Nelsan Ellis Participates at Charity Vampire Baseball Game

March 21, 2010 by  

Nelsan Ellis who portrays the flamboyant short-order cook, Lafayette Reynolds, on Alan Ball hit HBO TV series True Blood joined other celebrities including cast members from Twilight in the “Twilight FanTrips’ Vampire Baseball Cajun-Style game at the Zephyr Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana on Saturday, March 20 , 2010.

The charity Vampire Baseball Cajun-Style game was to benefit Haitian Relief Efforts by the American Red Cross and Hope for Haiti in New Orleans.

Highlights of this unique baseball adventure included watching an exhibition game, getting autographs and photos with the stars, meet and greets, and an exciting after-party and concert.

25% of the net proceeds from each celebrity baseball ticket sale went towards these Haitian Relief organizations to support their ongoing efforts to rebuild lives destroyed by this disaster with a portion of proceeds going to support New Orleans’ non-profit organizations such as The Blood Center and the 9th Ward Field of Dreams.

We will be featuring one of our writer’s experience at the event, but in the meantime, one lucky attendee posted a few photos from the event on her blog featuring a few with Nelsan.  Many thanks to Joanna for posting these wonderful photos of Nelsan from the event!
