OKLAHOMA CITY – A massive EF-5 twister tore through Moore leaving hundreds huddled together on the streets.

The twister first hit the City of Newcastle and quickly spawned into powerful monster, carving a path straight for Moore, Oklahoma.

Hundreds of homes were damaged in that area including two elementary schools that took direct hits.

The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary held the  27th annual Celebration of Hope to remember and honor Oklahomans on the one-year anniversary of the Moore tornadoes.

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin served as Honorary Chair and will helped honor the Chickasaw Nation for their efforts in helping Oklahomans rebuild.

Grammy Award Winning Christian music singer Sandi Patty performed during the luncheon.

KFOR’s Linda Cavanaugh emceed the event.

Money raised from this event will provide necessary funding to continue to support The Salvation Army’s wide variety programs and social services throughout the year.
