Waka Kickball Tournament to benefit Team Gleason
On Saturday, November 14th, hundreds gathered in City Park to play in the kickball tournament of the year! Waka Kickball league hosts the Waka Charity Kickball tournament in the fall to raise money, awareness, and support for Team Gleason.
Players were lead by Jennifer Gaubert in the National Anthem followed by a half-time performance by the Sirens of New Orleans. This year, more than $20,000 was raised for The Gleason Initiative Foundation by team entry fees, raffles, jello-shot sales, merchandise sales, a percentage of Parlay’s bar sales and other misc. donations from various individuals and corporate sponsors. Steve even joined the fun for the majority of the event!
We would like to send a huge thanks to Sean Gaubert, the Director of the New Orleans Waka Chapter, and Tabitha Diecidue for their tireless efforts in making this event happen year after year. The continued success of this event is a direct reflection of their continued support and dedication to Team Gleason.
Team Gleason loves Waka Kickball!
