Big Easy Kiwanis Club
Big Easy Kiwanis was formed in June 1991. They consist of 20 members and are a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. This club is committed to doing service that is close to our heart and crucial to its community, which serves people of all ages and abilities. Here are some of the service projects that we do: Feed the homeless in the community and also give them toiletry bags, adopted 9 families with the Women Shelter on So Liberty St this Christmas, prepared and served food for the seniors at Christopher Inn, Kids at Rain Tree and Covenant House. They also support a reading program at Craig Elementary School where we have members go and read to the kids and supplied dictionaries to the fourth grade classes, as well as supplied toys for their Christmas toy drive. We are glad and look forward to this partnership with NOLA FOR LIFE with the Midnight Basketball.
Brian Randolph, Founder of Reaching for the Stars
As a remarkable basketball player, Brian Randolph’s journey to inspire youth began when he insisted John Ehret High School in winning the nationalized state championship in basketball in 2006. This led to his featured roles in a Nike Air Jordan commercial, Word Up Magazine, Sports Illustrated Magazine and the movie Hurricane Season, which starred Taraji P. Henson and Forrest Whitaker. With such recognition, Randolph began to understand the great impact he had on youth.
