MIO Coalition has set a goal to sell 1 million paper towel rolls by the end of the month. A portion of the sales benefit the Regional Food Bank’s Food 4 Kids program, which provides nearly 8,000 chronically hungry elementary school children with a backpack filled with nutritious, kid-friendly food on weekends and holidays throughout the school year.

Join the “Eat Up” with food prepared by Good Egg Dining Group, a member of the MIO Coalition. DJ Dan from Oklahoma Party Patrol will provide the tunes. Oklahoma’s own Miss America 2007 Lauren Nelson Faram and Project Runway’s Johnathan Kayne will be joining in the festivities, so come by for autographs and photos! Senator Andrew Rice will also be in attendance to help celebrate this local initiative.

Purchase MIO paper towels for $2 to play a round of paper towel bowling for a chance to win an MIO gift basket (valued at $150). Win additional free entry in the raffle every time you make a strike!

The first 100 attendees will receive a Made in Oklahoma goodie bag, which includes MIO coupons, a Tastefully Oklahoma cookbook and information about the coalition and the Regional Food Bank. The event will also include giveaways of gift cards to Good Egg Dining Group restaurants, including Red Prime Steak, Iron Starr BBQ and Cheever’s Restaurant.
