A group of ladies attend last year’s Buttercup Bash.
Here’s something with real heart, just in time to share with your Valentine! Because of their heartfelt concern for the welfare of at-risk boys, the Junior Women’s Association of Tulsa Boys’ Home (JWA) will present their 4th annual Buttercup Bash on Saturday, February 11 from 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. The fundraiser that benefits Tulsa Boys’ Home will be held at The Broadway in downtown Tulsa, located at 720 S. Kenosha Ave.
The theme of this year’s exciting Buttercup Bash is “Casino Royale,” and includes a silent auction full of gifts just perfect for Valentine’s Day or other occasions, a premier wine pull, and delicious food, drinks, dancing and casino game tables.
“I’ve gone every year so far,” said TBH Executive Director Gregg Conway, “and just had a blast every time! The crowd grows larger every year, it’s a ton of fun, a great ‘date night,’ and a wonderful way to enjoy an evening out and benefit the boys who receive healing and new hope at Tulsa Boys’ Home.”
The Junior Women’s Association was formed in 1938 to buy bread and butter for the boys at Tulsa Boys’ Home, and quickly earned the nickname ‘the Buttercups.” So the Buttercup Bash is a perfect name for a fundraiser produced by such a dedicated group of women.
The Junior Women’s Association is an auxiliary support group of Tulsa Boys’ Home that spends quality time with the boys and raises thousands of dollars each year for TBH through events such as Christmas card sales and the Buttercup Bash. Over the past few years, the Buttercup Bash has grown to become the largest source of monetary support for Tulsa Boys’ Home provided by JWA.
Individual tickets for the fundraiser and sponsorships are still available. Sponsorships begin at $500, and admission is only $60 for a single or $100 per couple, which includes dinner, dessert, dancing and more!
The Junior Women’s Association thanks Crown Products, Inc. and Unit Corporation for their support as presenting sponsors. Additional sponsors include USA Drug and Zach Downing Productions.

Tulsa Boys’ Home has offered healing and hope to more than 11,800 troubled Oklahoma boys since 1918. TBH helps 11 to 18 year old boys with emotional, behavioral, and substance abuse problems, and serves about 176 boys each year. It is a United Way agency.
