After a fire destroyed BurnCo and severely damaged Farm Bar nearly two weeks ago, Tulsans came together to support these two local staples in the community. The BOK Center and ASM Global Acts recognized the importance of philanthropic support and quickly developed a fundraising opportunity at the Eric Church concert held on February 19.
ASM Global’s enhanced corporate social responsibility platform, ASM Global Acts, is a renewed and refocused commitment to global sustainability and equity, said a press release about the effort. In addition to establishing a more centralized and intentional corporate social responsibility program, ASM Global will focus its efforts on meaningful actions and measurable results at the corporate and community levels.
Without the generous support of over 12,000 concertgoers at Eric Church’s concert, this fundraising opportunity would not have been possible. In addition to donations, ASM Global Acts and BOK Center help further support the cause by rounding up the total so the donation amount equals $3,000. All proceeds from the donations will go to the employees of the two companies who lost their income due to the fire.

“We are incredibly proud to support the Tulsa community in times of need,” said Bryan Crowe, vice president and general manager of the BOK Center, in the statement. “We believe it is our responsibility to be proactive in supporting to make the community we serve a better place now and in the future. BOK Center and ASM Global Acts recognize the importance of investing in people and strengthening communities.
Two local companies, Aspen Electric and Abundant Staffing Solutions, also wanted to show their support. They collectively matched the amount raised and contributed $3,000, bringing the total donation to $6,000.
“We can’t thank everyone who donated to the Eric Church concert and the BOK Center enough for their show of support for your fellow Okies,” said BurnCo owner Adam Myers. “It came unsolicited and as an act of humanity that feels genuine and genuine and is truly appreciated by myself, BurnCo and Tulsa as a whole.”
