The Hahnville boys soccer team is holding a No White Flags game when they host rival Destrehan on Thursday Dec. 5.

†Donations collected from this event will go to the Gleason Initiative Foundation, which honors former New Orleans Saint Steve Gleason in support of ALS research and public awareness of ALS. †

Tickets are sold at the gate for all games.†
