Here at HeyDay, we are passionate about people. We also love fun and celebrations, so what better way to say thank you to the wonderful organizations that are making a difference in the OKC Metro by celebrating them with what we call, Causes for Celebration. During the month of April, we will be partnering with four local nonprofit organizations making an impact on the lives of Oklahomans. Each week, we feature one of these amazing organizations with the goal to increase awareness, collect in-kind items or monetary donations and show our support by lending a hand where help is needed! Each Tuesday of their designated week HeyDay will host a “give back night’ at both our Norman & Bricktown locations. Come by for an evening of fun activities and dinner with the added benefit that 20% of everything purchased when you drop your receipt in the Causes for Celebration bucket is given directly to the featured organization! You’re not limited to just one night though! Come by any time though out the week with a donation and get a special thank you gift from us!
