Chipping In For Charity

Local charities score big during
Stirling Properties’ Annual Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament

18th Annual Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament

Stirling Properties hosted its 18th Annual Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament on Monday, October 8th at University Club Plantation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This year’s tournament successfully raised more than $25,000 for local charities!

113 participants enjoyed a variety of friendly competitions in addition to 18 holes of scramble golf tournament play. Congratulations to the 1st Place Low Net winners, Stuart Bonaventure, Ryan Juneau, BJ Branigan and Trent Sandahl. The Low Gross winning team included Andy Coleman, David Laizer, Tommy Buckel and Dennis Shill.

The Longest Drive award went to Marc Bourgeois, and Closest to the Pin prizes were presented to Eric Landry, Paul Geyer and Chip Songy. Additional awards were given for 2nd, 3rd and 4th Low Gross and Low Net. A special shout out to the Highest Gross scoring team, William McKnight, Beau Egan, Elliot Turner and Neal Choppin.

However, the real winners of the day were the local nonprofit organizations that benefited from the tournament proceeds. Ochsner Foundation received $10,000 from the proceeds, and the remaining profits will be distributed to various local charitable causes.

Representatives from Ochsner Foundation were on hand to receive a check for their contributions. Grady Brame, Executive Vice President with Stirling Properties, presented a check to Louisa Post, Ochsner Foundation’s Director of Development for Baton Rouge, 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 to TAF for the LSU Golf Team. 

“A great time—for a great cause—was had by all. We are fortunate to be able to play such an outstanding course, and to have the opportunity to help raise funds for local nonprofit organizations that are doing critical work in our community,” said Brame. “We could not accomplish all of this without the generosity of our tournament sponsors. We want to thank all of our sponsors and everyone who came out to support our event.”

The Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament has contributed more than $239,000 to numerous organizations over the past 18 years.

Thank you to all of our friends and supporters who participated and contributed to the Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament. This event would not be possible without you.
