TU Uncorked Raises Over $700,000 for Scholarships Since 2004 


TU Uncorked welcomed more than 500 guests to the Donald W. Reynolds Center on June 5 for the 11th annual University of Tulsa Alumni Association wine festival. Since its inception, the event has raised more than $700,000 for the TU Alumni Association Scholarship Fund. For a full list of 2015 sponsors, click here.

Scholarships are awarded to Tulsa-area students based on financial need and academic qualifications.  Since 2007, the scholarship has been awarded seven times to five different recipients. Most recently, Curtis French received the scholarship for three consecutive years. He completed his master of accountancy degree this year and accepted a full-time position with Phillips 66 in Bartlesville.  

This was the first year Uncorked was held on the TU campus. The event included a wine pull and silent and live auctions, featuring items such as a TU football game package, dinner with TU men’s basketball coach Frank Haith, an Oklahoma winery tour and custom bracelets from Rustic Cuff, a line of popular jewelry owned and operated by TU alumna Jill Donovan. Kendra Scott Jewelry sponsored a popular jewelry pull, donating 50 pieces to the event. The jewelry pull sold out in nine minutes.
