OKLAHOMA CITY – Hobby Lobby is a proud sponsor of Flourish OKC, formerly known as the OKC Passion Awards. This year marked the second annual celebration held in Oklahoma City to identify and support effective ministries who seek to advance the flourishing of the city in body, mind and spirit. The awards celebration took place with 1,000 people in attendance at The Criterion on March 25. Each year, Flourish focuses its energy, attention and voice to highlight one major issue in the city.
