As a partner of the New Orleans Saints, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort will host Legends Weekend at Sandestin March 8-10, and will welcome former Saints players and Saintsations to the resort and include many Saints-themed activities. Saints legends attendees include Deuce McAllister, Randall Gay, Michael Lewis, Tracy Porter, Dalton Hilliard, Tyrone Hughes, Robert Meachem, Devery Henderson, Pat Swilling and Jeff Charleston.
“We’re rolling out the black and gold to welcome the Saints legends for the weekend, all to support Sandestin Foundation for Kids,” said Sara Becnel, vice president of development for Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. “Sandestin is already a favorite getaway for Saints fans, so to host such an amazing event with the Saints just made sense.”
