Charities Receive Proceeds from 2014 Raffle House

Tuesday was one of our favorite days of the year because we were able to give $100,000 to be shared by our 4 great partner charities through the “Raising the Roof for Charity” Raffle House.  We are thrilled to support our local charities as they make a difference in our community.  Each and every one of them improve the quality of life for our area.  Thank you to St. Tammany Hospital Foundation, Habitat for Humanity-St. Tammany West, Good Samaritan Ministry and Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Louisiana for all their hard work. Since 1994 we have been able to give over $4.8 million back to local charities.
