The New Orleans Saints and Copeland’s hosted almost eight hundred people at the Copeland’s location in Kenner, La. on Saturday for the third annual Copeland’s/Saints Kid’s Club kickoff event.
“This is one of our biggest events,” said Saints’ Director of Youth Programs Jason Trosclair. “It was big last year, it was bigger this year. Copeland’s has been a phenomenal partner.”
Members of the Saints Youth Programs department and other employees brought elements of the Saints Experience and the Jr. Training Camp program to Copeland’s and allowed the children to participate in five different drills including two inflatable courses. Saints mascots Gumbo and Sir Saint were also in attendance and spent the afternoon taking pictures and playing with the children.
“We are proud to partner with the New Orleans Saints year round and especially for this event to watch it grow every year,” said Al Copeland Jr., Chairman of the Board and CEO of Al Copeland Investments. “We look forward to the Annual Kid’s Club Kickoff where both kids and parents in the community can join us for great food and a wonderful time.”
Children that signed up for the Kid’s Club received a Saints helmet decal, a Kid’s Club bag, pencils, removable tattoos, stickers, coupons to Copeland’s, a photo of Kid’s Club spokesman WR
By signing up for the Kid’s Club and eating at Copeland’s, children have an opportunity to attend a football camp hosted by Moore at the team’s practice facility in Metairie in November.
At today’s event, families also had a chance to sign up for their child to have a chance to be an Official Jr. Tee Retriever and can still sign up at any Copeland’s of New Orleans or Cheesecake Bistro by Copeland’s throughout the season.
Almost three hundred kids and more than five hundred adults showed up between 12-3:00 P.M. to sign up for Kid’s Club and participate in the festivities.
“We just want the kids to have fun,” said Trosclair. “We are so glad to have Copeland’s on board with us.”
