Dave Ward Book Signing and Breakfast plus a program celebrating the 25-Year Anniversary of the ’94-’95 Rockets Championship Team with legend Mario Elie.
Presented by The Buckingham

Dave Ward loves Houston and savors getting to watch our local teams play a game without interruption. Something he couldn’t do as our anchorman for 50- years. And he doesn’t skip breakfast.

This Saturday, buy Dave’s book, Good Evening, Friends: A Broadcaster Shares His Life, and get it signed by Dave himself while enjoying some of his favorite things: talking Houston Rockets Championships over breakfast.

It’s been 25-years since the Rockets came back against all odds to beat the Knicks and win Houston’s first ever championship by a major sports franchise.

The Houston Rockets won the NBA Championship again in 1995 and forever changed our city’s nickname from “Choke” to “Clutch”.  

Join Dave Ward as he sits down with Don Nelson and Mario Elie, (other team members TBD), to reminisce about the series that led to Houston’s first championship team with the “heart of a champion.”
