New Orleans Pelican Organization Provides 30 tickets to Tangipahoa Youth for the Pelicans Game

Kentwood After-School and Summer Enrichment Program (KASEP) campers anxiously watch the New Orleans Pelicans take on the LA Clippers on Dec. 28, 2016.

Baton Rouge, LA – Thirty participants from Kentwood After-School and Summer Enrichment Program (KASEP) were recipients of one free game ticket to the Pelicans vs. Clippers game on December 28, 2016.  This initiative is a collaborative effort spearheaded by KASEP Program Director, Eric Brumfield; Political Leader, Derrick Edwards; and SU Ag Center’s Assistant Area Agent, Nicolette Gordon. 

Youth along with volunteers that have worked with the program throughout the summer were able to enjoy, one more day of free time before returning back to their regularly scheduled programs for the next semester.  Many youth anxiously watched as the Pelicans went on to beat the LA Clippers with 1.4 seconds left on the clock in a very close game.  

“Going into the New Year, we’re going to make sure every child that participates in our program gets a chance to experience an NBA game,” said Eric Brumfield.

For more information on volunteer opportunities, or community partnerships with the Kentwood After-School and Summer Enrichment Program, please contact Nicolette Gordon via email at or in the Tangipahoa Parish Extension Office on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 985.748.9381.
