Media 'Honors' Sheriff Lee

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Harry Lee will be honored as the "headliner of the year" for the Press Club of New Orleans' 40th annual Gridiron Show on Saturday, Oct. 6 at Carlone's Dinner Theater.

That means the popular sheriff will be the butt of a number of skits written and/or acted out on stage by members of the media who chronicle his reign as the self-described "King of Jefferson Parish." This year's Gridiron theme is "Let's Make a Deal."

Proceeds from the evening of irreverent show benefit the Press Club's scholarship fund for metro area high school students and statewide college journalism students. The Patron party begins at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $75 per seat and up to $750 for a table of eight. For more information, call 523-1010.
