NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – It’s a place of hope.

WGNO Good Morning New Orleans features reporter Bill Wood is LIVE at Boys Hope New Orleans.

The New Orleans address is one of 18 across the country and in Latin America.

The mission is to motivate.

Motivate middle and high school kids to rise above disadvantaged backgrounds.

The motivation can move them to become a success in school.

That’s in college.

And then beyond.

If you want to help, there’s an invitation for you.

It’s for the Garden Gala and all you need to know you’ll get when you simply click right here.

It’s Sunday, November 13 in City Park.
