Find out more about CNG vehicles
Find out more about compress natural gas (CNG) vehicles in two upcoming events, co-sponsored by the Bob Hurley Fleet Department… Bill Jones and Tom Morris, with our Fleet Department, will be speaking at a breakfast meeting, co-sponsored by the Sand Springs area chamber of commerce. The event will be open to the public and will be held at 7:30 pm Monday, August 20th at the Crescent Café, located at 3417 S 113th W Ave in the Sand Springs/Prattville area. Jones and Morris will be speaking on using natural gas as a fuel source to reduce emissions and to offer a more affordable solution to using gasoline or diesel. We will have a question and answer period after the breakfast to cover the topic of CNG conversions, bi-fuel vehicles, natural gas powered buses and transit vehicles. We expect several area business representatives at the event. Next month, we will be participating in a meeting sponsored by INCOG to be held Sept, 19 at the Schusterman Learning Center, at the OU-Tulsa campus located near 41st and Yale. The Indian Nations Council of Governments (INCOG) is a voluntary association of local and tribal governments in the Tulsa metropolitan area in northeast Oklahoma. Established in 1967, INCOG is one of 11 Councils of Governments in the State of Oklahoma, and one of several hundred regional planning organizations across the country. The topic of that meeting will also focus on using CNG to fuel fleet vehicles.

Turn Tulsa Pink
Hi friends! It’s Julie Chin and I’m taking over the newsletter this week!
Bob doesn’t know I’m writing this. That’s because he isn’t one for attention. He never wants, needs or expects credit for his good deeds, but I wanted to tell you about the amazing act of kindness I witnessed thanks to him recently.
It all unfolded on a warm late April morning. That would be the day I would have the great opportunity to connect Bob to another friend of mine, Judi Grove.
Chances are you’ve seen Judi Grove around town. It’s hard not to notice her, especially when she’s dressed up in a hot pink wig and tutu and answering to the name “Tallulah”. Tallulah is the mascot for Turn Tulsa Pink, and the lady underneath that fun get-up is Judi. She’s the organizer of Turn Tulsa Pink, a grassroots charity raising money for women and children in the Tulsa area who have been affected by any type of cancer. For Judi this is a labor of love, 100% of the proceeds go to these survivors. Judi and her committee members have been hard at work fundraising this year with several Turn Tulsa Pink related events, including a benefit concert at Cain’s, “Turn Tulsa Pink in the Rink” courtesy of the Tulsa Oilers and a “Run for Pink 5k”, in which over 1000 runners took part. The list goes on and on, and the effort culminates in a weeklong display of support October 20-27th when all of Tulsa is encouraged to “turn pink”.
So how did Bob Hurley come into the picture? Through his connection to me and a simple e-mail.
You see, on that warm April morning I opened my e-mail to learn that Judi needed help. Her “Turn Tulsa Pink” car had broken down, was undrivable and the work she suspected it needed was expansive and expensive. Since we’re friends, she turned to me and asked if I might have any ideas on how she could get it back on the road (and get Turn Tulsa Pink back on track). I quickly e-mailed Bob and within 2 minutes of hitting the send button, my phone rang. It was Bob. He knew Judi’s story and her good deeds toward others and felt, without hesitation that he would like to get her taken care of and back on the road. So he hatched a plan. He sent one of his tow trucks out to get her car, he’d have his experts look it over, and ultimately he ended up fixing it for her out of the kindness of his own heart.
So, it was on that day, that Bob’s connection with Turn Tulsa Pink was born… and their relationship continues to grow. I’m so proud to tell you Bob Hurley Auto Family is the presenting sponsor of Turn Tulsa Pink’s upcoming inaugural golf tournament: The Putting Fore Pink Golf Classic. This tournament is will generate scholarships for four Tulsa county college seniors or undergrads who have been affected by cancer personally or through a family member.
We’d love for you to join us too! There is still time to sign up. The golf tournament is scheduled for Monday, June 18 at Meadow Brook Country Club, and Turn Tulsa Pink is looking for more golfers. If you’re interested in learning more and joining us on Monday the 18th, check out http://www.turntulsapink.org/forms/PFPinfo.pdf.
We hope to see you on the greens to help Turn Tulsa Pink on Monday, June 18th. And if you want to see Bob turn a pretty shade of pink, I guess you can ask him about his Turn Tulsa Pink connection… but don’t tell him you heard it from me!
