Chalmette High School Football Team Benefits from the Generosity of Community Partners

Chalmette, LA - The Chalmette High School football team was the recent beneficiary of a generous gift by Chuck and Rae Ann Williams, the owners of Meme’s Bar and Grille. After hearing about the logistical challenges and costs associated with the school groups traveling to a playoff game in Monroe, the Williams sprang into action, donating $2500 to help cover the cost. 

Rae Ann Williams said her husband, Chuck, is a CHS alumnus and, after hearing about the plight of the team, decided to help.  

“Hearing about the needs of the team really touched Chuck,” Rae Ann recalled. “We have been so blessed and are so grateful for the support of this community, we wanted to do this for the team.”

Head Coach Jason Tucker said this generous donation was both needed and appreciated. 

“During this time of giving, we are really grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Williams for their incredible generosity. Our Owl family really appreciates the support and kindness they showed to us. It was a big gesture from a couple with really big hearts. We can’t thank them enough.”
