    LCF Kicks off Year-Long 20th Anniversary Celebration with the Clean Fuels Classic

    Presenting Sponsor: Paretti Family of Dealerships

    When Louisiana Clean Fuels stakeholders and supporters gathered at Pelican Point Country Club on March 13, 2020, no one realized that this would be one last "hurrah" before the threat of COVID-19 shut down the state.

    And what a hurrah it was! Over 50 people turned out for a fun day of golf, Bloody Marys, and a shot at driving home in a brand new Jaguar IPACE, the reward for a hole-in-one at the hole sponsored by Presenting Sponsor Paretti Family of Dealerships. Players sent golf balls flying in this scramble-style tournament all while enjoying on-course food and beverages such as a fish fry hosted by Waste Management and a wing bar sponsored by a Covington Orthopedics.

    The day ended with an awards party sponsored by ROUSH CleanTech during which the two Paretti Family of Dealerships teams took 1st and 3rd place in the tournament while the Covington Orthopedics team left with the 2nd place prize. LCF then raffled off a variety of fun prizes, including a cuff bracelet from local artist Mimosa Handcrafted and a 60” flat-screen TV donated by Covington Orthopedics.

    All in all, everyone had a fun day out on the course, a final spot of calm sunlight before the storm. LCF would like to thank all of our sponsors who helped make the golf tournament possible and the players who came out to show their support.

    As part of our year-long anniversary celebration, LCF will host a 20th Anniversary Gala this fall which will be held on November 5th at the Estuary at the Water Campus in Baton Rouge. The Clean Fuels Classic was such a resounding success that we are planning to host the event again next year !
