In recognition of the 25th Anniversary of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and the team's 2020 City Edition uniform, the Oklahoma City Thunder are providing FREE admission to the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum for all visitors on the 25th of each month month for the entire calendar year (December 25 will be replaced with December 31). It is part of the Thunder's longstanding partnership with the Memorial.
Due to anticipation of increased visitation on Thunder Free days the Museum is not accepting group reservations for these days.
The uniform accentuates the Memorial's mission of educating current and future generations about the Oklahoma City community's response to the tragedy, with a focus on the Oklahoma Standard of Service, Honor and Kindness.
Additionally, the Thunder has designed a new, permanent exhibit, which will emphasize and highlight examples of the Oklahoma Standard and provide valuable learning tools to deliver that message to local, national and global audiences. The uniform further highlights the partnership with the Memorial and honors those who were killed, those who survived, and those changed forever.
"We are thankful for the Thunder's partnership and continuing support of the Memorial's mission," said Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum Executive Director, Kari Watkins. "Providing a free admission day each month, gives us another opportunity to share this uniquely Oklahoma story and for all to Look Back and Think Forward during this 25th Anniversary year."
The team will wear its City Edition uniform a total of at least 10 times throughout the remainder of the season beginning Jan. 9 vs. Houston. Additional dates include Feb. 9 vs. Boston, Feb. 21 vs. Denver, March 6 at New York, March 15 at Washington, March 26 vs. Charlotte, April 1 vs. Phoenix, April 7 vs. Brooklyn, April 10 vs. New York and April 13 vs. Utah.
