This is the fourth season of our #BlocksForBucks partnership with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Since kicking off B4B in 2017, our Firm has donated a total of $56,000 to the Thunder Cares Foundation.

This makes us extremely proud because they turn our donations into great programs for kids, such as the Thunder Book Bus/Read to Achieve literacy program and Thunder Fit fitness clinics for middle schoolers.

What is Blocks for Bucks?

Since Phillips Murrah attorneys and staff are big Thunder fans, we decided in 2017 to become an Oklahoma City Thunder Corporate Partner – and Blocks for Bucks was born!

To recognize our home team’s accomplishments in blocking shots, and to tie our promotions into supporting a great community cause, Phillips Murrah donates $100 to the Thunder Cares Foundation for each blocked shot that the Thunder forces at home games during the regular season. At the end of each regular season, Phillips Murrah presents a check for the total amount of the season’s Blocks donations.

Thunder Cares’ community outreach projects are focused on making a positive impact in our community, and we are proud to play a part in supporting them through our Blocks for Bucks partnership.

Over four seasons of our Blocks for Bucks campaign, we have seen some monster blocks, like this classic from the 2019 season! (click video player below)
