Community


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 fundraising throughout the year including our Annual Charity Golf Tournament in October, Options fundraising season, and special auction events like our Tailgate and Anniversary sale. Our customers, staff, and vendors join forces and wholeheartedly 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 9th Annual Charity Golf Tournament raised $28,000 which was donated to Options, the LASPCA, and Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. Our Geaux Pink fundraiser in October 2018 raised 15,000 for Mary Bird Perkins. We are grateful for the generosity and commitment of all who participate in our events and support these worthy causes.

We Support

We will continue to spread our signature “lagniappe” in future charitable endeavors. It’s who we are and who we are called to be. Please join us in supporting these extraordinary organizations and allow them to continue the invaluable work they do for their clients. Click on the links below to learn more.
