NEW ORLEANS, La — Recognized for their affinity for green, whether it’s the green Girl Scout uniform or their environmental programs, Girl Scout alumnae and supporters in southeast Louisiana are organizing two Centennial fundraisers being held Saturday, June 23, in New Orleans, whose “green” proceeds will benefit the local Girl Scout council.
A FOREver Green 9-Hole Golf Tournament is being held at the Stonebridge Golf Club of New Orleans, 1500 Stonebridge Drive in Gretna, with tee-time at 9 a.m., and that evening, the Girl Scouts Louisiana East’s Centennial Gala, Rhapsody in Green, will be held from 8 to 11 p.m. at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, Two Poydras St., with a patron party at 7 p.m.
Cost of a twosome for the FOREver Green golf tournament is $120, and includes green fees, golf cart, range balls, bounce back round of golf, food, prizes, and beer/drinks. Sponsors include MillerLite and CoorsLight, and additional hole and tournament sponsors are needed.
“Tournament tickets make a great Father’s Day gift and benefit a great cause,” said said Betsy Stoner, gala volunteer chair at Girl Scouts Louisiana East.
According to Stoner, guests at the Rhapsody in Green gala will enjoy an evening of live music, dancing, a silent auction, food, open bar, and much more. Music will be Gina Brown and Anutha Level, and the gala’s Mistress of Ceremonies is Nancy Parker, anchor at Fox 8 News and a proud Girl Scout alumna. Gala patrons and benefactors will enjoy the music by Tim Laughlin Trio during the patron party that precedes the gala.
Gala tickets are $100 each, with a special price of two tickets for $150 if purchased by May 31, and two tickets for $175 after May 31.
