OKLAHOMA CITY – Cold, blustery weather couldn’t freeze out the fun of HoliDazzle, presented by Paycom and held At Science Museum Oklahoma.

Paycom created the HoliDazzle event to support the Brad Edward’s Warmth 4 Winter coat drive benefiting The Salvation Army of Central Oklahoma.

Brad Edwards of NewsChannel 4 created Warmth for Winter with The Salvation Army more than 30 years ago.

Over the years, the program has transformed into one of the largest coat drives in the state.

Paycom and KFOR have a proud history of supporting The Salvation Army of Central Oklahoma.

This year alone, Paycom donated 36,000 canned goods to The Salvation Army food pantry during September’s National Payroll Week and in July, Paycom donated $10,000 for The Salvation Army’s Buck$ 4 Bikes campaign.

Last Christmas, during The Salvation Army’s annual kettle campaign, Paycom gave a record-breaking donation of $65,000, the largest employee-and-company-combined gift the nonprofit ever has received.

Visitors who donated a new or used coat got $5 off admission to Science Museum Oklahoma is a science museum in Oklahoma City.

The museum is home to the Kirkpatrick Planetarium and a number of specialized galleries.

Santa Clause made an appearance and took pictures with children.

NewsChannel 4 brought a satellite truck to show visitors how satellite technology helps broadcasters and hot chocolate and crepes were provided by Crepe Brewers.

Along with Paycom and NewsChannel 4, Two Men and A Truck and Legacy Cleaners are also proud to sponsor Brad Edwards Warmth 4 Winter.

Anyone in need of a winter coat is encouraged to call The Salvation Army at (405) 246-1100.
