Thunder to Honor Ingrid Williams With Court Dedication
Thunder, Home-Court Support partnering to dedicate court at FaithWorks in OKC
Oklahoma City, Monday, Feb. 6, 2017 – The Oklahoma City Thunder, the Thunder Cares Foundation and Home-Court Support, the wives and family of Thunder players and coaches, will dedicate a new basketball court on Friday in honor of Ingrid Williams.
Williams, the wife of former Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams, passed away last February following a car accident in Oklahoma City. The court in her memory has been built at FaithWorks of the Inner City, a nonprofit family-centered ministry where Ingrid volunteered.
“We are humbled to be a part of this project, which will serve as a lasting tribute to Ingrid Williams,” said Christine Berney, Thunder vice president of Community Relations. “Her dedication to strengthening families and to improving the lives of children was incredible, and we hope this court brings joy to kids in this community.”
The Thunder blue court is the 15th built or refurbished by the Thunder Cares Foundation in the state of Oklahoma.
Thunder fans and all members of the Oklahoma City Community are welcome to attend the dedication ceremony, which will take place at 4 p.m. at FaithWorks, 1300 S. Byers Ave. in Oklahoma City.
