2012 Memorial Realtor Golf Outing Benefits Homeward Bound

The Lafayette Regional Association of Realtors (LRAOR) sponsored an annual golf outing to benefit Homeward Bound.  Homeward Bound is dedicated to Providing Housing and Fight Homelessness and is a natural organization for realtors to support. Each year the LRAOR raises thousands of dollars for this worthy cause.  2012 was no exception.  The annual golf outing is a fun way to support the cause.  On Wednesday September 5th, the event was held at the Lafayette Country Club.

The Club did a great job helping to arrange the golf scramble along with a wonderful luncheon.  Team Howlett (Meg, Eric, James and honorary member Lindsey) of Coldwell Banker Shook were out in full support of the event!  Taking the opportunity to actually play some golf, we had a great time meeting up with many people. Thanks for the shirts Lindsey!

Besides the golf event, there were many raffles and an auction for gift baskets.  Thanks to so many people for helping to arrange.  Several auctioned gift baskets raised over $200- 400 apiece for the cause.  The food was great.

Back to golf, Lafayette Country Club has a wonderful 9 hole course which was both challenging and fun.  Despite the slight interruptions from a storm passing thru, the course was well prepared. Coldwell Banker Shook sponsored a putting contest and several other companies sponsored holes to support the benefit for Homeward Bound.

One of our favorite sponsor sites was the Advantage Title tent after hole 4.  Hot dip and chips, a putting contest for scratch tickets and some cool refreshing beverages.  Turn off your phones and enjoy the day after this tent.

All in all, the day was a lot of fun, but more important, we helped raised money fighting homelessness.
