Since 2009 S&B’s Burgers has donated over $300,000 to hundreds of organizations, schools, charities and individuals through our Pay it Forward program and we are proud to continue this in 2017. Each month we have selected an organization that will receive $. These groups have already been chosen and will be in announced in the months to come. With this change the organizations will benefit from sales each day.
In addition we will also continue offering local groups the opportunity to raise funds at S&B locations through our new FUNdraiser program. This is geared towards organizations like schools, ball teams, school bands, local churches, etc. Organizations will receive a percentage of the receipts from the guests they bring in. The FUNdraiser program will be up and running later in 2017. Further information and applications will be posted on the S&B’s website at sandbburgers.com.

World AIDS Day is Friday, December 1st.
Please join us in standing in solidarity for those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. There are several ways to participate in our week-long recognition of World AIDS Day.

December 1st marks the global awareness of World AIDS Day. Each year, organizations and communities around the world come together to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS, remember those we have lost, and support those living with the disease. World AIDS Day is an important reminder that the disease is still prevalent in our state and that there is still a need to bring awareness to the cause. The Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund and local HIV/AIDS service providers are collaborating to paint the town RED in support of World AIDS Day and bring much-needed awareness to the cause. In conjunction to painting the town RED, we will host several give-back events leading up to World AIDS Day.

Below is a list of opportunities to stand in solidarity and support World AIDS Day in Oklahoma City. Thank you to VI Marketing and Branding for sponsoring this year’s World AIDS Day events.

Don’t forget OACF World AIDS Day Art Show Tonight Artists showing their solidarity with Oklahomans living with or affected by HIV/AIDS will display their work in a show at Waters Edge Winery in the 2nd floor event space on Thursday, November 30, 2017 from 5:00pm-8:00pm in honor of World AIDS Day. This event has a suggested entry donation of $10 to benefit the Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund. Waters Edge Winery is located at 712 N Broadway Ave in Oklahoma City.

The featured artists’ work on display is intended to start broader conversations about HIV/AIDS in order to reduce the stigma here in Oklahoma. This is our 2nd annual World AIDS Day Art Show. We hope it will continue to serve as a catalyst for awareness and support.
