Description


The Covington Rotary Club is thrilled to welcome Mrs. Gayle Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans and well-known philanthropist, as its distinguished guest speaker for this year's Feeding the Needy luncheon.

Mrs. Gayle Benson


Join us as we gather for food and fellowship with Mrs. Benson while also helping to make the upcoming holiday season a little brighter for thousands of area families in need.

Mrs. Benson, a New Orleans native, is an accomplished business professional and philanthropist with strong ties to the local community. An advocate of faith-based causes and spirituality, Mrs. Benson has been a longtime trusted and valued member of the local Catholic community. She has served on the Archbishop’s Community Appeal campaigns for four different Archbishops over the course of the past 20 years, and has also worked tirelessly with the Archdiocese of New Orleans’ Catholic Charities organization and its umbrella agencies. Mrs. Benson has also shown her commitment to the health and wellness of the New Orleans community with the Gayle and Tom Benson Cancer Center on the main campus of Ochsner Medical Center in Old Jefferson. In addition to serving on the board at Ochsner, she serves on the Audubon Commission, the Greater New Orleans Foundation Board, the Catholic Foundation Board, and the board of Tulane University, along with others across the New Orleans community.

Ticket sales support the Covington Rotary Club's Feeding the Needy initiative, which is celebrating its 17th year. The luncheon paves the way for club members and countless other volunteers to prepare and deliver more than 1,500 cooked turkeys with all the trimmings on Christmas morning, feeding thousands of area families in need each year.

Luncheon seating is limited, and tickets must be purchased online this year. In addition to individual tickets, tables of eight may be purchased and are a great way to gather family and friends together while enjoying the Thanksgiving week.

Sponsorships are also available and include:

• Patron Saint Presenting Sponsor ($10,000)

• Who Dat Nation ($5,000)

• Saints Superfan ($3,000)
