Thunder players in the community

At least three Thunder players will assist the organization’s efforts  at today’s Hurricane Ike benefit concert at the Oklahoma City Zoo Amphitheater. Still trying to nail down which players will be in attendance, but No. 4 overall pick Russell Westbrook is one of the players scheduled to be on hand.

The Thunder has partnered with Feed The Children to collect non-perishable food items at today’s event. The Feed The Children truck is scheduled to be in place by 3 p.m., and the players are scheduled to appear from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The first 500 concert-goers who bring two or more non-perishable food items and present a valid concert ticket to the show will receive a voucher for two tickets to the team’s Oct. 14 preseason game at the Ford Center versus the Los Angeles Clippers. Everyone who donates food also will receive a Thunder Blue wristband.
