Attorneys and staff at Phillips Murrah are huge Thunder fans, and to recognize our home team’s accomplishments in blocking shots, the Firm is donating $100 to Thunder Cares for each blocked shot that the Thunder forces at home games during the regular season.

“This partnership with the Oklahoma City Thunder accomplishes two goals,” explained Dave Rhea, Marketing Director at Phillips Murrah. “One, we love supporting the Thunder team, and it’s a delight to have our brand associated with such a capable and celebrated organization. Two, through this partnership we’re able to help fund the good works that Thunder Cares does, which fits perfectly with our commitment to the community.”

The Thunder Cares Foundation helps support the team’s community outreach projects, including Thunder-themed basketball courts in parks, schools and community centers across Oklahoma, as well as learning labs and activity rooms at organizations like the Boys and Girls Club of Oklahoma County, City Rescue Mission and Positive Tomorrows.

“Phillips Murrah is proud to partner with the Thunder Cares Foundation,” said Phillips Murrah President and Managing Partner, Thomas G. Wolfe. “The Thunder has done so much in Oklahoma. We’re glad to join in their efforts.”

Phillips Murrah began a our partnership with the Thunder Cares Foundation on Nov. 22, 2017, which was the the first match-up of the season against the Golden State Warriors. The video clip below of one of KD’s shots getting blocked is an example of the highlights featured on the Blocks for Bucks landing page, featured on the OKC Thunder website.

The Blocks for Bucks landing page also features updates throughout the season that include a Blocks Counter and a total amount of funds raised.

During the course of the 2017-2018 season, Blocks for Bucks raised $17,000 to benefit the Thunder Cares Foundation.

On April 11, 2018, the final game of the regular 2017-2018 season, representatives from Phillips Murrah participated in a check presentation ceremony at center court in the Chesapeake Energy Arena prior to the game. The total amount presented to the Thunder Cares Foundation includes the total leading up to the final game that appeared on the check, $16,700, plus the amount for three blocks that occurred during the game.

On April 11, 2018, Phillips Murrah President Tom Wolfe, Executive Director Michelle Munda, Marketing Director Dave Rhea and Controller Stephanie Oseland present the Blocks for Bucks check to Erin Oldfield, OKC Thunder Community Relations Director.
