All proceeds from online contest to be donated to Boys and Girls Clubs of America
When you run the ultimate sports bar, and Drew Brees is one of your owners, putting together the “Ultimate Louisiana Football Weekend” seems like a natural.
Fans of the All-Pro quarterback and his favorite sports bar, Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar, are invited to enter an online charity raffle to win an incredible weekend football package featuring tickets to both an LSU and New Orleans Saints game, a private tour of the Saints training facility, a meet-and-greet with Drew Brees himself, and much more.
Just imagine the memories you and your three guests will create during this four-day football feast:
- Friday, Oct. 14 – fly to New Orleans, begin your three-night stay at the Ritz Carlton Hotel (2 rooms) and enjoy a sumptuous dinner for four at a chefs table (Restaurant TBD).
- Saturday, Oct. 15 – Bus to Baton Rouge on Walk-On’s “Sprinter” for a pre-game party at Walk-On’s Burbank location; then head over to Tiger Stadium to watch LSU take on Southern Miss. Tickets and field passes provided! Then take the Sprinter back to New Orleans for the evening.
- Sunday, Oct. 16 – Your group will enjoy Club seats and field passes for the Saints/Panthers game at the Louisiana Superdome, followed by a post-game party at the Walk-On’s on Poydras.
- Monday, Oct. 17 – You’ll meet Drew Brees at the Saints training facility in Metairie and he’ll personally autograph four jerseys for you! Then you’ll wrap up your magical weekend with a private tour of the facility.
Raffle tickets must be purchased by 12 noon CT on Wed., Sept. 21. Prices and complete rules can be found at walk-ons.com. 100% of the proceeds from raffle ticket sales will be donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. The winner will be chosen Sept. 21.
“Culture, food and football are three words that perfectly sum up a true Louisianan and this sweepstakes covers it all,” said Brandon Landry, co-founder and owner of Walk-On’s Enterprises. “We really appreciate all of the support we receive from our guests so we thought it would be fun to team up with Drew to offer a one-of-a-kind experience for some lucky winners. We are especially excited to partner with the Boys and Girls Clubs to help support the life changing work they do in our communities.”
