The FairPlay Foundation is a New Orleans-based non
The FairPlay Foundation was established in 1995 by a group of
New Orleanians concerned about the future of our youth. Since its
inception the foundation has dedicated its work to the betterment of
the lives of kids in the New Orleans community. The FairPlay
Foundation is a New Orleans-based non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer
organization with one mission: to play a vital role in the education
and development of kids, especially here in the New Orleans area.
The Foundation is dedicated to instilling in young people the
values and principles of “fair play.” Those values include integrity,
honesty and hard work. We are devoted and committed to
reinstating these traditional virtues as common denominators in our
schools, neighborhoods and playgrounds.
Presents the 13th Annual
We pledge to make honesty, integrity and fairness a standard with
all events involving the FairPlay Foundation.

courage to reach it ~

FairPlay Foundation’s
Youth Summit “Exposure”
(12:00 pm to 2:00 pm)
Hosted by Dillard University
Never have the words of Mary McLeod Bethune been
more relevant than today. The FairPlay Foundation
strives to enhance the determination, the vision and the
courage that she describes in the youth of New Orleans.
For more than a decade, we at the FairPlay Foundation
have devoted our efforts to helping shape the future of
New Orleans through our signature event, the “New
Orleans Celebrity Open” golf tournament. This is a total
volunteer effort! Thanks to golfers like yourself and our
family of corporate partners, each of our twelve
tournaments has made a significant contribution to
schools and playgrounds in New Orleans metropolitan
Once again, we're inviting You, Your Golfing Friends and
Business Associates to join us for this fun-filled event.
The stature of our effort will only be enhanced by your
