your dedication and generous support, Blank Canvas generated revenue necessary to fill gaps in funding for our life changing programs.

Special thanks to our eight talented chefs for providing a fantastic competition and a ton of delicious food for our guests. You made this a night to remember! Everyone did a tremendous job, creating imaginative dishes from one secret ingredient - cinnamon. Our panel of judges chose our Best Chef - Michelle Donaldson from Tallgrass Prairie Table. After tasting each of our chefs' dishes, you chose our People's Choice winner - Candace Conley from The Girl Can Cook. Congratulations, Michelle and Candace!

Blank Canvas is THE hottest event in Tulsa! Join us for a live celebrity chef competition, incredible auctions and a whole lot of fun - all in support of homeless and at-risk youth! 

Who's the best chef in Tulsa? You decide! Sample extraordinary dishes from 8 top chefs and vote on your favorite for the People's Choice Award.  

The real winners of Blank Canvas are Tulsa's youth. We will assist 17,000 adolescents and their families this year with issues like poverty, mental health challenges and homelessness. It's a big job. We can't do it without your help.

Blank Canvas is our only major fundraiser. Your support through ticket sales and patron sponsorships helps fill the gaps in funding needed to operate our crucial programs and services.
