We Care

At Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction we care about our community, a philosophy reflected in our daily operations and our commitment to local, regional, and national charities.

We Give

We do a variety of fund raising throughout the year including our Annual Charity Golf Tournament in October, Options fund raising season, and special auction events like our Tailgate and Anniversary sale. Our customers, staff, and vendors join forces and whole heartedly support so many great causes. Through this collective spirit of giving we enrich our community and our own lives.
Since opening our auction bay doors in May 2002, Louisiana’ s 1st Choice Auto Auction, with help from employees, vendors and customers, raised over $700,000 in cash and goods. Our 6th Annual Charity Golf Tournament raised $26,000 which was donated to Options, the LASPCA, and Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. Our Tailgate event in 2015 raised $25,000 for Hunter’s Hope, a charity started by Jim and Jill Kelly in memory of their son Hunter. We are grateful for the generosity and commitment of all who participate in our events and support these worthy causes.
