Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club
The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation has joined forces with the Greater New Orleans Quarterback Club to create the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club.
Entering its 79th year, the Quarterback Club promotes amateur and professional sports in the Greater New Orleans area on a weekly basis.
“The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation is proud to partner with a 78-year-old organization that has done well for our community,” Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation President/CEO Jay Cicero said. “We hope to help the Quarterback Club to grow in attendance, programming and awareness. We believe it is a great partnership that can last a long time and a valuable, addition benefit to Sports Foundation members.”
For the second straight year, the GNOSF Quarterback Club will meet weekly on Tuesday for 16 consecutive weeks, beginning with the first meeting of the season on August 29 at noon.
The organization is pleased to announce that the new location for our weekly luncheons is Rock ‘n’ Bowl, the immensely popular New Orleans bowling and music entertainment facility conveniently located at 3016 South Carrollton Avenue.
The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club promotes the very best of amateur football, along with the New Orleans Saints.
Members and non-members are invited to the weekly luncheons, which are held every Tuesday for 16 consecutive weeks, with the exception of Tuesday, August 29 running through Tuesday, December 12.
Annual standard membership is $50 per person with premier annual membership at $80, which includes a Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club golf shirt and lapel pin, along with reserved seating. Luncheons are $20 per person for members and $25 per person for non-members. Purchase tickets to luncheons here.
CrescentCitySports.com serves as the official web site of the GNOSF Quarterback Club while Compliance Technology remains a presenting sponsor, along with WGSO 990am Radio.
The weekly cost for members for lunch is $20 while non-members are welcome at $25 each. Speakers on the Saints, LSU, Tulane and prep football are featured every week. Other special guests are scheduled throughout the season.
The Quarterback Club selects a prep player of the week from the metro area each week and will announce a prep player of the year at the final meeting on Tuesday, December 13, sponsored by the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.
