14 Days Until the Atlanta Hawks’ Season
We are counting down the days until the Hawks’ season-opener in Dallas by giving you 50 things to be excited about this year. With 14 days left, today’s reason is…
Friday Night Lights
This year’s version of the Hawks’ “Paint The Town” event, an annual event in which the entire Hawks team, cheerleaders and staff members appear at and interact with fans in a social setting, is an appearance at two high school football games in metro Atlanta on Friday night.
Coach Mike Budenholzer, Al Horford, Paul Millsap, Gustavo Ayon, Jared Cunningham, Royal Ivey, John Jenkins and Dennis Schröder will appear at the Alpharetta vs. Chattahoochee game in Chattahoochee, while Jeff Teague, Lou Williams, Pero Antic, Elton Brand, DeMarre Carroll, Eric Dawson, James Johnson, Shelvin Mack and Mike Scott will appear at the Stephenson vs. Miller Grove game at Halford Stadium.
Fans will have a chance to meet and interact with the staff and cheerleaders as they do every year, and the Hawks staff always has fun at the event.
Players and staff at the Chattahoochee game will also be wearing pink in support of the school’s “Pink Out” fundraiser for Northside Hospital Breast Care Cancer Center.
Honestly this is going to be a really cool site to see. The Hawks players will be out supporting high school football, which is one of the most popular events in the region.
