Watford, Oladipo set up autograph session

Indiana players Victor Oladipo, Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford will be signing autographs from 2 to 4 p.m. April 27 at Shepherd's Chevrolet Buick GMC in Kendallville.

The signing is open to the public; VIP tickets to the event cost $25 and will put buyers at the front of the line for autographs. There are 45 VIP tickets available, which also include a posed photo with Oladipo and Watford. Buyers should bring their own camera.

Attendees will have to pay for the autographs, and pricing information can be found below in our update.

Proceeds from the tickets will in part benefit The Hulls Foundation, which is put together by the family of IU guard Jordan Hulls.

So, a good opportunity at a nearby locale for Fort Wayne residents. If you want further details, you can contact Tim Alexander, who has promised to answer every call, email and Twitter message he receives about the event. Interested parties can reach him at timmerFW@aol.com or @timmeralex on Twitter, as well as 260-385-8034.

UPDATE

We've received some pricing information from Alexander and a clarification that participants will have to pay for autographs, whether they purchase VIP tickets or not.
