Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club

The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation presented by Home Bank

The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation joined forces in recent years with the Greater New Orleans Quarterback Club to create the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club.

While the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation returns as the “home team,” The Quarterback Club is pleased to announce the addition of Home Bank as the presenting sponsor in 2018.

Home Bank senior vice president and New Orleans market president John Zollinger is thrilled to be joining the great tradition of the Quarterback Club.

A New Orleans native and graduate of Jesuit (1985) and Spring Hill, Zollinger is thrilled to have Home Bank on board with the Quarterback Club.

“I think there is nothing more New Orleans than high school, college football and the Saints,” Zollinger said. “It is part of the fabric of the community and as a true community bank, we are proud to be associated with the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club. We look forward to having a great year.”

Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation President/CEO Jay Cicero is pleased to continue the relationship with the Quarterback Club as well.

“It is a meaningful platform for our organization to be able to support the athletic teams in our area, especially the high schools and their student-athletes,” Cicero said. “It’s an important element for our relationship with Chevron and the scholar-athletes of the week (male and female). This is our fourth year of participation and it is a quality event that we loved being involved with.”

The GNOSF Quarterback Club will meet weekly on Tuesday for 16 consecutive weeks, beginning with the first meeting of the season on August 28th at noon.

The organization is pleased to announce that our weekly luncheons return for a second year to 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 28 running through Tuesday, December 10.
