The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) and its partnering associations of the Golf Industry Show are teaming up with New Orleans Habitat for Humanity to host a series of workdays before the trade show opens to help build homes in some of New Orleans’ most devastated areas.
The workdays will be Tuesday, Feb. 3, and Wednesday, Feb. 4, from 7:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. All volunteers will be placed in teams of 15 to work on homes within a particular area. The Golf Industry Show will provide transportation from the New Orleans Morial Convention Center, lunch at the work sites, water, sunscreen and a t-shirt.
“This is the first time the Golf Industry Show has been back to New Orleans since Katrina and we are excited to join our partnering organizations to help the people of this great city,” said GCSAA CEO Mark Woodward, CGCS. “GCSAA has a compassionate membership, so helping the city rebuild is something that our members have felt very strongly about participating in when conference and show returns.”
