Heroes Ball Seen as Model for Nonprofits Across Nation
The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy (OICA) invites members of the public to cast votes for outstanding individuals and organizations and honor their work for children and families across the state.
It is all part of OICA’s annual Heroes Ball slated for Friday, July 31. The event happens each summer to recognize those Oklahomans who have worked to improve the quality of life for the state’s youngest resi dents and to raise money for OICA’s ongoing mission of child advocacy.
This year’s Heroes Ball is unique in that it is the first attempt by a nonprofit organization in the nation to conduct a virtual event of this size with meal delivery. OICA’s fourth annual event is being held virtually due to the need for social distancing as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. According to OICA CEO Joe Dorman, other nonprofits struggling to find ways to continue operating are watching OICA closely to see if an event of this magnitude is viable in the post-COVID-19 world.
