Diamond Hats Ready for This One From the Girls Event

Mon, 14 Mar 2011 7:13:51 CDT

Diamond Hats Ready for This One From the Girls Event One of the key support organizations for the Oklahoma Youth Expo are the Diamond Hats- ladies who are involved in rural life in Oklahoma and love to support the young people who participate in the Youth Expo. Their 2011 President is Melia Igo, and we talked with her as the 2011 edition of the OYE was getting underway. Melia and her team of ladies have done an impressive job in raising money to support the Youth Expo, and were the Volume Buyer at the Expo in 2010.

Each year during the Expo, the Diamond Hats have held a special "Ladies Only" event called "This One's For the Girls." According to Melia, they have changed the name in 2011 to "This One's From the Girls." She tells us that they are encouraging the girls and everyone coming to the Youth Expo in 2011 to bring canned food to help fill a special cattle trailer that will be taken to the Regional Food Bank and donated to feed youth in Oklahoma whose families need some help. The Diamond Hats are promoting this food drive in cooperatation to the emphasis on this need to donate food to the Food Banks in the state that has been called for by Governor Mary Fallin.

"This One's From the Girls" will happen this year at the Oklahoma Youth Expo at 1:00 PM Tuesday afternoon. (March 15)
