Leroy Burdine, a resident of The Fountains at Canterbury in Oklahoma City, celebrated his 90th birthday with a festive commemoration, thanks to a party thrown in his honor by The Fountains at Canterbury staff and the Oklahoma City Thunder Girls.
Birthday party attendees enjoyed a visit from two of the Oklahoma City Thunder Girls, Stephanie and Addie. The Thunder Girls signed posters, posed for photos with residents and shared stories about their time with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The celebration also featured music and a smorgasbord including chicken wings donated by Buffalo Wild Wings, cupcakes, fresh fruit and more. Residents and staff joined together for a collective rendition of “Happy Birthday to You” and took turns giving Leroy their best wishes.
