I am an Okie from Tulsa! I went to Marshall Elementary, Nimitz Jr. High, then Memorial High School. My ENTIRE family went to OSU, and since my brother was already causing trouble there, I decided to go to OU. The unofficial start to my career was in Norman. I decided to start the Pi Kappa Alpha ROOOOOOLLLING Radio Show. I put a 10 Watt Radio Shack speaker under the hood of my car and drove around playing music and interviewing people on the sidewalk...

I will be there from 4-6PM if you want to come by and say Hi!!! Here is the official press release:
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, October 23, 2012 – Thanksgiving will come a few weeks early for neighbors of the Long John Silver’s on 2741 SW 29th Street, as the restaurant will give away 10,000 free chicken dinners to celebrate the first annual Oklahoma City “A Day of Giving” on Tuesday, Oct. 23. The event begins at 4 p.m. and the first 10,000 people to visit the restaurant will receive a free 2-piece chicken meal served with four hush puppies and water.
“A Day of Giving” is the brainchild of Tabbassum Mumtaz, founder of Apex Restaurant Management, Inc., which operates the SW 29th Street Long John Silver’s. Apex Restaurant Management, Inc. employs over 4,000 employees and operates 174 other Long John Silver’s and KFC restaurants. Mumtaz sees the event as a way to give back to the community and show just how important the neighbors of the local restaurant are.
“We are so honored to be a part of this community and we wanted to take an opportunity during the season of giving to give something back to our neighbors,” Mumtaz said. “We recognize that it’s a difficult time for many, and we hope ‘A Day of Giving’ will be an example
that inspires other local businesses to lend a hand.”
The restaurant will be open for business as usual until 12 noon, when it will close in preparation for the afternoon’s free food giveaway. Local dignitaries will be on hand when the
restaurant reopens at 4 p.m., as “A Day of Giving” begins.
Beginning at 4 p.m., the first 10,000 people who visit the restaurant will receive a free two-piece Long John Silver’s chicken meal. The meal will also include four hush puppies. The
restaurant will accommodate both drive-thru and walk-up customers. After the
success of last year’s event, “A Day of Giving” will also be celebrated at two
KFC locations: one in Stony Island, Illinois on November
8th and the other in Dallas, Texas on November 20th.
“A Day of Giving” takes place as Long John Silver’s, KFC and Yum! Brands restaurants across the country and around the world participate in World Hunger Relief efforts. Since World Hunger Relief was founded in 2007, more than one million of the company’s employees,
franchisees and family members have volunteered more than 21 million hours to aid hunger relief efforts worldwide. The effort has raised nearly $85 million for the World Food Program and other hunger relief organizations. This money has provided more than 350 million meals to save the lives of millions of people around the world.
“A Day of Giving” is brought to the neighborhood by the Apex Family Foundation and TracyLocke. Neighborhood and city leaders, as well as the news media are invited to attend this public event.
