Baton Rouge, La.

Jacques Doucet is a sports reporter for WAFB 9News. He moved to Baton Rouge in 2001.

Along with his work at WAFB, Jacques founded a nonprofit 501-C charity called Red Rock & Blue. The organization holds a major charity fundraiser each summer to benefit Louisiana military, consisting of three major events - "The Celebrity/Sorta Celebrity Softball Game," "The Red, Rock and Blue Charity Concert" and "The Doucet/Begnaud Softball/Kick Ball Invitational".

RRB gives primarily to local military charity organizations to benefit those who serve and their families. Such organizations are The Blue Star Mothers of Louisiana, Wounded War Heroes and Support Our War Heroes. RRB donated a total of $100,000 to charity alone over the last two years (2015 & 2016), with more big plans moving forward. We are proud to say it is becoming one of the state's fastest growing charities.

In 2016, over 80 teams participated in the softball/kickball tournament, while multi-platinum bands like Sugar Ray, Everclear, Gin Blossoms, Eve 6, LIT, Soul Asylum and Sponge have played the concerts.

The Celebrity/Sorta Celebrity Softball Game is always a great time, with many different sports greats and other well-known personalities participating. Simply put, Red Rock & Blue is a very good thing. For more information, please visit redrockandblue.com.
