08 May Andre Ward Hosts Meet and Greets for Fans in the Bay Area and Las Vegas
Andre Ward enjoyed the chance to interact with his fans through Meet and Greets at Shoe Palace locations in Hayward, Calif., and Las Vegas over the past couple of weeks. He hosted hundreds of his hometown faithful at the Shoe Palace in Southland Mall on Friday, April 29 and enjoyed meeting the large contingent of fans who wanted in a line around the building to meet their homegrown champion. Andre’s daughter, Amira, stood by her dad’s side and helped him greet all the fans as they got their t-shirts, photos and gloves signed. Fans brought photos and memorabilia he hadn’t seen in years to the Hayward signing, bringing back amazing memories for Andre.
He moved southeast to Las Vegas for his second signing on Saturday, May 7 at the brand new Shoe Palace location at the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian Hotel. Fans began lining up four hours before Ward’s arrival to meet their favorite fighter and purchase the latest SOG gear. Andre met and greeted fans for more than three hours before heading to MGM to support his teammate in his big showdown with Canelo.
If you missed Andre at one of his first two signings, don’t despair, he’s working on more signings in other areas of the United States now so stay tuned to his twitter @andreward, Instagram @andresogward, and Andre Ward on Slyce, for his upcoming stops.
