TULSA, Oklahoma -- On Saturday night, Oklahoma honored those who make a real difference. Governor Mary Fallin helped recognize 27 non-profit agencies across the state.

The Oklahoma Center for non-profits hosted the One Awards at Southern Hills Country Club. And our Impact Team's Jennifer Loren and Alex Cameron were honored to emcee the event together for the second year in a row.

The "top award" went to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.

"We are completely overwhelmed at the notion of being recognized in this way," said Museum President Chuck Schroeder. "So many, many great non-profits in the state of Oklahoma."

The top honor also comes with $10,000.

The other non-profits didn't walk away empty-handed. In all, $160,000 was given away.
