(OKLAHOMA CITY) – Sept. 5, 2017 – This Friday, Sept. 8, join Kendra Scott on Classen Curve in fighting hunger. From 5 to 7 p.m., 20 percent of sales will benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to help Oklahomans struggling with hunger.
This give-back event is one of several activities scheduled during September, which is Hunger Action Month. The goal of the month-long campaign is to bring awareness to the issue of hunger in the state and encourage Oklahomans to take action.

“Oklahoma is one of the hungriest states in the nation,” said Katie Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank. “We really appreciate Kendra Scott joining in the fight against hunger and helping to raise awareness about an issue that affects one in six Oklahomans.”
With philanthropy at the heart of the Kendra Scott business, the company is dedicated to giving back and supporting both local and national causes. CEO and Designer Kendra Scott involves herself personally and professionally in charities that are near and dear to her heart, and she has worked to establish philanthropy as a core value of her company, which includes giving back to Oklahomans.
The majority of the clients served by the Regional Food Bank are hardworking families struggling to make ends meet, seniors living on a fixed income, and chronically hungry children.
Together, we can fight hunger. Through Sept. 30, all gifts to the Regional Food Bank’s Food for Kids Program will be matched, up to $150,000, thanks to the Masonic Fraternity of Oklahoma, Benvenuti’s Ristorante, David Gorham and two anonymous donors.
