Remington Park Going RED for Women!

Here’s the bad news: In the time that it takes you to read this short blog post, approximately one woman in the US will pass away from some form of heart disease. Roughly one in three women’s deaths can be attributed to it, and 90% of women have one or more risk factors for developing it.

And the good news? The vast majority of us still have plenty of time to raise awareness, change bad habits, and reduce those numbers. And ALL of us have the chance, right now, to pause and appreciate the women in our lives and make an effort to value more the time we have left together.


That’s why every Friday from now until April 19th, on behalf of all women suffering from the menace of heart disease, all of us at Remington Park and the Chickasaw Nation are joining with the American Heart Association to Go Red for Women! By joining together as a team, we’re helping OKC reach towards a goal of $1,200,000 in donations to be raised by the time of the Heart Walk at the Bricktown Ballpark on April 19th to go towards research, treatment, and awareness. Although it’s a silent, sneaky, and easily forgettable danger in our busy day-to-day lives, we can bring about change by joining together and giving a voice to this noble cause.

So know your risk, live healthy, and get involved! Let’s see how far we can go to prevent heart disease in women – not just for ourselves, but for our mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, and loved ones across the globe.

My Big Fat Saved Wedding

Another thrilling tale of redemption came from Remington Park last week, but this one is not about a longshot horse, a close race, or a sudden jackpot. This tale comes from inside the walls of our mezzanine kitchen, where our top-of-the-line culinary staff boils, grills, bakes, and roasts for our many guests and patrons throughout the year.

And so the story goes:

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon on January 11th, 2014. A gorgeous day for a wedding. And that’s just what was planned at Remington Park as decorations filled the halls and music filled the air.

Preparations were being made, bridesmaids were smiling, and the groomsmen shaking hands. Our beautiful bride was beaming and our guests were ready for the ceremony with a slice of one of the world’s greatest treats – wedding cake.

Then disaster struck. The grandmother of the bride made a fatal error stepping out of the car, and in one heart-stopping moment of sheer terror, time stood still. The cake shifted balance and slipped out of control, toppling hopelessly to the cold, hard, unforgiving parking lot concrete below. The moment was too horrible to be real. The cake smashed, the day ruined. That delicately and beautifully arranged icing smeared across the oil-stained pavement.

What could be done? It was simply too late to be saved.

And this, ladies and gentleman, is where our culinary team turned a tragically ill-fated day into a truly amazing story of redemption. Our Remington Park team of group sales heroes and kitchen staff immediately jumped to the rescue and told them to remain calm. Our very own Emily Foy – baker, chef, and professional day-saver – refused to let the dark shadow of a ruined cake be cast over such a bright and beautiful occasion.

Orders were called, errands were run, and the team divided up to jump to the task of saving the day. And so it was, in a matter of hours, Remington Park’s kitchen turned a disaster into a triumph. All hope was not lost for our beautiful bride. 

In fact, on that day, we dare to say hope was gained. Hope and faith in the abilities and ambitions of our very own magic-maker Emily Foy. She measured, planned, strategized, and took action. She baked two more layers of cake, and designed a brand new masterpiece that perfectly replicated the original down to every possible detail.

So here’s to you, Emily, and your team. All of us here at Remington Park acknowledge and admire your quick-thinking, your extraordinary talent, and most of all, your compassion. You chose to take a challenge that day not because your job demanded it, but because you refused to let a bride’s wedding day be dampened by the disastrous event of a ruined wedding cake.

Remington Park Hosts 2013 Warmth 4 Winter Coat Drive Kick Off

30 years ago, OKC’s most beloved investigative journalist Brad Edwards conceived of the idea to spend the coldest time of the year keeping others warm. Being a man who spent a his entire professional career fighting for the less fortunate, the elderly, and the working class, it seemed only natural for him.

And now although the man is gone, his idea lives on throughout OKC, kept alive by his daughter Ashton, the members of News Channel 4, the Salvation Army, and most recently, Paycom and Remington Park.

From 3:30 to 7:30pm today, Remington Park is proud to host the kickoff of the Warmth 4 Winter coat drive with an afternoon full of holiday cheer. While you’re here, bring the family along and enjoy the afternoon of Holidazzle festivities at Remington Park, including train rides, hot cocoa, pictures with Santa, and much more from our friends at Paycom!

Most importantly, we encourage all our fans to bring new or gently used coats of all sizes to Remington Park today to donate to the Salvation Army, who will work to get them in the hands of those who need them most.

If you know anyone in need of a winter coat, contact that Salvation Army at (405) 246-1100.

If your coat box is full, call (405) 443-7214 to schedule a pick up.
