January 17, 2013 - Arena Football League (AFL) - New Orleans VooDoo
This Saturday, Ameriprise Financial presents the 2nd Annual Preaux's vs. Jeaux's 7-on-7 Charity Flag Football Game featuring members of PlayNOLA All-Stars and Ameriprise Financial against members of the New Orleans VooDoo Arena Football Team. In its second year, Preaux's vs. Jeaux's is gaining a reputation as not just a fun day for the family...but a Day of Service to our community. In 2012, President Obama instituted a "Day of Service" to mark and celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This year, The White House has selected Preax's vs. Jeaux's as the FLAGSHIP EVENT for the State of Louisiana for the Day of Service.
Gates open at noon on Saturday at Pan American Stadium and you are encouraged to bring the kids so they can enjoy bounce houses and games prior to the event.
Game 1 begins at 1:00 PM and features The New Orleans VooDoo Dolls vs. The Ladies of Ameriprise Financial. Game 2 will start at 2:00 PM and sell showcase the Athletes of The Miracle League of Greater New Orleans on two teams along with their celebrity assistants. The third and final game of the day will be the main event at 3:00 PM with the PlayNOLA All-Stars and Ameriprise Financial facing the New Orleans VooDoo! Word is, Ameriprise Financial has stacked their team with five veterans returning from the Middle East in hopes of keeping up with the athletes on Team VooDoo.
VooDoo Defensive Linemen Marlon Favorite and Derandus Frye have taken on the coaching duties for the New Orleans VooDoo Dolls and that game proved to be a fan favorite last year.
However, this event is all about the kids of The Miracle League of Greater New Orleans. Make plans to bring your family to Pan American Stadium this Saturday as Ameriprise Financial presents the 2nd Annual Preaux's vs. Jeaux's 7-on-7 Charity Flag Football Game. Come celebrate a Day of Service that benefits a fantastic organization in our community.
Tickets are only $10 and are available at the New Orleans VooDoo Office at 1515 Poydras St., Suite 100, Ameriprise Financial, PlayNOLA.com, or you may purchase tickets at the gate.
