Subject: LHSAA Flood Relief Opportunity

Good Afternoon All,

This past November the Fore!Kids Foundation in conjunction with the Zurich Classic of New Orleans donated funds to the LHSAA that was used to cover the cost of the State Cross Country Meet timing system. This started a relationship between the foundation and the Zurich Classic which is the New Orleans Open, a PGA Tour golf event.

We have been contacted by the Zurich Classic and the Fore!Kids Foundation and given the opportunity to participate in their “PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge.” This program allows anyone to vote online for the charity of your choice and provides a $10,000 donation to the organization that receives the most votes plus one additional dollar for every vote received. The LHSAA is registered under the name of “LHSAA Flood Relief.”

As most of you know the LHSAA and several of our member schools suffered heavy flood damage this past summer. This is a way for us to generate funds not only to help with LHSAA building and equipment needs but could provide enough funds to assist our member schools that are in need.

I am respectfully encouraging you, your students, coaches, booster club members, parents, and fans to follow the instructions below and cast your vote for “LHSAA Flood Relief.” There is no cost involved but your vote could go a long way in helping the LHSAA and our member schools in the recovery process.

Please read the following simple steps to participate:

We have the chance to win $10,000 PLUS $1 per vote – We need your vote!
