Frenchy is super-excited to team up with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, wife Brittany Brees and Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey and his wife, Camila, to raise charitable funds in conjunction with the legendary CBS network reality show, the Amazing Race.
“Drew and Matthew are two of my heroes – men who have reached the top of their profession, but remain grounded in who they are and what they want to contribute to make our world a better place,” Frenchy said. “I am humbled and honored to be a part of this very special project and to be included in a legendary TV show, the Amazing Race.”
The event kicks off Friday, April 7, with the Rules Party and reception at the Ritz Carlton, New Orleans. The Amazing Race begins the next morning in the French Quarter and is followed by a private concert at the House of Blues that night featuring Kenny Chesney.
Frenchy will be capturing the experience on canvas to help raise money for the Drew Brees Foundation and the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation. Proceeds benefit after school fitness and wellness programs in the New Orleans area, as well as charities throughout the United States.

About the Brees Dream Foundation:

Since its inception 12 years ago, Drew and Brittany Brees have contributed over $25,000,000 to charitable causes globally through the foundation.
About the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation:
While filming Dazed and Confused, Matthew McConaughey was struggling with the passing of his father. It was during this time that he was overtaken by a saying that would soon change his life: “just keep livin” or “j.k. livin” as it’s called.
As life continued forward, he found that the just keep livin approach helped him navigate through the good times and bad times, stay true to his ideals, and make the best out of this adventure we call life.
When Matthew established his foundation, naming it “just keep livin” was a natural fit. It captured so many aspects of health and well-being and applies to all facets of life. He included his father, “Pop”, on the logo in remembrance of the saying’s origin.
The just keep livin foundation is based on the idea that part of living is about giving back. In addition to creating things you love with the people you love, Matthew firmly believes in helping others and in being a good neighbor.
