OU Students Raise $7,500 for Diabetes
April 22, 2013 — Harold Hamm Diabetes Center has received a donation of more than $7,500 from the students of the Energy Management Program at the University of Oklahoma Michael F. Price College of Business. Students raised the money by raffling a portion of the earnings collected from a single oil derrick donated by Continental Resources, Inc., the nation’s largest energy and natural gas production company. The winner received a quarter of a percent of an overriding royalty interest in an existing producing wellbore.
Mr. Harold Hamm, CEO of Continental and benefactor of the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center, made the keynote address at the 55th Annual Energy Management Program Spring Awards Banquet where the raffle took place. The awards banquet also recognized students in the program receiving scholarships and graduating seniors entering the field of energy production.
The raffle was entirely led and initiated by students in the program who wanted to honor Hamm’s pioneering work and dedication to the oil and gas industry. They chose the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center as the beneficiary of the raffle to recognize Hamm’s philanthropic efforts as well.
