Dinner on the 50
One of a Kind Event
The first annual Dinner on the 50 began with guests entering The Palace on the Prairie, aka Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, walking through the Switzer Center and onto Owen Field for a one-of-a-kind experience throughout the evening.
Coach Barry Switzer & Coach Bob Stoops offered the VIP pre-game coaches’ talk as guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before walking onto Owen Field. Guests experienced an entire field of delights, including exhibitions by Oklahoma TaskForce-1 handlers and their GZ canines, cocktail bars like none other, beautiful dinner tables, an unforgettable dinner by Chef Anthony Compagni, and music by the incredible Manhattan Band. Oh, what a night!
2023 Dates TBA
The next event is scheduled for Summer of 2023 and if you think 2022 was a party, just wait until you hear about some of the surprises we have in store! It’s hard to imagine a more exclusive, one-of-a-kind experience, but you can be sure we will be taking it up a notch! Make plans to attend an evening out at the “Palace on the Prairie” and let us know if you’d like to be among the first to receive all the details. This fundraiser will sell out fast!
Why Dinner on the 50?
Dinner on the 50 benefits the Search and Rescue K9 and first responder training program. Disaster can strike quickly and has no respect for collegiate affiliation, economic status, ethnic background, or any other factor, Ground Zero prepares for every contingency.
GZ Emergency Training Center ensures expertly trained search and rescue K9 teams stand ready for immediate action. Ground Zero K9s are trained from birth, for aid in the aftermath of disasters, such as structural collapses, hurricanes, tornados, fires, other unimaginable catastrophes, or when a loved one goes missing, saving lives and comforting those directly affected. The support of our generous donors allows Ground Zero to provide these heroic K9s to first responders at no cost.
