Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone! Sideline Pass is about to begin its annual Holiday Toy Drive, and we hope you’ll join in the fun! Our Toy Drive Kick Off Party is Thursday, December 7 starting at 7:00 pm. We’ve outgrown our space on the Ruth’s Chris patio, so we’re moving to Canal Place! The Toy Drive Kick Off party will be extra special this year, as it’s a watch party for the Saints vs the Falcons with Steve Gleason and other members of the Black and Gold’s Super Bowl team. Wear your festive black and gold attire to cheer on our Saints! Admission is free with the donation of a toy or monetary gift. All of the toys collected go to foster children and those living in shelters across South Louisiana. We’ll have the game on big screen televisions, Santa, an auction and various pop up shops for you to do some of your holiday shopping. If you can’t make the party, we have some amazing partners who will have toy collection boxes out for the month of December. Drop off your donations at any Breaux Mart, Stein Mart, Ruth’s Chris, Dolce Clothing, One Shell Square, the Cotton Mill or Fuel Fitness. If you dont have a dropoff location near you you can mail it directly to us at the address below. See you all December 7th at Canal Place, 7:00!
