23rd Annual Excel Auction Benefits Children's Camps

(Oklahoma City, OK) – Southern Nazarene University celebrated their 23rd EXCEL Auction this past November to help provide support for the EXCEL summer camps on the campus of SNU. This year’s auction raised approximately $92,000 for EXCEL camp scholarships.

Friends of Southern Nazarene University gathered at the Sam Noble Event Center in the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum for this year’s Western themed auction. The Auction includes support through purchases of corporate tables, item donations, and bidding on items at the auction. EXCEL also accepts tax-deductible monetary donations for the camps.

“We, at SNU are thrilled about the long term and continued support for this worthy cause. Many greater Oklahoma City businesses and individuals have sponsored corporate tables and donated items during the history of our EXCEL auction. We thank you all,” said Linda Gresham, SNU’s first lady and EXCEL auction chair.

The enriching, educational, recreational and spiritual experience of EXCEL (Excellence in Christian Education and Leadership) camps are made available each year to children from all social stations because of the money raised over the EXCEL Auction’s history.
