Black and Gold Gala

Sean Payton, Head Coach of the World Champion New Orleans Saints, and Ochsner Health System present the Black and Gold Gala 2013.  This event will raise funds for Payton's Play It Forward Foundation created in 2008.  Our mission is to raise funds and awareness for organizations working with families and children in the areas of health, education, and social welfare.

Payton's Play It Forward Foundation will hold its third Black and Gold Gala fundraiser in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Saturday, September 28, 2013.

The event will include an all-star line-up including our Master of Ceremonies, Jon Gruden, NFL analyst for ESPN , a special appearance by Country Artist Kenny Chesney and  Honorary Chair for the evening, John Besh.

Funds raised this year will be distributed to Feed the Children, The John Besh Foundation and the Saints Courage House, helping families and children in need along the Gulf Coast. The remaining proceeds will be awarded to smaller organizations in the area.

The Gala will include both silent and live auctions, seated dinner and entertainment.  There will be a limited number of sponsorships and individual tickets available for this event.
