St. Joachim Golf Classic Raises $ 15,000 More Than Last Year

April 06, 2010|By Cornelia Fuertes

St. Joachim School held its 9th Annual Golf Classic last Thursday, March 25th, 2010 at the Costa Mesa Country Club. The event, which was also open to the public, proved to be an absolute success and raised more than $25,000 - an amazing $15,000 more than last year.

Over one hundred people participated in this year’s event, with about 90 golfers and others joining for dinner, awards, raffle and an auction in the evening. The raffle’s grand prize awarded $800 to the lucky winner, and one of the many desirable items auctioned off was a private party for up to 30 children at the Newport Sports Museum, with food from TK Burger included.

In recent years, the St. Joachim Golf Classic has become a St. Joachim tradition with a strong following, attracting more people every year. Tim Hobin and Stephanie McFetters, the two organizers this year, are excited about the event’s success. “We started working last August on making this event a memorable day. After all these months of preparation, it’s nice to see great results like this.”

Principal Sr. Kathleen Marie, who attended the dinner and the auction, gives credit to the parents and friends of the school. “…I must say that I feel so blessed that our school has such a wonderful and giving community. We make one great team in providing the best education available to our children.”  The funds raised at this year’s Golf Classic will go towards new teaching materials, making it possible to provide an education that is up to the latest standards. A portion will also go to benefit tuition assistance, making an outstanding Catholic education accessible to many children.
