Sports lovers and kids lovers united at the Fore!Kids Foundation’s annual “Golf Ball Gala,” which “tee’d off” at 7 p.m., Friday, November 30. The foundation is one of the premier organizations in the New Orleans area whose efforts help provide “healthcare, education and hope” to New Orleans children by benefitting local charities, including St. Michael’s Special School, Ochsner Pediatric Clinic, Bayou District and First Tee of New Orleans.  

The gala was wonderfully organized by co-chairs Jeanne Gallo and Julie Schexnaildre; and co-captains Chav Pierce and  Damien Serauskas. Mark Romig, CEO of New Orleans Tourism Marketing, served as master of ceremonies throughout the evening.  

The Hyatt’s Empire Ballroom was decked out in a holiday theme, with tinsel and miniature golf balls as the centerpieces on each of the tables. Louisiana Spice provided live music and dancing throughout the evening, with dining provided by Patton’s Catering. The Wine Spectacular Raffle was one of the highlights of the evening. One lucky winner went home with 34 bottles of collectible wine. The evening also featured both a silent and live auction, whose prizes were a golf lover’s dream and included a round of golf with NCAA champion and LSU alum John Peterson, as well as the opportunity to “walk inside the ropes” at the 2013 Zurich Classic with a leading player.
