The Allegiant “Dodge High Fares” Dodgeball Tournament was held on Sunday, July 14 as part of the Three Rivers Festival. The event drew 23 teams of six to 10 players and countless spectators. The winning team received FWA prize packs, TinCaps tickets, and got to select one local charity to receive all proceeds.

“We were really pleased with the number of teams who came out to support local charities and have some fun on the dodgeball court,” said Scott Hinderman, Executive Director of Airports for the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority. “This event was a great success thanks to the help of Allegiant and the National Dodgeball League. They were both great partners, and we thank Allegiant for helping Fort Wayne travelers to ‘dodge high fares’ on their vacation travel.”

Allegiant’s nationwide “Dodge High Fares” campaign continues through mid-August, with supplementary dodgeball tournaments taking place in the cities they service. The travel company will also be giving away one free roundtrip ticket each week to those who visit www.dodgehighfares.com and tell Allegiant what they want to dodge while on vacation.

To put that percentage in perspective, we borrow that much money every 28 days. If the President can’t cut that much, he’ll never cut anything.”
