On September 22, 2016, Vapor Point is proud to serve as a Platinum Sponsor of the Motiva Convent 2016 United Way Golf Tournament. This year’s event will be held at the Pelican Point Links Course in Gonzales, Louisiana. Last year our cook team won'"Best Overall Food' for our fried ribs, bacon-wrapped shrimp, and jalapeño poppers. This year we'll be cooking up a storm again, so come see us at hole #17, where we’ll be joining our industry peers in promoting this worthy cause.
The Capital Area United Way (CAUW) has more than 400 corporate partners across its ten-parish service area, and the Motiva golf tournament is their largest fund-raising event of the year. Last year the tournament brought in $95,000, which was distributed between the CAUW’s 50 partner agencies and their 72 funded programs via the general campaign fund. These programs focus on basic needs, education, income stability, and healthy living—all of which further the United Way’s vision of a community where everyone is empowered to achieve their full potential. Proceeds from this year’s tournament will again benefit the CAUW’s general campaign fund, a worthy cause made even more crucial by the increased challenges faced by area residents in the aftermath of the area's summer floods.
