The Phoenix Suns gave the VIP treatment to an Arizona boy who celebrated his birthday alone after 32 classmates failed to show up at his party, Inside Edition noted.
The team first heard about 6-year-old Teddy Mazzini's heart-breaking birthday party after a photo of him sitting alone at a table surrounded by pizza and drinks at Peter Piper Pizza went viral on social media, according to Fox 10.
"His birthday was actually Oct. 3, but because his dad works in Alaska and was able to come the 18th, I organized the whole party for the 21st," said his mom, Sil Mazzini.
Invitations were sent out to his classmates and Sil Mazzini said she spoke to the children's parents the night before, but the children still failed to show up.
Upon hearing of the incident, the Suns reached out on Twitter and offered Teddy Mazzini courtside tickets to their game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.
Teddy Mazzini got to meet and hang out with the players, who were excited to be part of the birthday celebrations.
He also received his own jersey and crown to wear for the evening and was presented with a cake and special song prepared by the Phoenix Suns Dancers.
After the unforgettable birthday party, Teddy Mazzini's parents said the outpourings were "overwhelming," Inside Edition noted.
