"It’s an exciting time in New Orleans. We are rebuilding Pontchartrain Park and the Pro Player Insiders, past and present, are here to help,” said Pierce. “As we get ready for the Super Bowl, come join us celebrate and party with a purpose”

“It’s no secret the community and people of New Orleans hold a special place in my heart,” said Will Smith. “It was a no-brainer to team up with Wendell who feels the same and put on a VIP event that directly impacts our neighborhoods. I’m looking forward to a special event with my NFL family and supporters of The “Where There is A Will, There’s A Way” Foundation. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate having Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.”
