The following is from the good folks at Downtown OKC Inc.:

From Mar. 4-8, downtown Oklahoma City employees can take advantage of free events, activities and giveaways designed to celebrate downtown OKC’s workforce. Presented by Downtown Oklahoma City, Inc., Downtown Employee Appreciation Week highlights the benefits of working in the city’s central core, while thanking employees and businesses owners for doing business here.

“Downtown businesses bring so much energy and life into the heart of the city,” said Downtown OKC, Inc.’s event coordinator, Elizabeth Newton. “We want to not only thank these businesses for helping our city thrive, but give hard-working employees an opportunity to take a break, network with each other and enjoy the downtown amenities.”
