The LRA Acadiana Chapter celebrated a triumphant inaugural golf tournament on October 16 at The Wetlands Golf Course in Lafayette. A perfect backdrop of clear blue skies and crisp breezes set the stage for a day of golf, all in support of a worthy cause—the proceeds benefiting LRA programs, notably ProStart.
The team from Superior Grill clinched the first-place victory, and in a playful nod, Randy Daniel, Acadiana Chapter President, humorously attributed their win to abstaining from their tempting frozen margaritas they were expertly serving, giving them a distinct edge.
A heartfelt expression of gratitude goes out to our generous sponsors whose support made the LRA Acadiana Chapter's inaugural golf tournament a resounding success: Ben E. Keith, Shilling's (Mike's Hard Lemonade, Corona, & Bud Light), Lafayette CVB, Tony Chachere's, Louisiana Seafood, Mel's Diner, Republic National Distributing Company (Pernod Richard), Coca-Cola, Sysco, Performance Foodservice, LRA Workers' Comp, Loop Linen, Buffalo Wild Wings, Raising Cane's, and Cintas.
Special thanks are also extended to the participating restaurants and dedicated members who ensured our golfers were not only well-equipped but well-fed, including Fezzo's, Prejean's, Mel's Diner, Deano's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Superior Grill, Mercy Kitchen/La Pizzeria, Ruffino's on the River, Zea's, Tony Chachere's, Petroleum Club of Lafayette, Sysco, Capitol City Produce, and Ben E. Keith.
The success of this event not only showcased the skill and camaraderie of the participating teams but also demonstrated the community's commitment to supporting the LRA’s meaningful initiatives. Congratulations to all involved for a memorable day of golf for a good cause!
