Former LSU Tiger hoping to raise money for disadvantaged single mothers
May 16, 2011 The Jarvis Green Foundation's wine tasting gala, which benefits disadvantaged single mothers in low income areas comes to Baton Rouge. The evening festivities at the Cook Hotel/Lod Cook Alumni Center will include a live band, dining on gourmet food, sipping fine wines, a raffle and a silent auction.
These women take on awesome responsibilities of raising and building the lives of precious children alone. Despite the circumstance, the key is a parent who not only provides for their children but gives much love and doesn't give up. Therefore, The Jarvis Green Foundation hosts various events and fundraisers in an effort to help make these families'
dreams a reality.
"As athletes we need to think twice about the decisions we make to help the community. So many people invest time in helping to develop an athlete and support that person. So the least we [athletes] can do is give back. You paying forward is giving back what's been invested in you." said, Jarvis Green
Friday evening May 27th 7-11pm, the start of Memorial Day weekend patrons will be enjoying various flavors from Treasury Wine Estates at different stations placed throughout the venue while sampling international and southern cuisine catered by Unique Cuisine of Lod Cook Center. In addition, live music will be provided by Rat Pack Band featuring Liza Minnelli, jokes by comedian D'lai, and other performances such as X-tremetalent caricature, Elvis Statue and Jester Juggler.
A former 2x-Superbowl Champion, New England Patriot and current Houston Texan, Jarvis will be joined by former LSU and NFL players and coaches (i.e., Corey Webster, Bradie James, Kyle Williams, Randall Gay, Alan Faneca, Kevin Faulk, Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson, former All-Pro RB Jamal Anderson, Texans 2nd rd pick Brandon Harris, etc) Hollywood celebrities and various top local executives.
