Wow, the holidays are fully upon us now and I am quickly learning how the holiday season is the ‘fun season’ for the Atlanta Hawks organization.
This year we have some of the NBA’s best teams and players coming through Philips Arena during the month of December, leaving all us NBA fans with a special holiday treat to remember. Longtime members tell me that every year around this time, is when the ‘Big Teams’ come to Atlanta to play. This year seems to be no different….
Whether it was a beat down given to the LA Clippers or the anticipation of Kevin Durant and Westbrook coming to the Highlight Factory, or even the return of Kobe to the Lakers…us Hawks fans are in for a special holiday treat!
All of this fun comes just weeks after Hawks Members were given the exclusive opportunity to have Hawks Holiday Cards made to give out to friends, family, and co-workers during the holiday season. There were 2 dates in which members were invited to the Heineken suite during pre-game warm-ups for a bite to eat and a quick snapshot with a few of Santa’s Atlanta Hawks Cheerleader Elves.
This was such a fun perk, and one that I had been waiting for. 1) We were up stairs in the Heineken Lounge, a place I had never seen before. 2) There were snacks and drinks available. And 3) I was finally up-close and personal with a few of our talented cheerleaders.
Families and individual members, like myself, showed up early to both see the game and take the unique holiday photos. It really turned out to be a great night, networking and laughing with other members and the Hawks staff…The hardest part was trying to keep ones composure while standing next to our great cheerleaders.
Well here it is…Happy Holidays to You and Your Family!
