On Sunday, January 1, 2012 during the New Orleans Saints vs. the Carolina Panthers pre-game, Elevate was nominated for the 2011 Saints Community Quarterback Award. Latoya Torregano Haynes an Elevate board member is to thank for this acknowledgment and award as she went out of her way to get Elevate the recognition. It was a pleasure being nominated amongst the Boys & Girls Club, Second Harvest Food Bank and other notable organizations. The biggest surprise of the day was when the highest award was given to Elevate as a $10,000 grant. Elevate is excited to have received this recognition for their commitment to the youth within the New Orleans Community. This is truly a great way to start off the New Year.
