There are several Catholic fraternal organizations around the world. Their mission is to support the parish, including charitable fundraising efforts. The largest of these organizations is the Knights of Columbus. In my parish, among the Knights’ largest fundraisers is the annual Golf Classic.
We have had 3 of these annual events so far and they have been a huge success, raising many thousands of dollars for charity. A large, but limited, number of golfers can be accommodated – which are always fully sold-out. Corporate sponsors of all sizes also sign-up at different levels of sponsorship. Wonderful silent auction items are donated from many generous sources.
Golfers enjoy breakfast, carts, 18 holes on an exceptional course and lunch all included with their ticket. The silent auction is always popular, as are raffle tickets and mulligan purchases. It is a huge amount of work and the guys who have led the organization work are amazing, but it has never disappointed!
