Thunder star takes to the green to help storm victims
EDMOND, Okla.– A local Thunder star is hosting a two-day charity event in Edmond to help raise money for the victims of the May tornadoes.
Kendrick Perkins hosted a dinner and silent auction Tuesday night at the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame.
Perkins said, “I always try and put my position in other people’s shoes to see what they’re going through. And, you know, down where I’m from in Beaumont, we have hurricanes so similar things have happened to us. You know, my family members and I know how hard it is in a difficult time to get back to where you left off from. So if I’m not at the gym or I’m not with my family, you know, the least I could do was be out here trying to help.”
Wednesday, Perkins was also part of a golf tournament at Oak Tree National in Edmond.
