If you live in or near Monroe, Louisiana, and are looking for something but fun and charitable to pencil into your schedule, consider checking out the 9th Annual ANGUS United Way Golf Tournament.
Why You Should Come
Last year’s Annual ANGUS United Way Golf Tournament was a huge success, bringing in $27,000 for the Northeast Louisiana United Way. This year, the tournament hosts have decided to ramp things up with two flights; the shotgun starts are at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Everyone who attends the tournament will get to enjoy delicious food, meet new friends, and have a fantastic time. There will even be door prizes and a silent auction. In the end, the goal of the tournament – aside from having a great time – is to raise as much money for Northeast Louisiana United Way as possible. The question is, will you be there to help raise more than last year?
Planning Your Trip
Reservations for teams for the tournament are on a first-come, first served basis. The deadline to reserve a spot for your team is Sept. 5, so don’t wait too long if you want to get in on the tournament. Obviously, you don’t have to be playing in the tournament to have a good time. There are a lot of other ways for you to participate, win prizes, and contribute to the cause. All you need to do is show up!
The tournament will take place at Chennault Park Golf Course, located at 8475 Millhaven Road in Monroe, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The United Way began helping the community in 1956 and won’t stop anytime soon. The organization fights for the important needs of everyone in the community – education, health, basic needs, and financial stability. Attending the golf tournament is the perfect way to support your community by getting the Northeast Louisiana United Way closer to achieving its Bold Goals for 2018–2025. If you can’t make it to the tournament but still want to volunteer your time to the organization, there are a lot of ways to do so:
- Help a second or third grader from the area to improve their reading skills.
- Teach high schoolers how to keep a budget and save money.
- Assist with United Way Day activities.
- Deliver boxes of food and toiletries to seniors every month.
- Teach cooking, art, or dance classes.
Donating your time and money to a good cause is one of the most rewarding experience you’ll ever have. Reward yourself even more with a new car. Stop by Ryan Honda in Monroe, Louisiana, to test-drive a new set of wheels.
