The Southwest Louisiana Fellowship of Christian Athletes 2017 Golf Event was held on Friday afternoon May 12 at the Lake Charles Country Club.
FCA is THANKFUL and GRATEFUL that we were blessed with such a beautiful day for a golf event, as well as, express our sincere appreciation to each of the event sponsors (see photo), the 52 Hole Sponsors, the 30 teams that played on Friday, and to the Lake Charles Country Club for doing such a fantastic job hosting the event.
The purpose of the FCA Golf Event is to raise funds for the local FCA Ministry to SWLA Coaches and Athletes. This years event was a success and allows us to send athletes to the 2017 FCA Sports Camp, McNeese athletes to the Louisiana College Athlete Retreat, as well as provide FCA God's Game Plan Bibles to the leaders in the FCA Huddles in SWLA.
