Prescott Valley, AZ – The Arizona Sundogs announced they have just met their 300 new season ticket goal at 8:30am. The boys have decided they won’t descend from the lift until noon marking exactly five days in the lift.
Arizona Sundogs executives dug deep during their “Whatever it Takes” Ticket Campaign, selling 302 new season tickets in just under 120 hours, as the Sundogs looked to capitalize on their success following their 2012-13 season.
On Sunday they launched an ambitious ticket campaign encouraging fans in Northern Arizona to purchase season tickets.
Brad Fain, Chris Presson, Lew Rees and Team Captain, Jason Morgan all demonstrated their commitment and dedication to the team and community by sacrificing their comfort and time, spending 120 hours in a 5’ x 8’ lift, extended 30-feet above Prescott Valley. They spent their days and nights in the lift, only descending for scheduled restroom breaks. They ate, slept and conducted their daily business deals from high atop the lift, battling the ever changing elements, including wind gusts upward of 20mph.
“We are so excited and grateful for everyone who came out and purchased their season tickets”, said Sundogs’ General Manager, Chris Presson. “We never imagined the type of coverage this campaign would receive and are still amazed.” The support of the town and people from around the world is tremendous and we couldn’t have been as successful, without them.” Co-Investor, Brad Fain also expressed “The time is now. The team needs the communities to pull together and fill the house. There is no better entertainment value in Northern Arizona than an Arizona Sundogs game.”
The four, tired and disheveled men are excited the experience is almost complete and can’t wait to return to solid ground and are grateful to be able to sleep in their own beds tonight.
The entire organization is dedicated to securing the team’s long future in Prescott Valley. They are still encouraging everyone that hasn’t already reserved their seats to stop by Glassford Hill Road and Highway 69 where sales staff will remain on site until 3:00pm with ticket information.
