Danny & Vickie Ranes are heading to Hawaii courtesy of Special Olympics Louisiana and the Louisiana NFL Player’s Association. The Ranes family won the trip after purchasing a $10.00 raffle ticket back in December.
When asked what they think about winning the trip, Mr. Ranes remarked, “We are very happy to be afforded the opportunity to enjoy this once in a lifetime experience, but are even happier to have participated in a fundraiser for a group with such noble causes as those of the Special Olympics. The accomplishments of this organization and the great impact of its work on the athletes, families, and spectators is worthy of the entire country’s support and appreciation. We hope to, if only in a small way, serve as ambassadors for the Special Olympics and the athletes which it foster.”
The Ranes family will be enjoying “The Pro Bowl Package” which includes round-trip airfare, 5 day/4 nights hotel stay in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii, Aloha Reception and admission to The Pro Bowl Experience. They will get to see the following 5 members of the New Orleans Saints in action: (*-denotes starter)
– Drew Brees, quarterback

– Jahri Evans, guard *
– Jimmy Graham, tight end *
– Carl Nicks, guard *
Congratulations to the Ranes Family and Good luck to the New Orleans Saints!
