Well, I would've preferred it to be called the "Centennial Fountain" but I guess everything has to have a sponsor now-a-days.

"Naming the Centennial Fountain


The Oklahoma Centennial Commission will officially name the plaza by the Centennial Fountain on E. Reno Avenue in front of the Harkins Theatres in Bricktown "The United Way Plaza" at 3 p.m. Thursday.
Burns Hargis, vice chairman of Bank of Oklahoma and United Way's 2005 board chair, and Luke Corbett, chairman and CEO of Kerr-McGee and United Way's 2004 campaign chair, will unveil the new United Way Plaza sign.

"It is very fitting that this plaza is named after United Way of Central Oklahoma," Hargis said. "United Way has been critical to our community for 80 years and has raised a combined $315 million to help local people."

The fountain features 40 jets of water and three cascading tiers. United Way's Alexis de Tocqueville donors of $10,000 and more will have their names engraved on bricks around the plaza."
