The Fort Wayne Komets will host a second-annual Wabash Night with the Komets on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.


Wabash area businesses and community members are invited to join the Komets for a night out with family, friends while the Komets battle the Utah Grizzlies.


The attending will be treated to an exclusive discounted rate with this special ticket offer while supplies last.


Booth rental space for businesses are available on a first come, first serve basis.


Tickets will go for $15 apiece. Patrons may purchase tickets by visiting https://groupmatics.events/Wabashcommunity2, or by calling or emailing Mitch Meinholz at 260-482-6812.


“We sat and looked at demographics after a season two or three years ago, and we saw that we have a good amount of people who come from outside of Fort Wayne,” Meinholz said. “Not too far, but a good hour-plus in each direction. We get a good amount of people from Ohio all the way down to Muncie.


“We decided it would be a good idea if we’re going to have these kinds of fans come to the games once a year, try to involve some of the bigger towns that surround Fort Wayne and get them involved. We worked through the chamber and mayor’s office to get their support. We put out a cheap ticket offer to encourage fans to come out to a community night as a way to draw people from that community.”
