The Knights of Columbus from Council 9543 at St. Francis of Assisi in Madison will take another big swing at the costs of seminarian education with their annual Floyd Q. Doolittle Memorial Golf Classic. Open to the public, the four-person scramble is set for Saturday, March 28 at Whisper Lake Golf Club and starts at 1 p.m.
“This is a fundraiser for seminarian education and provides crucial financial assistance for future priests of the Diocese of Jackson, as it costs approximately $37,000 a year to educate one new seminarian,” said Tunney Vandevender, past Grand Knight at Council 9543. “It’s an exciting day of golf, fellowship, and celebration. We’ve raised nearly $70,000 over the last four years.”
“Please consider being a sponsor and/or a participant. There will be silent auctions for a Smart TV from Cowboy Maloney and a set of all-weather tires from Nokian among other prizes. Lunch, dinner, and beverages are included in your registration.”
