Neighbors served complimentary breakfast and lunch, and a silent auction was open throughout the day. Items from the silent auction were donated by Cabela’s, Bridgeview Gun Club, Spillway Sportsman and many others.

A special thanks to Enterprise Car Sales for being our Platinum sponsor of the event.

“As everyone knows, mental health and substance abuse is an epidemic in our community,” Neighbors president and CEO Steve Webb said. “The Mental Health Association for Greater Baton Rouge is a great organization in need of these funds, so we were glad to help out.”

Neighbors will host “Clays For A Cause, “at the Bridgeview Gun Club again on March 2, 2018. Proceeds from this event will go to the Neighbors Way Scholarship Program. This Scholarship program will help fund the education of local students
