Entergy New Orleans’ annual golf tournament raises more than $70,000 for The Power to Care Program
NEW ORLEANS – Entergy New Orleans hosted its annual golf tournament at English Turn Golf & Country Club, raising more than $70,000 for Entergy’s The Power to Care program, which is administered by the New Orleans Council on Aging. Entergy New Orleans employees, community members and corporate partners formed 26 teams to compete in an 18-hole scramble.
Burns & McDonnell was the exclusive presenting sponsor, Black and Veatch was the Platinum Sponsor, and Primoris and Aptim were Eagle Sponsors for this year’s tournament. The New Orleans Council on Aging will administer the money raised to assist older adults and customers with disabilities in Orleans Parish who need bill payment assistance through The Power to Care program.
"This is just another way that Entergy New Orleans is helping customers who may be struggling to pay their bills," said tournament coordinator Nyka Scott, Director of Public Affairs, Entergy New Orleans. “We want to thank all of our sponsors and everyone who donated to support our more vulnerable customers in the community.”
Through Entergy's The Power to Care program, local nonprofit agencies, employees and generous customers throughout our service territory have helped provide emergency bill payment assistance to older adults and customers with disabilities in their time of need. Entergy shareholders double the impact of contributions by matching all donations to the program, up to $1 million.
