TULSA, Okla. — UPDATE: Nana Rose’s Italian Bakery and Play it Again Sports in south Tulsa raised $1,200 for the families of the Tishomingo crash victims.
“We are so glad with the turnout we had. It was awesome to be able to help in someway. This will not be the last thing we do for our community. We hope to continue to be able to make a difference in the future,” shared Samantha Short, owner of Nana Rose’s Bakery.
Samantha Short just opened her family-run, authentic, Italian bakery in south Tulsa, earlier this month. FOX23 captured the ribbon cutting on opening day. Short was blown away by the turnout.
“We sold out in three hours and had to close early,” said Short.
“I’ve always wanted this to be more than just a bakery. Before I opened my business I was a first responder and I worked many accidents involving children and those would always hit me hard. When we first heard about the fatal accident in Tishomingo, I knew I wanted to do something for the families,” shared Short.
Short’s mother owns a store called Play it Again Sports only a couple doors down from the bakery. Mom and daughter have decided to hold a fundraiser for the families of the victims who perished in the Tishomingo crash on Tuesday.
10% of all sales will go directly to the families who lost loved ones in the deadly wreck.
Short is also inviting other businesses, like food trucks to come out on Saturday for the fundraiser.
Short is hoping to show Tishomingo that Tulsa is supporting the Oklahoma community during this devastating tragedy.
