FOR MASSIVE Illawarra Hawks fans it was a dream come true.
Pat Ellem entered the Illawarra Mercury’s giveaway for an ultimate VIP experience as the mighty Hawks take on arch rival Sydney Kings at the WEC on Monday night.
Pat’s named was selected randomly after correctly guessing the favourite superhero of the Illawarra Mercury’s own Hawk was indeed Batman.
As a result, the family will get courtside tickets to the game, Hawks tops, pre-game function food and drink, drinks vouchers and meet players and coaching staff.
“It was a huge surprise, very exciting …. I had to message my son and ring my husband,’’ Pat said.
“I’ve had a hard time for my health lately so this will be quite nice.’’
The family is season ticket holders, but are looking forward to sitting courtside.
“We try each week to as part of the members’ upgrade promotion to get the (courtside) seats but never have,’’ she said.
“This is going to be a different experience and we’re looking forward to the atmosphere.’’
