Pros vs. Media Flag Football Game
Time & Location
About the Event
On Sunday, September 1, 2019 former Saints and LSU baller Marlon Favorite and media personality Casey Ferrand will host the 2nd annual Media vs. Pros Flag Football Game. The hosts are bringing current and former professional and college athletes to play alongside television and social media influences in front of a crowd of fans and onlookers.
The Inaugural event was much more than a game; it raised funds and awareness to support the research and mission of the American Heart Association. This year, we are working to support two local non-profits Son of a Saint and Brothers at Peace. Both organizations provide mentorship, recreation, and enriching programs to young men in New Orleans.
Both non-profits are being asked to organize their own flag football team made up of mentors and the youth they work with to play a game before the celebrity flag football game. After a winner is determined, proceeds from the event will be split between the non-profits. Sixty percent of the ticket sales will go to the winning team and 40 percent to the second place team.
The event will also feature food, fun, entertainment, giveaways and a meet-and-greet with the players. We hope to see you in the stands!
