May 20, 2019 – Annual Fundraising Golf Tournament
The Knights of Columbus will host a golf tournament to benefit the Mother Teresa Maternity Home and other local charities at the Cameron Park Country Club on May 20, 2019. For the first time, the Holy Trinity Council will join the Monsignor Hayes Council of St. Patrick’s Parish to put on the event. This begins a new chapter in the fundraising efforts that follows a 16-year tradition which the Knights of St. Patrick’s in Placerville have graciously hosted. This is a major fundraising event that the Mother Teresa Maternity Home relies on each year, and we’re excited and appreciative of the support and resources of the Holy Trinity Council.
The entry fee is $175 per person and includes golf, cart, tee prize, door prize, breakfast, lunch, dinner and refreshments on the course. Dinner only or extra dinner tickets are $50. There is a limit of 144 golfers and 60 additional dinner-only guests, so sign up early! Registration is from 8:00-9:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10:00 a.m. You’re not required to register as a foursome. And, of course, exciting raffle and auction prizes will be available!

Our “Fund – A- Need,” gave everyone an opportunity to participate in the funding of the much needed Education Fund. This fund will be used to assist our residents who have had their education disrupted by moves, abuse and poverty. The fund will be used to pay for high school and community college courses, testing fees, driver training and licensing fees, uniforms and equipment as needed. One of our goals is to have them leave Mother Teresa Maternity Home as a more educated woman with the skills of a productive member of our community.
Through the generosity of the sponsors, donors and guests, the event will help support the Mother Teresa Maternity Home for the coming year. Be sure to mark your calendar for the 17th Annual event on February 1, 2020.
