Bishop’s cup supports Catholic Foundation

By Rebecca Harris
MADISON – The Catholic Foundation hosted the 33rd annual Bishop’s Cup Golf Tournament on Thursday, Sept. 17, at Lake Caroline Golf Course. Proceeds from the tournament benefited the Catholic Foundation office and the Rev. Martin Ruane Memorial Trust established by the Bishop’s Cup committee in memory of the Irish priest who died earlier this year.
Father Ruane was a big supporter of The Catholic Foundation and he played in the Bishop’s Cup every year. There were 94 golfers representing parishes across the diocese. After a day of golf, 100 guests gathered for dinner and the live and silent auction at The Mermaid Café. The golf awards were presented to the winners after a silent auction.
The scores were very close. A team for Madison St. Francis Parish sponsored by Bank Plus received first place and Natchez St. Mary Basilica received second place. The Bishop Cup committee would like to thank all the golfers, dinner guests and all who donated to the Rev. Martin Ruane Memorial trust. A special thank you goes out to all of our sponsors, listed below.
