2013 Golf Classic Brochure
The Catholic Foundation’s 11th Annual Golf Classic by every measure was again a huge success. The event, held on June 4 at Gaillardia Country Club, sported 204 golfers in both morning and afternoon sessions.
In addition to the golf played on a great weather Monday in June, a lunch, wine & cheese gathering, silent auction and awards dinner were held. The net proceeds of the event was almost $75,000 and will be split with half going proportionally to the 21 Catholic Schools and remaining half going to the Catholic Schools Endowment Fund. The Endowment Fund is set up to support Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese, maintain the quality education and make it affordable to more students. In the last 11 Golf Classic events, the Catholic Foundation has raised over $300,000 cumulative for the Endowment Fund.
