Each year a portion of the proceeds from this community ride will go directly to Entergy’s The Power to Care.
“At Entergy, we believe we power life by adding value for our customers, our communities and our employees,” said Leo Denault, Chairman and CEO of Entergy. “Bike the Big Easy is a great way for our employee’s to get involved in a community activity that celebrates 100 miles of bike paths in the city, boosts local tourism, promotes healthier eco-friendly lifestyles and helps our neighbors through the Power to Care.”
The Power to Care. No one should have to choose between food or medicine and electricity. But sadly, many elderly and disabled individuals face these choices every day. Through The Power to Care, local nonprofit agencies are able to provide emergency bill payment assistance to seniors and disabled individuals in crisis. None of the donations are used for fundraising or administrative purposes, so 100% of your contribution will go to help those in need. Plus, The Power to Care doubles the impact of new pledges and one-time donations through matching shareholder contributions — up to $500,000 annually. For example, if you donate $25, then Entergy shareholders will donate $25. You have the power to provide immediate help and hope for those in need.
