MidFirst Bank, Thunder to Roll Through Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY, Tuesday, June 9, 2009 – MidFirst Bank and the Oklahoma City Thunder present the “Thunder Summer Caravan”, a series of Thunder Basketball events throughout the state for fans of all ages. The 12-stop tour, which is free and open to the public, will tip-off on Saturday, June 27 when the Thunder plans to debut the team’s newest player(s) to the public at MidFirst Bank (5800 N Western Ave.) in Oklahoma City. The players will be making their first appearance in Oklahoma City following the NBA Draft on June 25.

Each caravan stop will bring the action and atmosphere of a Thunder game day to fans at a local MidFirst Bank banking center. Festivities include a Thunder Sport Court, interactive games, contests, giveaways, an appearance by a member of the Thunder’s broadcast team and complimentary food. Most locations will also feature appearances by Rumble, the Thunder Girls and the Thunder Drummers. The Rolling Thunder Book Bus, presented by American Fidelity Assurance Company, will also make stops at the Summer Caravan. A local MidFirst Bank location will host each caravan stop.
