Roll With Amir Re-Cap

This past Wednesday, March 30′th Amir Johnson and 50 lucky fans were treated to a special night out to “Roll With Amir”. Fan’s were able to win tickets through a series of competitions by following Amir on Twitter and Facebook.

Fan’s started off at St Louis Wings (595 Bay Street) for a special pre game meet up with some complimentary wings and drinks. There was also a check in desk where fan’s received a pair of tickets to the game and a custom t-shirt that showed everyone they were “Rollin With Amir”.

The next stop was the ACC where the Raptors and Amir took on the Milwaukee Bucks. Fans were treated to lower bowl seats across from the Raptors bench. The game was a hard fought one but unfortunately the Raptors came up short losing 104-98.

Next up was Ruth’s Chris. Amir decided to bring some of his team mates including Demar Derozan, Sonny Weems, and Ed Davis to the dinner. All the players and 50 lucky fans were in for a night of the finest 3 course meal Ruth’s Chris could offer which included a salad, fillet mignon, and chocolate cake. After dinner the players all signed autographs and took pictures.

All in all this night was about the fans being supportive of Amir and the Raptors all season long. A special thank you goes out to Nainesh Kotak at Kotak Law Firm for sponsoring the event and helping make it possible.

Stay tuned, because although the season is coming to a close the word is Amir has some more treats up his sleeves for his fans.

Here is a re-cap video from the night

Didn’t get a chance to go to the dinner, but what a great guy. What pro athlete does this for his fans? None, this is what separates Amir from the rest, hope he stays in Toronto for a long time.
