Simply pled: We need golfers.
We need your help to make a huge success of this year’s golf tournament that is dedicated to benefit the Santa Cruz Parish Youth Ministry.
When I brought our tournament to the attention of my Chapter brothers we immediately received a pledge for sponsoring a T-box. When I brought it to the attention of my Assembly brothers we immediately received a written pledge of a foursome, which application was completed before I finished my presentation.
It is these types of responses that we like to see more of from throughout the State. We realize that not everyone can attend our event, but at a minimum a pledge of a T-box or a nominal donation from each council will snowball into a substantial amount.
Challenge the Challenger: Competition is a great motivator – Councils should challenge each other to match their contributions.
It goes without saying: Please pass this on to your council members.
Please make checks payable to: FR. BACH – BRO. ANGEL DE SANTA CRUZ COUNCIL 14139, or for other methods of payment, please contact SK Bob Valencia, Golf Director, at the contact information referenced in the flyer and registration form.
Thank you for you help, and God bless you all.
Respectfully requested, and
SK Luis M. Castillo, Jr.
