  The City rededicates the BOK Center for its fifth anniversary.

Mayor Bartlett recognized former mayor Bill LaFortune and former County Commissioner Bob Dick for their work on developing Vision 2025, of which the BOK Center was a part.

“I always said, hey, as a citizen, I’m so very proud of it,” LaFortune said, “but it means a lot today, to actually be on the placard, as one of the people that helped lead the effort for this.”

The venue has brought in more than $10 million in sales tax for Tulsa.

In the five years it’s been open, the BOK Center has grossed more than $100 million in ticket sales.
