The New Orleans City Council has put its final touches on their plans for the third annual city softball game which will be hosted by Council President Oliver M. Thomas, Jr. and co-hosted by Rocsi of B.E.T.’s 106 & Park! The Council will present its annual City Council School Supply “Jocks & Gems” Softball Game on Saturday, May 19, 2007 at Wesley Barrow Stadium in historic Pontchartrain Park from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Fans attending the game are asked to bring a can good for admission!
The New Orleans City Council hosts a softball game each year as a way to ensure students in New Orleans are prepared for the upcoming school year by collecting and distributing school supplies to the city’s students. The game also supports the New Orleans School Board “Answer the Bell” initiative. The “Answer the Bell” campaign’s focus is to get as many youth to report for the first day of school.
Over the past two years, the City’s softball game has provided thousands of bags of school supplies that included loose leaf paper, one subject notebooks, crayons, pencils, rulers, pens, glue, markers, and more! In an effort to increase the support for the school supply drive as well as revive the spirit of New Orleans, this year’s softball game is set to be one of the best events for the community this summer.
The annual City Council School Supply “Jocks & Gems” Softball Game will be a day of fun for all ages and will feature food, amazing prizes, photo opportunities, and of course the big game! Bobby Norfleet Racing of NASCAR will be showing an official NASCAR at the game for all to enjory! The all-star line features members of the City’s staff and stars to include Rocsi and Terrance J (106 & Park), Deuce McAllister and Danny Clark (New Orleans Saints), Roy Williams and Bradie James (Dallas Cowboys), Bobby Norfleet (NASCAR), Wendy (America’s Next Top Model), Allen Rossum (Atlanta Falcons), Juggie, Rob Nice and Wild Wayne (Q93 Radio Personalities), Jason Allen (Miami Dolphins), Jamie Sharper (retired NFL All-Pro Defensive Lineman), Chuck Wiley (former LSU standout/NFL veteran) and Tutan Reyes (former Saint and current NFL free agent), and other special guests.
