For the fourth year in a row, Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction partnered with customers and vendors to host another successful charity golf tournament. The foremost animal welfare agency in Louisiana, the LA/SPCA (www.la-spca.org), was the recipient of the fund-raising effort. Seventy-six golfers teed off at 12:30pm on Thursday, Oct. 4, 2013, on a warm, sunny day surrounded by beautiful cypress and oaks at the newly renovated Lakewood Golf Course in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was a fun day of golf, with great jambalaya, refreshing beverages, goody bags and plenty of door prizes.
The auction continued its tradition of community outreach by raising $2,672 during Breast Cancer Awareness month for the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center (www.marybird.org/hammond) in Hammond, La. Auction personnel presented the idea to management and everyone jumped on board to support the effort. Bake sales were held, bracelets and pins were sold, and dealers who donated earned John Dough (auction “money” that dealers use to bid on gifts at the Anniversary and Christmas sale). Employees wore special I wear pink for the cure t-shirts on sale days throughout the month.
Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction has donated or raised over $200,000 in cash and goods to a variety of organizations since opening in May of 2002. For more information visit www.lafcaa.com/community.
