NOLA FOR LIFE Midnight Basketball Continues this weekend

November 01, 2013

NEW ORLEANS, LA—TOMORROW, the City of New Orleans, the New Orleans Pelicans and PlayNola will continue the fifth season of NOLA FOR LIFE Midnight Basketball. Midnight Basketball focuses on providing safe recreational opportunities in crime hot spots for young men through the game of basketball. Mentorship and educational support are also key components of this initiative. NOLA FOR LIFE Midnight Basketball is free of charge and open to males over 16 years old.

Launched in May 2012, NOLA FOR LIFE is New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu's comprehensive murder reduction strategy to tackle the city's historically high murder rate. Recognizing that law enforcement alone cannot solve the murder problem, NOLA FOR LIFE takes a holistic approach to get to the root of the problem, and implements initiatives in five main categories: Stop the Shooting, Invest in Prevention, Promote Jobs and Opportunity, Improve the NOPD and Get Involved and Rebuild Neighborhoods.
