Special Olympics Louisiana was honored on the field at the Saints game yesterday as the charity spotlight. We were delighted by the exposure and promotion our mission received. We had volunteers at the gates, athletes and our CEO honored on the field. Ochsner and Verizon Wireless welcomed us to the game as well as promotional displays throughout the duration of the game. Thank you all for bringing much needed awareness to our organization.
