Friday, June 7, 7 p.m.
It’s a brand new event, but it already has a substantial history behind it. Vintage Tulsa: The Oil Barons Ball makes its debut Friday, June 7, and it promises to become the signature summer event of the Tulsa Historical Society. The fundraiser for THS and its programs will be at the society’s home, the Travis Mansion, constructed in 1919 by oilmen the Travis Brothers at the height of Tulsa’s oil boom and “golden age” at 2445 S. Peoria Ave. The event will have music, entertainment, dinner, dancing and remembrances of Tulsa’s past and emergence as a modern, sophisticated city. Tickets are $100 each, and sponsorships are available. Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and live jazz open the evening at 7 p.m. followed by dinner and festivities.
