Atlanta Hawks Fan Appreciation Night Set for Tuesday, April 14

Kia Fan Favorite Award to be presented following the game

Recognizing the loyal and tremendous support they have received this season, Atlanta Hawks players, coaches and the organization will extend special “thanks and appreciation” this Tuesday (April 14) when Fan Appreciation Night activities are held at Philips Arena. Tipoff for the game against the Miami Heat is set for 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:00).

Highlighting the evening’s activities is the presentation of the Kia Fan Favorite Award at the conclusion of the game. One winner has been chosen to participate in the ceremony recognizing the fans favorite Hawks player as determined through an online and in-store vote.

After the award presentation, Hawks players and coaches will again take an active role in the festivities and present lucky fans with their game worn jerseys or an autographed basketball. The winning fan presenting the Kia Fan Favorite Award will also be given his or her choice of which Hawks player’s jersey they will receive.

Everyone in attendance will also be treated to a highlight video featuring all the best plays from the 2008-09 season. Fox Sports South/SportSouth play-by-play man Bob Rathbun is serving as emcee for the post-game events. Visit for more details.
