Sparks host annual season ticket holder picnic

Today Los Angeles Sparks and coaches hosted several hundred season ticket holders at the annual “MVP picnic.” Fans got a chance to talk to athletes, get autographs and play games.

Candace Parker and husband Shelden Williams brought four-year-old daughter Lailaa, and Nneka Ogwumike’s sister Chiney was in attendance. Chiney, who is now a senior at Stanford University, posed for numerous pictures with her sister, and signed autographs.

Ebony Hoffman shares a laugh with Roosevelt Madison, husband of Sparks majority owner Paula Madison.

At the autograph table with Farhiya Abdi and Jenna O’Hea, Candace Parker reacts after learning that the NFL’s Chicago Bears have just scored.
