Annual Omelette Party to showcase Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s film program
Guests can expect gourmet egg dishes and, of course, omelettes prepared by favorite local chefs and restaurants, with all proceeds benefiting the museum.
“Lights, Camera, EGG-tion!” will highlight the museum’s film program, which brings independent, foreign and classic films to Oklahoma City, and its importance in fulfilling the mission of enriching lives through the visual arts.
The annual event is set for 7 p.m. to midnight March 9 at the Coca-Cola Bricktown Events Center. Guests at the Omelette Party can expect gourmet egg dishes and, of course, omelettes prepared by local favorites like Chef Ken Bradford, Chef Tom Lienke, The Restaurants at Chesapeake and VZD’s Restaurant & Club.
The event also will feature live music from The Stars and DJ Brian Smith with Chameleon Entertainment, an eclectic art raffle with works from more than 60 Oklahoma artists, and an open bar.
In 2012, the Omelette Party raised more than $100,000 to support the museum’s programs and exhibitions.
“We want to exceed what we did last year and we have the support of the best chefs and local artists to help us do that,” said Omelette Party chairman Mike Morgan in a news release.
Chairwoman Lea Morgan added in the release, “Every sponsorship, event and raffle ticket sold helps the Museum to continue to bring amazing exhibits, grow its permanent collection and fund its programs.”
