The Atlanta Hawks held a red carpet reception at State Farm Arena on Feb. 8 to honor active and retired military personnel and their guests. In partnership with whisky brand Crown Royal, the pregame ‘Crowning Courage’ tribute “is just one way to show our gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices made by these courageous men and women,” said Hawks’ owner Jami Gertz. Season ticket holders donated their courtside seats to more than 180 veterans at the team’s game against Indiana. nba.com
