Golf enthusiasts, get ready for the 2018 Zurich Golf Classic on for April 23-29, 2018 to be held in Avondale, LA. The Zurich Golf Classic is presented by Zurich Insurance Company and is the major fundraiser for the Fore!Kids Foundation. Zurich Golf Classic has raised more than $17 million for 100+ charities in the Metropolitan New Orleans area and supports St. Michael’s Special School for developmentally disabled children. In addition, Zurich has participated in “Blessings in a Backpack”, which is a program that fills up backpacks with food and distributes to elementary school children in the Greater New Orleans area. The backpacks of food feed needy children over the weekend when there is no school breakfast or lunch available.

The first Zurich Classic Golf Tournament was held in 2005 and returned in 2006, becoming the first sporting event to return to the New Orleans area following Hurricane Katrina. Along with the charities, Zurich Golf Classic also generates a $40 million economic impact to the New Orleans area.
