• Blue Whale Catoosa – Blue Tie Affair 2017

The 7th Annual Route 66 Legendary Blue Whale Fundraiser “A Blue Tie Affair” will be held on Thursday May 4, 2017 from 5-8pm along the shores of the Blue Whale in Catoosa.

The Blue Tie Affair is our only fundraiser. The fundraiser event is happening along the shores of the legendary route 66 Blue Whale located at 2680 N Hwy 66 just past Reasors’ Grocery in Catoosa Oklahoma. Molly’s Landing will once again provide onsite preparation of a filet steak dinner. Silent auction items will be available. Wine and beer will be available for purchase.

The theme for this years event is Hawaiian. We are hoping Elvis comes to sing “Blue Hawaii”. Feel free to come in your grass skirts and Hawaiian shirts. We are also planning to have leis available so come to the Blue Whale and get a lei. Limited seating is available. Individual tickets are $50.00 per person. We have a new tie dye T-shirt that will be available to purchase at the shack or on line.

You can purchase your tickets on line by going to the Store link above or they are also available at the Blue Whale Shack.

Picture yourself on a perfect spring evening, the smell of a Grilled Steak wafting through the air and music playing in the background. And the sense of your contribution making a difference in a community that deserves recognition for the unique artifact that resides in a pond in Oklahoma. This is truly “Made in Oklahoma” material in its most apparent form.

The evening’s donation opportunities will include silent auction items such as restaurant gift cards, hotel stays, Day Spa experience, and many other items. Onsite dinner will include a Molly’s Landing filet steak grilled to perfection, baked potato, salad and dinner roll followed by Molly’s famous bread pudding.

The evening is sure to be a success with the help of donations through the fundraising efforts of the FINS of the Blue Whale, a sub-committee of the Catoosa Arts and Tourism Society (CATS). The FINS of the Blue Whale help support the maintenance of the Legendary Route 66 Blue Whale, through donations from visitors, gift shop purchases and fundraising efforts during The Blue Tie Affair. The funds go toward the preservation of the Blue Whale and maintenance of the site. Sponsorship opportunities are available through Catoosa Arts and Tourism Society.
