Volunteers of America Greater New Orleans’ hosted its annual GolfStar Classic on Tuesday, March 18, commemorating more than two decades of essential fundraising for the organization’s adoption program.  The adoption program, one of Volunteers of America’s oldest programs, has created loving families for many decades.  Last year, Volunteers of America placed more than 15 infants with forever families.  The GolfStar Classic is the sole fundraiser benefitting the adoption program.

This year, the Classic was held at TPC Louisiana, a championship course home to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.  Presenting sponsor, Wendy’s, donated $18,500 to help fund the adoption program.  New to the Classic this year, one lucky person went home with the keys to a brand new Mercedes CLA 250, raffled off at the tournament to benefit the adoption program.
