GW Carver High School is the centerpiece of an ambitious plan to restore pride in the 9th Ward community and a lifeline for students who are struggling to re-establish their lives more than 4 years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the area. The 9th Ward Field of Dreams seeks to build a state-of-the-art football field and track to provide a safe, healthy and readily accessible environment for all New Orleanians.

 

NEW ORLEANS, LA/ MIAMI, FL – As the New Orleans Saints  played  their first ever Super Bowl in Miami on February 7, Saints Quarterback Drew Brees and Marshall Faulk, New Orleans native and former Indianapolis Colts player, made a commitment to support a state-of-the-art, free-to-the-public football stadium and track in New Orleans’ 9th Ward.  The campaign seeks to raise the money necessary to complete the project by the end of the Super Bowl’s 4th Quarter.

“This is a time of unparalleled excitement for the city of New Orleans,” says Brees, “but as a city we are still facing challenges.  By texting “DREAM” you are making a commitment to the 9th Ward and the rejuvenation of the city.”  

Donors participated by texting “DREAM” to 50555 and were asked to confirm a donation of $10.00.  All proceeds will go through The Brees Dream Foundation
 (http://9thwardfieldofdreams.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=a38ae897f37c90fc6fbd54138&id=1492fdacd5&e=9da57f782b) to build the facility, with any additional funds going toward the redevelopment of George Washington Carver High School where the stadium will be built.  

Marshall Faulk, an alumnus of Carver, said, “I grew up in the 9th Ward, so I understand the real effects this stadium can have. Its more than just keeping kids off the street and more than just playing sports--this project can act as a catalyst for the coming together of the community and the redevelopment of this neighborhood.”  

The 9th Ward Field of Dreams, a project started by 24-year-old, New York-native Brian Bordainick, seeks to rejuvenate the decimated neighborhood by using sports as a rallying point for the community.  He began the project 2008 and has already raised $1.1 of the $1.9 million needed to complete the project and counts Nike, the National Football League and the Louisiana Recovery School District among his supporters. He hopes the partnership of Brees and Faulk will bring the project to fruition.  

When asked about the probability of raising the funds in so little time, Brees says, “As a New Orleans resident, I think if this season has proven anything it’s that this city can accomplish anything we put our minds to.”
 

The 9th Ward Field of Dreams is a nonprofit seeking to build a state-of-the-art football field and track in New Orleans' Upper 9th Ward, one of the areas most decimated by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  With the goal of raising $1.8 million dollars, the Field of Dreams seeks to provide a safe, healthy and readily accessible environment for all New Orleanians and sees sports as a way to build and support communities.

Field of Dreams supporters include the National Football League, the New Orleans Saints, Nike, Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, and the Louisiana Recovery School District.
