OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Thunder will partner with the American Red Cross during Friday’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats to help provide relief for victims of the wildfires that swept across Oklahoma last week.

The American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma will be stationed outside Section 111 at Oklahoma City Arena during the game. Fans can bid on items autographed by Thunder players, including Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook All-Star jerseys.

Fans also can buy a raffle ticket for $5 that gives them a chance to win a Thunder basketball autographed by the entire team. The proceeds will go to the Disaster Relief Fund, which helps provide shelter, food and emotional support to families after suffering a disaster.
