Hornets Bee-lieve in Volunteerism

Eugene Priestly, UWGNOA Volunteerism Chair; Gary Ostroske, CEO, UWGNOA; and Captain Thomas Luscher, Executive Officer, NAS JRB
The New Orleans Hornets have joined forces with United Way to promote volunteerism in our community through corporate employee volunteer programs.

On Monday, April 11, United Way and the Hornets honored 21 companies and their employees who have committed themselves to volunteer projects that will make our community a better place to live, work and raise our families. These organizations were recognized during halftime, and all CEOs and volunteer coordinators were able to enjoy some face time with the Hornets and club seats for the game against Utah.
