23 Nov The BairFind Foundation Announces Partnership with the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants in the NBA Development League
Jacksonville, FL – November 21, 2016 –The BairFind Foundation has established a new partnership with the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants in the NBA Development League to raise awareness for missing children. The Mad Ants are the NBA Development League affiliate of the Indiana Pacers. BairFind Signs will be placed in their arena showing photos of 14 missing children from the greater Ft. Wayne, Indiana area. Fans will see the signs as they enter the arena which will result in thousands of views of each child’s photo during every home game. This marks the first expansion for BairFind Foundation into professional basketball. The Jacksonville, FL based BairFind Foundation is an Official Homegrown Charity Partner of Minor League Baseball with signs in 139 stadiums across the country.
Dennis Bair, Founder of the BairFind Foundation is excited about this new partnership. “We are honored to partner with the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA Development League. The Mad Ants will display two of our six foot tall BairFind Signs on their concourse this season featuring the profiles of 14 area missing children. By partnering with the Mad Ants and their fans, we are “going to the line” together in the search for missing children.”
Tim Bawmann, President of Ft. Wayne Mad Ants states: “As a father of two children, I can’t imagine the devastation a family goes through when one of their kids goes missing. I’m hopeful by our participation with the BairFind Foundation that these lost children in our greater Ft. Wayne area will be reunited with their families very soon.”
The BairFind Foundation is a tax exempt 501(C)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to find missing children. BairFind produces signs for sports stadiums and arenas that feature photos of each city’s missing children. BairFind signs are placed in high visibility areas and are seen by millions of sports fans each season, greatly increasing the chances that featured children will be safely located.
