Chet Holmgren as a new member of the OKC community couldn't wait to bring the same heartfelt tradition to his new city. On Tuesday night, the rookie hosted foster families Thanksgiving feast.
Eight foster families from Citizens Caring for Children, an organization that serves children living in foster care in central Oklahoma and surrounding counties, made their way to the Thunder business office for the festive dinner.
Holmgren and her family approached the evening with the same enthusiasm and anticipation as they would for their annual Minneapolis parties, with everyone contributing to the preparations. In fact, the Holmgren sisters were responsible for the intricate centerpieces that decorated each table, as well as the array of delicious pies at the end of the buffet line.
The savory aroma of turkey, gravy and green beans greeted each family as they entered the room. On each table, there were jars of crayons next to coloring books, an idea of Chet's to keep the children entertained before dinner began.
Holmgren is endearing himself to Thunder fans after being selected in the 2022 NBA Draft and then missing the entire season with a broken foot. He is showing he wants to do community by hosting this dinner and sharing his time with foster families.
