The 2nd annual Pistons Academy Awards will be held Thursday, March 7, from 7-8:15pm at Birmingham Groves High School. This “Red Carpet” event is the Pistons Academy’s largest event during the year with over 800 people expected to attend.
The night is designed to recognize all the participants in the Pistons Academy winter leagues and clinics. It is also designed to tip-off the summer camp promotional season and introduce the Pistons Academy to perspective players and their families.
“The Pistons Academy is relatively new,” says Geo Thomas, Pistons Director of Fan Development, “This event will be a great way to recognize the kids who are currently playing and give a taste of what we are all about to new players and their families.”
The night will be hosted by Pistons Academy Coach Aaron Smith and will feature appearances from Pistons entertainment teams, Palace Sports and Entertainment President Dennis Mannion as well as a very special appearance by Pistons star player, Brandon Knight. Free prizes will be raffled off and those who attend will be able to sign up for summer camps at a discounted price.
The event is FREE and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30pm and the show will start at 7pm sharp. For more information, or to RSVP, please contact Geo Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org. If attending, please RSVP with the number of seats you wish to acquire.
