Special Events

The Warriors play a great role in the path and development of Opportunity Knocks. Our emphasis on community engagement is reflected in our special fundraising events held throughout the year. The Warriors attend, participate, volunteer and even serve on planning committees for our events.

The OK Chili Cook Off


Come join us in January on the NFL’s conference championship 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.

A Night for Opportunities


With the coming of Spring also comes the OK gala. Watch for the Night for Opportunities gala each year in April. First class food and drinks great live music and exciting auctions highlight this semi-formal affair.

The OK Block Party


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!

The OK Classic


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.
