The Covington Rotary Club is thrilled to announce that Mrs. Gayle Benson, New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner and well-known philanthropist, will be the distinguished guest speaker at its 2018 Feeding the Needy fundraising luncheon.
The 8th annual luncheon will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 20, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Briggs Assembly Center on the St. Paul’s School campus. Luncheon seating is limited, and tickets must be purchased online this year through the link at
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.

“Please purchase your tickets and sponsorships early, as we expect a sell-out crowd this year,” Baldwin said. “Join us as we all help make a difference in the lives of so many, especially the needy children, this Christmas.”
“We are delighted and thankful that Mrs. Benson has chosen to give her time as the keynote speaker at this important event,” Feeding the Needy co-founder and organizer John Baldwin said. “Her leadership of our community’s beloved Saints and Pelicans, as well as her numerous philanthropic efforts and support of charitable organizations, make her the ideal choice to address our 2018 luncheon guests.”
