The Swarm is currently running a special ticket initiative that allows fans to “Buy One, Give One.” With every ticket purchased using the promo code “HERO” on georgiaswarm.com/heroesnight, the Swarm will donate another ticket to local military families, as well as fire and police heroes. The Swarm has partnered with the Wounded Warrior Project, Georgia National Guard Family Support Foundation, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America – Georgia, Crime Stoppers Atlanta and Gwinnett Fire, Sheriffs, and Corrections Departments to make this event possible.
“These men and women do so much for us on a daily basis; this is something that allows us and our fans to show our gratitude and support,” Swarm Co-Owner & President Andy Arlotta said. “We encourage all of our fans to spread the word about this special night so that as many people as possible can take part in showing their appreciation.”
The Swarm is honored to host Brigadier General Joe Jarrard, Adjutant General of the Georgia National Guard, who will participate in the team’s ceremonial ball drop.
Military families can enjoy 20-percent off the gate price for Season Tickets all year long, but this game, the Swarm hopes to provide a game experience to as many of Georgia’s deserving heroes as possible.
Fans are also encouraged to dress up as their favorite Superheroes to further show their support during Heroes Night.
