Brian and Kari Bennett are long-time Pacers fans. The couple and their son, Joey, are season ticket holders this year and travel all the way from Kokomo, Indiana to attend Pacers games.

Joey is turning 5-years old on Sunday, and to help celebrate, members of Area 55 invited him and his parents to sit in their section to watch and cheer on the Pacers as they take on Philadelphia Friday night.

Joey has been diagnosed with Autism and does not talk, but he loves to cheer on his favorite team with his parents as much as he can. In fact, Joey's very first Pacers game was when he was just 3-months old.

Just before tip-off, members of Area 55 gathered around and sang Happy Birthday to Joey. Sporting his blue and gold proudly, Joey and his parents were surprised by the celebration.

We wish you a very Happy Birthday, Joey!
