New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jose Alvarado, the MVP of the recent NBA Rising Stars Game, will sign memorabilia, take photos and raffle off an autographed game jersey at Fat Boy’s Pizza in Mandeville, Louisiana, according to a press release.
“It is truly a thrill to partner with a special young man,” Casey Biehl, vice president of operations, said in the press release. “Jose Alvarado is obviously a tenacious and a very talented basketball player, but his humility and connectivity are the reasons why he is such a great match for Fat Boy’s and this guest experience. We hope the Northshore community is equally as excited.”
The event will take place on Friday, March 10, from 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
Alvarado, 24, is a second-year player averaging nearly 10 points per game. In last year’s NBA playoffs, the Georgia Tech alum scored a career-high 38 points in a win over the Denver Nuggets. In March 2022, he signed a four-year contract worth $6.5 million.
New Orleans-based Fat Boy’s Pizza operates eight locations in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
