Rogers State University regrets to announce all of the Nov. 1 appearances for Chef Lidia Bastianich have been cancelled due to transportation problems resulting from recent storms along the East Coast.
University officials have been working for the past several days to secure her trip to Oklahoma, but those efforts were unsuccessful due to the massive backlog resulting from flights cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy.
University staff members have started contacting those patrons who have purchased tickets to offer refunds.
Bastianich, a noted chef whose programs appear on RSU Public TV, was scheduled to make public and private appearances in Bartlesville, Claremore and Tulsa during her visit to Green Country to raise awareness about RSU Public TV and its educational outreach.
The university will explore options to reschedule a future appearance in northeastern Oklahoma.
For information about refunds, please call 918-343-7773.
