The inaugural “RECHARGE: People, Profit, Planet,” a fund and friend-raising event for Sustainable Tulsa, is scheduled for Friday, Sept, 14 at the historic Cain’s Ballroom, Corey Wren Williams, Executive Director of the local environmental nonprofit, announced today. The event will feature performances from the funk-inflected, socially-conscious Count Tutu, progressive bluegrass band Grazzhopper, and Oklahoma Music Academy Summer Jam band 16/19.
