Phillips Murrah staff members were given the chance to test their creativity and help raise money for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma on Oct. 31 at the Firm’s annual Halloween Party.
Contestants competed to win the annual costume contest, and Phillips Murrah raised $580 from those in attendance for Firm’s Annual Harvest Food Drive fundraising campaign.
Rachel Schones, Receptionist, won First Place by a landslide with her pregnant nun look. Second Place was awarded to Cristal Bazemore, Administrative Assistant, dressed as an alien, and Third Place was won by Tess Bromme, who dressed as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.
“I enjoy dressing up every year,” Schones said. “It’s fun to see the creativity of the different costumes each year.
“I was very surprised this year when I heard that I won first place. I wasn’t sure what people would think about the pregnant nun costume, but it was a fun day.”
Employees dress up to compete for a popular vote in hopes of winning a cash prize.
“A lot of people didn’t know it was me and some people were creeped out,” Bazemore said. “It was the best ever, seeing people’s reactions!”
Phillips Murrah partners with the Oklahoma County Bar Association to support their annual Harvest Food Drive, which all proceeds are donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.
