Jefferson Parish is teaming up with the New Orleans Baby Cakes minor league baseball team to put on an event to support the Jefferson Community Actions Programs (JeffCAP) Head Start Birth to Five initiative at the Baby Cakes May 5th, 2017 home game at "The Shrine on Airline."  The JeffCAP Head Start Birth to Five Program is designed to ensure school readiness for children entering Kindergarten and to prepare them for lifelong success and self-sufficiency.  The low-income families of your municipalities and constituencies are provided with an opportunity through Head Start to create long lasting change to help prevent an ongoing cycle of generational poverty.  While we understand that you may have current objectives or endeavors at this time, we humbly request and would appreciate the support of your municipality, your constituency and also personal support if at all possible.  Tickets can be purchased for personal use, or you could sponsor a Head Start family (one child and one guardian) with a night at the ball game. 

Tickets can be purchased at the following link: When you click on the “register now” button a pop-up window will appear.  You will have to add an attendee for each ticket you wish to purchase and ultimately check out with your payment information.  If you wish to donate your purchase to sponsor a family, there is a drop down box to designate that in the order form.  If you wish not to go the online route, please contact Stephanie Cox ( or 504-835-3880) or Christy Marino ( or 504-835-3880).
