The OK mission was built through connections and funds raised via our special events. Over the years, we have worked to use take the financial pressure off of these events, while also aiming to maximize their potential as a forum to connect with our community. We host 4 marquee annual events, along with many other smaller events throughout the year.
Come join us in January for the NFL’s conference champion-ship Sunday. This annual OK event plays host to an epic chili throw-down, the NFL’s best football and great friends getting together for OK.
With the coming of Spring also comes the OK gala. Watch for the gala each year in April. First class food and drinks, great live music, and exciting auctions highlight this semi-formal affair.
We’ll be dancin’ in the streets, talking loud and drawing a crowd! Come on out for this day-long block party featuring great fun for all ages, full with excellent local food vendors, craft brewers, live music, kid’s entertainment, Warrior entertainment, and great contests. This year, we’re also planning a pre-party fun run! Don’t miss out!
Each September, OK plays host to a coed 14” softball tournament on the fields in Forest Park. In addition to softball, it is a day full of great food, friends and family fun.
