Hawks Announce Plans for Second Annual 'Divine 9 Night presented by State Farm' on Wednesday, Nov. 15

The Atlanta Hawks today announced their plans for their second annual Divine 9 Night presented by State Farm on Wednesday, Nov. 15 during the team’s game against the New York Knicks. The Hawks have dedicated this night to celebrating the Black Greek Letter Organizations of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), collectively referred to as the Divine Nine (D9).

The Hawks have a special ticket package for the night, which includes a $10 food-and-beverage credit and a donation to the NPHC of Greater Atlanta. The package also includes a Hawks and State Farm co-branded Divine Nine shirt, while supplies last. This offering can be secured at Hawks.com/promos.

As part of the night, the Hawks and State Farm will donate $10,000 each to four local colleges to assist their student population who are members of a Divine Nine organization. These four schools, Clark Atlanta University, Georgia State University, Morehouse College and Spelman College, will identify five students by the end of the calendar year who are in need of a scholarship equal to $2,000 to support their educational journey. 

“After making a tremendous impact on our community at last year’s event, we couldn’t be more thrilled to team up again with State Farm and highlight the legacy of the Divine Nine in Atlanta and throughout the world,” said Hawks and State Farm Arena’s Vice President of DEI Impact and Strategic Initiatives Alexis Roe. “During our second annual Divine 9 Night presented by State Farm, we will celebrate the vital role these organizations play in driving meaningful impact in our workplace, workforce and the marketplace.”

As part of pregame, fans who purchased a special ticket package will join employees from the Hawks and State Farm as well as various grant recipients for a community service project in a joint effort with Project U First. Those participating will make about 1 thousand LOVE Bags (hygiene kits) that will be distributed to Mimi’s Pantry, the official food pantry of the Atlanta University Center, as well as the Panther’s Pantry, which is responsible for distributing food and basic necessities to the Georgia State University community in an effort to alleviate the stress associated with short-term food insecurity.

Joining them will also be nearly 80 students and school administration from Clark Atlanta University, Georgia State University, Morehouse College and Spelman College who were provided tickets from State Farm.
