How do you raise one million dollars to update Luther’s Wildhorse Park? One burger at a time. While the task might seem daunting, the Friends of the Park organization is determined to move the needle when it comes to raising those funds to transform the park into a community showpiece.
Our Town Eatery, located on Ash, is stepping up to help with a FUNDRAISER on Thursday, July 15, all day long. A portion of the day’s sales, for a burger or anything else on the menu, will be given to the cause. The event is even getting a special boost from Lance West and his Lost In Oklahoma youtube channel.
A self-proclaimed fan of Luther and the Deep Fork District of Route 66, West came back to Luther to visit Our Town Eatery and the park. He showcased the local restaurant and the cause in this awesome piece that debuted last week called “Home Cookin’ with a side of kindness.”
Momentum for park renovation is building, begun in recent years by the Luther Parks Commission and the Friends of the Park fundraising group.
Denielle Cheney, president, Luther Friends of the Park, said she’s grateful for the upcoming fundraiser.
“Our first phase is around $1 million – just for the playground and pavilion that has the basketball court,” she said.
Our Town Eatery is rolling out a new burger for the fundraiser, that will be “cheesier and with more bacon.” It will be named, what else, the Lost in Oklahoma burger!
For more information about plans for the park and how you can get involved, visit the Luther Friends of the Park Facebook page.
Here is a concept plan for the renovations for the park that is east of town, near the BancFirst location and Dollar General, off of Route 66.
Our Town Eatery is located just south of Route 66, across the railroad tracks, at 121 S Ash. Don’t forget to order fries or those fabulous onion rings, and leave room for the carrot cake for dessert.
