“As the only city in the nation to have four different pink emergency vehicles, we have been overwhelmed
by the support of the community. We are looking forward to a week full of events and for Tulsa to show
its true color, Pink,” says Judi Grove, Chairwomen for Turn Tulsa Pink.

Wrecking Company, Bank of Oklahoma, BOK Arena, the Tulsa Convention Center, McNellie’s Group, the
Golden Driler, Philtower, the Renaissance Hotel, OU Tulsa and many, many more.
