Louisiana’s First Choice Auto Auction raised $3,000 for Options through its fifth annual Charity Golf Tournament at Lakewood Golf Club in New Orleans. Proceeds from the event also benefited two other nonprofit agencies, a news release from Options said.

“The auction owners, John and Georgianne Poteet, spread good will wherever they go and set a phenomenal example of community commitment,” Options CEO Sylvia Bush said. “John and Georgianne are amazing, longtime supporters of Options. We are continually blessed by their generosity and friendship.”

John Poteet also serves on the board of directors at Options, a private, nonprofit agency that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities live and work in the community. Learn more about Options at and Louisiana’s First Choice Auto Auction at
