Have you heard that the 610 Stompers are representing the City of New Orleans by performing in the 2011 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?
Did you want to make the road trip to support them or just go party with them in NYC?
Well, they would love to see you there, but if you can’t make the trip they have a solution for you. The 610 Stompers are bringing their version of the Macy’s Parade to New Orleans for one night only. It will be indoors at the Howlin’ Wolf and will include parade commentators, balloons, bands, performance groups and a sneak peak at their televised performance before 65 million other people see it.
Also, get the 610 Stompers 2012 Calendar at a discounted price of only $10 before they officially go on sale. This will be the hottest Christmas gift on the market since “Tickle me Elmo”!!
From whereyat.com’s article on the Stompers-
What makes these men so special is not only their uncanny ability to entertain crowds, but also the motivation behind the uniforms. What started as a plan to start an all male dance school to help pay for their Saints season tickets in their namesake section 610, has turned into an incredible medium to have fun while help others. Underneath those mustaches of manliness lie men with hearts larger than most. Since their formation in 2009, the 610 Stompers have raised and donated over $100,000 to charity. They were asked to be this year’s “Corporate Chair” of the Light the Night Walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Louisiana and Mississippi, released a Stomp Out Breast Cancer video with Touro Infirmary, and have partnered with over 13 local and national foundations where their dance moves have helped those less fortunate. They have mastered having fun with making a difference. At this year’s 610 Ball they gave $610 to each of over 20 local charities, which at first glance doesn’t seem like a lot. However, these grants more often doubled the charities’ operating budgets making a profound impact on our citizens and local community.
