hale3-MJSome lucky contest winners were able to enjoy an exclusive meet and greet with Lucy Hale at the KUZZ Listener Show, which was held at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace on Feb. 12.
Hale, an actress/vocalist well-known for her role as Aria in ABC Family’s hit show “Pretty Little Liars,” signed personalized autographs for the contest winners and also posed for photos with each winner prior to the concert. Contest winners Jackie and Natalia Luna, it had not been clear to them that they would be meeting Hale, as they were told that it was a “chance” at a meet and greet.
“I told my mom that I was cold, but I was shivering because I was so excited,” said 11-year-old Natalia. “I haven’t had a meet and greet before.”
Her mother, Jackie, 33, said, “I’m just tickled pink, I’m so excited.
“That was my first time getting to meet somebody famous also, so I’m glad I got to experience it with my kid.”
Jackie explained that she felt that the opportunity of meeting Hale with her daughter made the experience even more special.
There was an opportunity to reserve seats for the listener show, which were all reserved in no more than 90 minutes according to a KUZZ employee. However, the meet and greet opportunity was only for the contest winners.
“As soon as we walked out, there were people just looking at us, they were wondering how we got to do that,” Jackie said.
“It was pretty special. It’s awesome that [KUZZ] did that for us.”
Along with the tickets to the listener show and experience of meeting Hale, the contest winners were also provided a free chicken and wild rice dinner. Jackie said the chicken was her favorite part, explaining that it had good flavor.
Jackie, who is an avid KUZZ listener, explained that although she has won several contests through the radio station, the listener show with Hale was definitely her favorite. She said that the KUZZ staff that was present at the show made her feel very welcome and the surprises made for a special evening.
