Mad Ants Announce Shindigz Birthday Spectacular

Fort Wayne, IN (October 6, 2009)- The Fort Wayne Mad Ants and Shindigz are teaming up to throw FREE birthday parties for kids this season! Thanks to Shindigz, all participants will receive FREE tickets to a Mad Ants home game, name recognition on the video board, participation in a high five tunnel, and a spot on the court for the Shindigz Fourth Quarter Dance Party. They will also get to meet a Mad Ants player and have their picture taken with The Mad Ant and the Madame Ants dancers.

“Shindigz’s mission is to ‘bring people together to make life more fun,’ and our new Shindigz Birthday Spectacular is the perfect combination of great fun at a basketball game along with a very special and unique birthday celebration,” said Shindigz President and CEO Shep Moyle. “We look forward to being a part of many special celebrations and helping to create memories for kids throughout northeast Indiana with the Mad Ants.”

"We could not think of a better partner than Shindgiz to bring fun to the families of Fort Wayne. The Shindigz Birthday Spectacular allows the Mad Ants to not only make their family friendly product available to more kids in the area, but it also allows the team to provide an unforgettable birthday experience that the birthday boy or girl will not soon forget. We are incredibly thankful to Shindigz for making this generous offer possible," remarked Mad Ants President and General Manager Jeff Potter.

To add even more excitement to birthday parties, the team will offer additional options in their premium birthday packages, which include locker room tours, a special gift from the team, a pre-game clinic, and a chance to be the team's honorary captain for the night (based upon availability).

Fans can call the Mad Ants office at 260-469-4667 to schedule a party.
