“When the Saints go marching in” is about to be stuck in all our heads.

Because New Orleans Saints Super Bowl-winning quarterback Drew Brees will be the featured speaker of the Walk-On’s Independence Bowl Kickoff Dinner!

The Kickoff Dinner will take place Tuesday, June 12, in the Captain Shreve Ballroom at the Shreveport Convention Center. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for a cocktail hour and the program will begin at 6:45.

Tickets to the Kickoff Dinner – which had been hosted as the Kickoff Luncheon the previous eight years – are $50 for individuals or $400 for tables of eight. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Walk-On’s Independence Bowl office at (318) 221-0712 or toll-free at (888) 414-BOWL. Tickets may also be purchased online here.

Brees has been a co-owner and partner of Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar since 2015.
