Local charities score during Stirling Properties’ Annual Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament
Stirling Properties hosted its 17th Annual Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament on Monday, October 9th at University Club Plantation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 114 golfers participated in the scramble event and were treated to a great day of food, fun and fellowship—along with a little friendly competition—all for a good cause.
Congratulations to the 1st Place Low Net winners, Jerry Berggren, Keith Bischoff, Jared Giovingo and Steve Lousteau. The Low Gross winning team included Rick Perry, Scott Brame, Sr., Scott Brame and Jimmy Maurin. The Longest Drive award went to Blake Bailey, and Closest to the Pin prizes were presented to Keith Rotolo, David Wascom and Kasey Dorr. Additional awards were given for 2nd, 3rd and 4th Low Gross and Low Net as well as Highest Gross Score (you know who you are).
But the real winners were the local nonprofit organizations that benefited from the proceeds. This year’s tournament successfully raised more than $25,000 for local charities! In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center Foundation received $10,000 from the proceeds. The remaining profits were distributed to various local charitable causes.
Representatives from Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center Foundation were on hand to receive a check for their contributions. Grady Brame, Executive Vice President with Stirling Properties, presented a check to Todd Stevens, President and CEO of Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center during an awards celebration and cocktail reception following the tournament. Rick Perry, President and CEO of Tiger Athletic Foundation, was also presented with a $1,000 check in honor of the LSU Golf Team.
“Despite a challenging weekend due to Hurricane Nate threatening the Gulf Coast, the 17th Annual Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament proceeded as planned and was a huge success,” said Brame. “We were once again able to raise funds for local nonprofit organizations that are doing such great work right here in our communities. We are grateful for the generosity of our tournament sponsors and thank everyone who came out to support us. See you next year!”
The Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament has contributed more than $214,000 to numerous organizations over the past 17 years, with Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center Foundation being the majority beneficiary of proceeds. Since 2004, $127,000 has been donated to the center in support of its cancer research and care-giving efforts.
