You Could be in Your Eras Tour Era!
Swifties, are you ready for it?!
There is still hope for getting tickets to TAYLOR SWIFT | THE ERAS TOUR tickets in New Orleans this year! Children’s Hospital New Orleans has announced an exciting opportunity to win suite tickets to the TAYLOR SWIFT | THE ERAS TOUR concert at the Superdome on Saturday, October 26, 2024! The hospital is raffling 28 tickets to the Saturday night show, but this raffle Hits Different – it’s all for the kids! You can feel good about your raffle ticket purchase, win or lose, because the funds are going to a great cause, to help Children’s Hospital New Orleans further its mission of providing the highest quality pediatric healthcare to kids in Louisiana and the Gulf South.
Long story short…
The raffle will have seven winners of four tickets each – 28 total tickets. Even if you don’t win, you will be contributing to fund a new Pediatric Stem Cell Transplant Unit as part of Children’s Hospital’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. There will be a maximum of 5,000 raffle tickets for $200 per ticket. The winners will be drawn at 2 pm on Saturday, March 23, 2024 and notified the same day. Tickets will be transferred to the winners three days before the concert and the tickets cannot be resold.
Here’s the End Game
The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Hospital provides advanced treatments for children with leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, and other childhood cancers and blood disorders. Children’s is the only accredited pediatric stem cell transplant facility in the state, performing bone marrow transplants and CAR-T cell therapy. Children’s is also actively conducting cancer research at the forefront of medicine and has the largest, most experienced group of pediatric cancer specialists in the region, staffed by faculty from LSU Health New Orleans and Tulane University School of Medicine.
Patients undergoing stem cell transplantation are profoundly immunosuppressed and require prolonged hospital admissions that can last months. They are at high risk for infections and require enhanced protection while in the hospital. Pediatric Stem Cell Transplant Units are specially and expertly designed with children’s needs in mind and allow for play and socialization within the unit and outside their room because infection risks are minimized through the HEPA filtration system and separation from patients that may spread infections. This creates a much-improved patient experience, as stem cell transplant patients are often in the hospital for 1-2 months, and sometimes longer.
Children’s Hospital New Orleans cared for 20 transplant patients this year and expects this population to grow as the hospital continues to develop its Stem Cell Transplant and Cellular Therapy Program, including gene therapy for Sickle Cell disease patients which is now FDA-approved and will begin in 2024 as the only facility in Louisiana to offer this life-changing treatment. All proceeds from the TAYLOR SWIFT | THE ERAS TOUR raffle will support this effort.
