Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — The city's newest casino has signed on to sponsor the Zurich Classic Pro- Am of Baton Rouge.
L’Auberge will sponsor the fifth annual tournament that will feature PGA tour players and amateurs in the same playing field.
They'll all be playing for a good cause - the Fore!Kids Foundation raises money for children service organizations across the country.
The organization's CEO, Steve Worthy, says they're thrilled to be part of the Baton Rouge tournament this year.
"I think this is going to be a big local boost for the tournament, and a big boost for Baton Rouge,” said Worthy. “This is not that about them (L’Auberge). They are a true community partner."
