Who We Support
The Heroes Ball is a fundraising and community awareness event for the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy (OICA) that honors Oklahoma’s heroes for children. Honoring advocates who transform the lives of children and youth in our state is an important part of OICA’s culture, establishing a bar for excellence for the years to come. Over 400 people come together to also celebrate OICA’s work to improve the health, safety and well-being of all of Oklahoma’s children, with a special emphasis on those in the state’s care and those growing up amidst poverty, violence, abuse and neglect, disparities, or other situations that put their lives and future at risk. The Heroes Ball raises necessary operational dollars for OICA to achieve this mission.
