The Volunteers of America Southeast Louisiana GolfStar Classic is the sole fundraiser benefiting the Adoption and Maternity Program and has gained a reputation as a leading regional charity tournament across Louisiana.


Tournament sponsors, who generously help us carry out this program’s mission, include Jay Trusheim Prudential Financial Professional, offering P&C through Liberty Mutual Insurance, along with Entergy, TPC Louisiana, Fore!Kids Foundation, The New Orleans Advocate and Superior Honda of New Orleans.
