Exciting news! Our chapter recently hosted its first in-person fundraiser/ event since the onset of the pandemic. The golf tournament went off flawlessly due to the efforts of the entire board. Special THANKS to Britney Ford (Chapter Coordinator) and Hudson Lemoine (Golf Tournament Chair).
The tournament was held on March 29 at the University Club of Baton Rouge, and we raised a total of $42,139.76! Out of an abundance of caution, the tournament committee initiated additional safety precautions this year including contactless registration and elimination of the after party following the tournament. Moving forward, we are considering incorporating technology such as Event Groove or Rally Up to further streamline the process.
Since we were the first chapter to host a fundraiser in over a year, the board felt it important we contribute the proceeds to the LRAEF and Hospitality Political Action Committee, designating $20,000 to each organization.
Thanks to all chapter members, and I look forward to seeing everyone at an in-person event soon.
