Arizona Sports Teams Step Up After Boy Is Pictured Alone at His 6th Birthday Party
Teddy Mazzini's mother invited 30 of his Kindergarten classmates, but not one showed up.
An Arizona boy turned 6 over the weekend, but when it came time to celebrate, he was all alone.
His mother, Sil Mazzini, invited over 30 of her son's kindergarten classmates to her son Teddy's pizza party birthday Sunday, but none of them showed. The boy was crushed.
She posted a photo of a very long and empty table all set for the classmates topped with pizza and drinks but only one person was in the frame: Teddy, with a frown on his face.
Word quickly spread of Teddy's solo birthday and social media lit up with birthday messages for the youngster.
Among the well-wishers were the Phoenix Suns, who stepped up with an offer of tickets to their game Wednesday against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.
"How about we celebrate with thousands at our place!" the team tweeted.
The area's professional soccer club, Phoenix Rising, followed suit, asking Teddy to "come join 7,000 of your closest friends!”
The boy later sent out a message to his supporters, thanking them for the kind words and for wishing him well.
