Once again, WEDF has contracted with Centerplate to provide concessions at scheduled events held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Smoothie King Arena, and the Morial Convention Center. WEDF will be providing necessary manpower to staff concession sites.
A large portion of the proceeds generated through our efforts are utilized to fund our initiatives with neighboring schools. There are required orientation sessions offered by Centerplate that cover code of conduct, dress code, and alcohol awareness.
Join us as a volunteer! Please use the "Contact Form" to forward your information.
WEDF is committed to being a resource in providing the children in our neighborhoods access to enriching after-school activities. As we did last season, we will be hosting outings to Pelican's home games. In addition to the sporting events we will also visit local museums and other educational venues. Our kids will get to see and experience how the products and services that are produced and rendered here in their hometown are done.
We will be sponsoring activities at local playgrounds. WEDF will be partnering with the Boys and Girls Clubs in neighboring communities. Much of our efforts are to re-ignite the civic pride that has diminished within our communal circles.
