Taylor Porter is a proud sponsor of the 14th Annual LSU Law Center Barrister's Bowl, a charity football game to raise money for Geaux Teal, a Baton Rouge area charity started by LSU Softball Coach Beth Torina that focuses on ovarian cancer awareness, treatment and patient services. The game kicks off at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at BREC’s Memorial Stadium.
The game pits LSU Law Center students in a full-tackle football game with a student-cheerleading squad performing pre-game and half-time routines for the fans. After the passing of vice chancellor, dean, longtime professor, and Barrister’s Bowl’s biggest fan Cheney Joseph to cancer in 2015, Barrister’s Bowl organizers decided to donate proceeds from their annual game to cancer-related charities. Last year’s event raised more than $9,000 for the American Cancer Society.
Barrister’s Bowl is managed by the law student organization the LSU Law Football Club and its Co-Commissioners — Parham and Brady McMillin — as well as Cheerleading Captains Meghan Trahan, Brooklee Hurst and Hillary Brouillette.
The game is open to the public, and a minimum $5 donation (cash only) will be collected at the entrance. After the game, the LSU Law Football Club will host an after-party and auction at Uncle Earl’s (3753 Perkins Road) with items donated by Fuzzy's, The Royal Standard, Fred's Bar and Grill, TreadBR, LSU Athletics, and many more. Admission to the after-party is $5, and the doors open at 7 p.m. with a charity auction to begin at 8 p.m.
