8th annual Avra Johnson Ramsay Memorial Golf Classic
Due to overwhelming interests, for the first time, the tournament will host two flights with the morning flight teeing off at 8 a.m. and the afternoon flight begins at 1 p.m.
This tournament was created eight years ago by Russell and Di Lauve after the sudden death of Avra Johnson Ramsay, 21, who left behind a husband and their 2 year old son, Grayden.
Avra was a former St. Charles Parish resident and the daughter of Stephen and Cindy Johnson of Paradis and Janice (Tissie) Gray of Houston, TX.
Proceeds from this tournament will provide a $3,000 scholarship to a Hahnville High School graduate.
The format is an 18 hole, 4-man scramble with an entry fee of $80 per player.
The fee includes cart, green fees, jambalaya, a pig roast, all you can eat and drink, door prizes and ditty bags containing awesome gifts.
A DJ will keep the music playing all day long. Several raffle tickets will be available to purchase for $1 with a chance to win a BBQ pit, an LSU fishing rod, a jambalaya pot and a charter fishing trip as well as tickets for 50/50 chance.
Participants will also have a chance to place a bid on several auction items including New Orleans Saints Memorabilia, tickets to the Arena Bowl, tickets to a VooDoo game, tickets to the 2009 Sugar Bowl and a Seafood table valued at $800.
Anyone interested in playing golf or sponsoring a hole can contact Russell Lauve at (985)785-6811 or Stephen Johnson at (985)758-5101 or email email@example.com.
