Be a Fairy Godmother, and Grant Us Three Wishes

                                         

WISH NUMBER 1:  Ever imagined you had a magic wand and could just close your eyes, wave it around, and suddenly everything is made more beautiful?  Wouldn’t you love to be able to turn less into more and convert pumpkins into carriages, mice into footmen, and rags into ballgowns? Well, on this special day, you can (figuratively) do something magical.  Today you have the power to be a fairy godmother, and WRBH would be honored to be your Cinderella    Today, May 6th, is the day you’ve been hearing about for weeks: GiveNola Day, where any donation you make over $10 dollars to WRBH receives an extra bit of matching money.  If you’ve ever thought about donating, but didn’t know how far your money would go, now is the perfect time to pull out that credit card because your money has more weight today.  You have until midnight tonight to use your special powers to do good works and transform your money into something more, and just like Cinderella, WRBH would be so grateful to get a chance to go to the ball.  Here’s how:

 WISH NUMBER 2:  Want that wonderful feeling to last?  There’s a way to keep it going throughout the year, and this is as easy as pie, as easy as one two three, as easy as buying on Amazon (which for me, unfortunately is a bit TOO easy.)  I’ll let David Benedetto tell you how you can continue to be a fairy godmother for WRBH:

WISH NUMBER 3:  And finally,  The Pat Browne Jr. Golf Tournament is on Friday, May 9th at the Audubon Golf Course, and we would for you to take some time out of your busy schedules and support us.  Registration and lunch begins at 12:30 p.m., with the shotgun start commencing at 1:30 pm.  It’s going to be a wonderful day (believe me, we’ve been watching the weather reports and praying that we won’t experience monsoon season in one day like last year…and the year before that) and with the prospect of sunshine and clear skies we’re really anticipating a delightful event.  There’s still time to enter to play in the tournament, sponsorships are still available, and this year offers some different and delightful incentives to participate, such as a sandwich lunch from Subway and the Mellow Mushroom, ice cold beer from NolaBrew, delectable pralines, and to cool off, frosty sno-balls  There will also be a crawfish boil and raw oyster bar at the completion of play.  Our prizes are pretty spectacular, too: 3rd place gets Perlis gift certificates, 2nd prize is tasting room passes for Tales of the Cocktail, and 1st place receives golf and a one night stay at the Grand Bear in Biloxi.  What makes this tournament so special, though, is the great man who inspired it all–Pat Browne, who in 1966, after being a stellar all-around athlete and gifted golfer, lost his sight in an automobile accident but never stopped achieving the goals he had set for himself throughout his life– becoming a trial lawyer, the chairman of a local homestead association, and then  winning the U.S. Blind Golf Association National Championship 23 times.  His son, Pat Browne Jr., is the tournament chair this year, and we are so proud that he is keeping his family tradition going and honoring his father in this way. 
If you are interested in participating in our tournament, please call Natalia Gonzalez at 504-899-1144 or contact her via email at natalia@wrbh.org   Our fax number is 504-899-1165.
