Golf-tourney-530

Girl Scouts Louisiana East is seeking sponsorships for its FOREver Green Golf Classic, being held Friday, October 6 at New Orleans City Park’s new Bayou Oaks golf course. All proceeds benefit Girl Scouts Louisiana East and its leadership development program for girls.

 “In Girl Scouts we know that when you invest in girls, they have the power to create meaningful change in the world,” said board member Dr. Erica Murray, who is chairing the golf classic. “We need the community’s support as we develop leaders who never give up, who try new things, and who make their ideas a reality.”

The championship level golf course, designed by renowned architect Rees Jones, features many of the park’s historic oak trees and lagoons, and was designed to accommodate players of all skill levels.

Activities include an 11 a.m. lunch and pre-event golf show, prior to the 1 p.m. shotgun start, scramble format, with an awards reception and dinner at 6 p.m. Sponsorship packages, ranging from $500 to $25,000 are available and include custom signage on course, printed and online collateral, and other benefits.

A foursome is $1,000 with single player fee of $250, and all player packages include range balls, lunch, dinner, and unlimited beverages. Player gift items will include items such as: polo shirt, golf balls, cap, golf tees and more.  Players and interested sponsors may register online at www.forevergreengolfclassic.com.

The Golf tournament is one of two fundraisers being held in October by the local council. The Juliette Gordon Low Leadership Luncheon has been set for Tuesday, October 31, at the Audubon Tea Room in New Orleans. It is named for the Girl Scouts’ founder, who was born on Halloween.
