Saints Hall of Fame IP event


The seventh annual City of Biloxi Saints Hall of Fame events were once again a huge success this past weekend.

On Thursday, the fifth annual Saints Hall of Fame Experience reception and auction at IP Casino Resort Spa was a sellout, featuring many prominent former New Orleans Saints players and Saints Hall of Fame honorees. Patrons got to take pictures in the picture booth with the Lombardi Trophy from Super Bowl XLIV, enjoyed food and drink from all IP restaurants and enjoyed getting autographs and pictures with the Saints celebrities. A live auction of select items and a silent auction of sports memorabilia completed the evening.

Newest Saints Hall of Fame electee Jabari Greer, who will be formally inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame on December 8, spoke to those in attendance and praised all former Saints who paved the way for him and so many others in the NFL.

On Friday, the seventh annual City of Biloxi Saints Hall of Fame Golf Tournament was held at Grand Bear Golf Club in Saucier, MS at the outstanding Jack Nicklaus course.

The victorious team consisted of New Orleans Saints assistant general manager and director of college scouting Jeff Ireland, Saints senior communications director Doug Miller, Biloxi mayor FoFo Gilich, Andy Gilich, Steve Polk and David Leckich.

The seventh annual Saints Hall of Fame Night at the Biloxi Shuckers baseball game was Friday night with the Shuckers rallying from a 6-1 deficit to defeat the Pensacola Blue Wahoos 10-7.

Saints celebrities were introduced on the field prior to the game with Greer throwing out the first pitch.

Pro Dreams was on hand at the Thursday night event and the baseball game with outstanding sports memorabilia.
