We're 'Mad' about Lutheran Night on March 1

Last week, I told you about some big doings coming up at the end of the month when Concordia Lutheran High School hosts the 2014 Indiana Lutheran Schools Athletic Association (ILSAA) State Basketball Tournament. Part of the festivities will be Mad Ants Lutheran Night at the Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, March 1. The teams playing in the ILSAA tourney will be recognized on court when the Mad Ants host the Iowa Energy. The tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. And we're in a bonus situation here. For every discounted ticket purchased in advance, $2 will go toward Lutheran Social Services of Indiana, a fine organization that provides a wide variety of programs that benefit a broad spectrum of people in our community. Here are the winning points: Mad Ants Lutheran Night at the Coliseum on Saturday, March 1. Mad Ants vs. the Iowa Energy at 7:30 p.m. Teams playing in the ILSAA tourney will be honored on the court. Everyone pre-ordering a ticket for Lutheran Night will receive a special price of $8 for upper-level seating ($10 at the box office.) $2 from every pre-ordered ticket will go to LSSI. The deadline to pre-order, receive the special discount, and benefit LSSI is Monday, February 24. Tickets can be pre-ordered through your church office, by calling Dennis Herman of LSSI at (260) 426-3347), or by calling the Mad Ants office at (260) 469-4667, ext. 106. You can also order online, or mail your order to the Mad Ants, Attn: Jon Doust, 1910 St. Joe Center Road, Suite 61, Fort Wayne, IN 46825.This is a win-win-win situation. See a professional basketball game, celebrate our Lutheran churches and schools, and donate to a very worthy organization that's doing a lot of good work. So, pre-order your tickets right now. Then, on March 1, load your family and friends into the car, and come out to support the ILSAA, our churches and schools, and LSSI. Let's let 'em know we're in the house.
