Not every promotion is themed with Superheroes and played for laughs, some of the most valuable are those that enforce the role of community ambassadors team play like this 25th Anniversary promotion in Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma City Dodgers will retire the #168 and wear a commemorative patch to honors the victims. April 19th marks the 25th anniversary. The number signifies the number of lives lost in the attack.
“We want to use our megaphone to celebrate organizations that are doing powerful things”
25 years ago the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building was bombed and it shook the country. OKC was devastated at the loss of life and the destruction of their downtown. It has forever become part of the fabric of the city.
The team has a season-long initiative to commemorate the anniversary and it looking to celebrate OKC organization all year long.
