In a partnership with Serge Ibaka, the Thunder will hold a special UNICEF Night against the Pelicans on Friday.
The evening will includes a special auction outside Section 120 where fans can bid on the jersey Ibaka wears for the game. The winner will also meet Ibaka following the game as well. All proceeds go to UNICEF and the Thunder Cares Foundation.
“I lost my mom when I was 7 years old and I had to be separated form my dad for long periods as a child,” said Ibaka in a release. “I know how it feels to grow up without your parent’s guidance every day. That’s why when I started working with Unicef I knew I wanted to focus on orphaned kids. This is a very important project for me and I am sure the Oklahoma community will understand. I want to thank them in advance for their generosity.”
Ibaka will also donate the shoes he wore in the game for a later auction benefiting UNICEF.
