By Harold Keller / L’Observateur / October 12, 1998

Golf tournaments have become very popular fund-raising events while providing those participating with a day of golf, fun and fellowship. Myfriends, Danny and Sue Louque, owners of Quality Machine Works Inc. ofGrand Point, have decided to host the company’s first benefit golf classic.

I am flattered and honored that they have designated Get High on Life Inc.

as the non-profit organization that will be the recipient of this year’s proceeds.

Get High on Life was founded in February 1980 and its main focus is to help individuals who are struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, or any family crisis. I have had the privilege of counseling individuals andfamilies who seek assistance and help to arrange further treatment or counseling, if necessary.

I’ve also had the opportunity to be a motivational speaker at many schools, businesses, churches, civic organization and other facilities throughout the state.

The golf classic will be held at Pelican Point Golf Club in Gonzales, on Monday, Oct. 26. The entrance fee is $400 per team, or $100 per individual. Singles will be assigned to a team. The fee includes green fees, cart,mulligans, range balls, shirt, unlimited refreshments, light lunch, and dinner.
