Quaterback Club

Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club

Presented by Compliance Technology Group & SportsNOLA.com

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 78th 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 Quarterback Club will meet weekly on Tuesday for 16 consecutive weeks, beginning with the first meeting of the season on August 30 at noon.

The organization is pleased to return for its weekly luncheons to The Cannery at 3803 Toulouse Street for a third year. The Cannery, an outstanding multi-purpose events facility, is located behind the American Can Company Building.

The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club promotes the very best of amateur football, along with the New Orleans Saints.

“The Pel Hughes Family is thrilled to welcome the Quarterback Club to The Cannery for another season of exciting luncheons,” said Hughes. “The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club and Pel Hughes share a long history of participating in and supporting New Orleans area sports.”

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 30 running through Tuesday, December 13.

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.

SportsNOLA.com serves as the official web site of the GNOSF Quarterback Club while Compliance Technology remains a presenting sponsor, along with Strength Shoe, WGSO 990 AM and WHNO TV 20.

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.
