Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — The YMCA will be honoring two big names in Baton Rouge tonight at their Legends Ball.
Former LSU Basketball Coach Dale Brown and former police chief Jeff LeDuff will be the guests of honor.
Both honorees are being recognized today for their continued community involvement.
Though LeDuff will be the last to call himself a legend, he says his work with the youth of Baton Rouge has been nothing but fulfilling.
"I just took the time to talk to them,” stated LeDuff. “I just want them to dream. That's all. I’m no legend, but I’m very grateful for this honor. "
The event starts at 7:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn on Airline Highway. All proceeds will go towards the Baranco-Clark YMCA.
