VooDoo, Mardi Gras Indians Team up for School Supply Drive Contest

The New Orleans VooDoo and the Mardi Gras Indian Hall of Fame have teamed up for the team's home finale against the Georgia Force on Saturday, July 21 to assist New Orleans Metro Area children with school supplies.
VooDoo fans are asked to bring school supplies to the game. For every item donated, a fan will be entered in a raffle to win a VooDoo gift basket. The VooDoo gift basket will consist of a signed football and replica jersey by the VooDoo team, two ArenaBowl XXV tickets, along with other items that are must haves!
"We are excited about partnering with the Mardi Gras Indian Hall of Fame and the Guardians Institute for this noble cause. With many of our players and staff from the local area, we know the challenges that we face, which is why we have decided to partner up to help get our future leaders what they need to succeed in school," said Brandon Rizzuto, New Orleans VooDoo Vice President.
There will be Mardi Gras Indians to collect your donation of school supplies during the Fan Fest and the game. If you forget to bring school supplies, you can still give a cash donation. For every school supply item donated, fans will have to fill out a small form with their name, phone number and email address to be eligible for the VooDoo gift basket. The winner will be announced on the VooDoo Facebook page: on Monday at 10 a.m. If that winner does not contact the VooDoo front office by 11 a.m., another winner will be selected.
The Guardians Institute and Mardi Gras Indian Hall of Fame are excited to partner with the VooDoo team to continue with investing in our city's youth. "Knowledge, once acquired, is something that can never be taken away" as Big Chief Donald Harrison Sr. always said.
