Event description

Description

On Thursday, May 9, 2019, OKC Metro Alliance, Inc. will be hosting its annual Beans and Cornbread luncheon at St. Luke’s Event Center, 222 NW 15th Street, Oklahoma City starting at 11:30 am. The luncheon benefits residential programs that assist Oklahomans who want to recover from substance abuse. Firstep has been providing residential recovery services for 30 years in Oklahoma City. An art sale will be held featuring artwork by Firstep residents beginning at 10 am.

Our theme this year is “Live, Laugh & Recover.” Learning to have fun again is an important part of the recovery process. The luncheon will be fun, surprising, and inspiring. We don’t sell tickets to this event. We see this as a wonderful opportunity for everyone in the community to come together and learn more about helping Oklahomans in need.

Your donation builds on the solid foundation that helps Oklahoma City thrive, providing hope, dignity, and care to people in need.

Our keynote speaker is Argus Hamilton sponsored by OKC Comedy Fest and Mike McAuliffe


Who is Argus Hamilton, and why is everybody quoting him?

Meet the funniest topical comedian in America, the man Robin Williams once called "the Will Rogers of the Baby Boom." Argus Hamilton's daily column of jokes on the news, now carried in over 100 newspapers across the United States, is also read and heard by millions on the Internet and on radio stations across the country.


Argus James Hamilton III is the son, grandson and great-grandson of Methodist ministers in the South. A proud graduate of the University of Oklahoma and now based in Los Angeles, Argus brings an unusual perspective to the news from Washington and around the country. "I'm an English Monarchist and a Southern secessionist," Argus jokes. "Let's see Rush Limbaugh get to the right of that."


Argus Hamilton performs at corporate, political and charity events around the country. When he's in Los Angeles, he can be seen working out the latest material nightly at The Comedy Store in Hollywood.
Argus is regularly quoted by daily newspapers including the San Francisco Chronicle, the Los Angeles Times and the Seattle Times, by weekly business papers including the Orange County Business Journal, by Time magazine, by sports columnists around the country, and by radio hosts who took a cue from the late Paul Harvey, one of Argus’ longtime fans and admirers.


Argus was honored by Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry as the official comedian of the Oklahoma Centennial and appeared with the governor in the 2007 Tournament of Roses Parade.


You can read Argus Hamilton's outrageously funny humor column on the Internet Tuesday through Friday and Sunday -- at www.argushamilton.com/today.htm.
