This year, Sideline Pass kicked off our second annual holiday toy and gift drive with another Thursday Night Football tailgate party in the winter wonderland of Ruth Chris’ patio on Fulton Street! Special guests included Saints players and alums Tom Morstead, Justin Drescher, Will Lutz, Jeff Charleston, Jabari Greer and Fred McAfee. Pelicans players and coaches jumped in on the action as well, including Langston Galloway, Alexis Ajinca, Phil Weber, Robert Pack and Darren Erman. WWL radio’s Mike Detillier was also a special guest. The price of admission - simply the donation of a toy or holiday gift for our foster girls and flood victims at Copper Mill Elementary School in Zachary. We had a packed turnout, as guests filled our sleigh with gifts, enjoyed our Envog Photo Booth courtesy of Daniel Nguyen and visited with the players and coaches. Our emcees for the night kept the party going – thank you WWL TV’s Tamica Lee and Super Fan JJ Robertson! Silent auction items included donations from Reagan Charleston Fine Jewelry, The Boulder Lounge (Kelsey Confreda), Better Than Ezra (Delery Cook), New Orleans Fashion Week (Tracee Dundas) and the Optimum Cut and Blow Dry from Biba Isla Salon (Biba Isla). Thank you so much ladies for your generosity!
