Teeing Up for MDA
Bossier City Firefighters Local 1051 will hold the 3rd Annual Vernon Gobert Memorial MDA Golf Tournament Monday, April 30th, at Palmetto Country Club in Benton. Cost is $400 per team and all the proceeds go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The tournament will consist of a Four-Man Scramble with shotgun starts at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. It'll also include beverages and prizes for participants and feature a fish fry from 11 to 1. The tournament is held in memory of Bossier City firefighter Vernon Gobert, who passed away in 2007 after fighting a courageous battle with cancer. Last year's event was a great success and helped Local 1051 earn the MDA's 2011 Golden Boot Award for being the top fundraising fire department in Louisiana.
