Saints and Hornets to raise funds for Isaac victims

by Jillian Aubin on September 10, 2012

The New Orleans Saints and the New Orleans Hornets just announced they will be holding two raffles to benefit the victims of Hurricane Isaac. The funds from the raffles will be used to create a relief fund. Saints and Hornets Owner/Chairman of the Board Tom Benson made the announcement last Thursday.

“As we have shown before in trying times, we will band together and help our neighbors when they need support,” Benson said. “Nearly everyone that lives in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast were negatively impacted in some way, shape or form by Hurricane Isaac. While we are excited for the start of the 2012 season, it is with a heavy heart that we witness what our neighbors are dealing with, whether it is significant damage to their homes, disruption of employment or having to leave their homes because the storm was so destructive.”

The Saints package will include a suite for 20 people for the game against the Kansas City Chiefs on September 23, at which Centerplate will provide catering. The winner will also receive 20 pre-game sideline passes for the game.

The Hornets package includes two floor seats and a pre-game meet-and-greet with the players for the November 7 game against Philadelphia. The package also features VIP parking and two courtside club passes that include food and beverages. The winner will also receive two tickets to the 2013 NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston, Texas. The All-Star Weekend ticket package will feature the 62nd NBA All-Star Game, as well All-Star Saturday Night presented by State Farm. Additionally, the winner will receive a two-night stay in Houston courtesy of the Four Seasons Hotel.
