Special guests of the Indiana Pacers couldn’t wait to try S.A.F.E.(Students And Families Experiencing) Archery™ with their favorite players during this year’s VIP party at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN.
One highlight of the night that drew a crowd included a little bit of playful brotherly competitiveness between Pacer’s forward center Tyler Hansbrough and guard Ben Hansbrough. Not wanting to be outdone at archery by his older brother, Ben couldn’t resist an opportunity to step it up a notch and successfully shot an apple off the head of a S.A.F.E. Archery™ employee!
Family and friends continued to cheer each other on through the evening as they lined up to take a turn at trying to hit the moving targets. Even the youngest participants were able to draw back the 16# bow with ease.
Too excited to sit on the sidelines and watch, Boomer, the Pacers Mascot, also joined in a competitive round of hover-ball target shooting with SAFE Archery™ Founder, John Jackson.
What better way for John to spend his 50th birthday, than sharing what he loves most? Happy Birthday John!
