Disclosure: My father donates his time to this organization, serving on its board of directors. No one on the 3 Point Club’s Executive Committee or Board of Directors receive any kind of financial compensation for the work that they do for the organization, nor did Bourbon Street Shots for the publishing of this post. We simply like to take any opportunity that we can to promote charitable activity such as those organized by the 3 Point Club.

The 3 Point Club of New Orleans will host its next fundraiser on December 5th at Metairie Country Club at 6:30 PM. In case you missed our first post explaining the Pelicans-themed philanthropic organization, here is the club’s President, Dr. Lance Turkish, explaining who they are and what they do:

The 3-Point Club is a community service organization, supporting the New Orleans Pelicans, the sport of basketball, and the New Orleans metro community. The club was formed in 2014 by a group of Pelicans fans with extensive experience in community service. Recognizing the importance of the New Orleans Pelicans to the community, they decided to create an organization to encourage fan support for the New Orleans Pelicans and promote philanthropic activity related to basketball. 

The 3-Point Club, in partnership with the New Orleans Pelicans, have teamed together to put on a basketball camp for children with cancer, sickle cell anemia, and those impacted by illnesses that prevent them from participating in regular youth athletic programs. The camp is held in July each year, and the third annual camp will take place in July, 2018. Families with children interested in attending should send an email to 3pointclubofneworleans@gmail.com or contact Roslyn Duplessie at 504-452-8993The 3-Point Club is also beginning a college scholarship for students whose lives have been impacted by health related issues.

The 3-Point Club of New Orleans is an IRC Section 501(c)(7) organization. Donations to the organization are not tax deductible. You can follow us on Facebook (group name: 3 Point Club of New Orleans) and on our website.
