After very careful deliberation in these unprecedented times, we have made the prudent but difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Catholic United Financial Foundation Annual Golf Tournament. We are working to secure a date in September 2020 with Keller Golf Course to reschedule.
The staff and board of our Foundation, along with our medical and public agency leaders, believe this is the responsible action to take in an effort to keep everyone safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and not take valuable resources away from our local health system. The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, sponsors, staff and community remains our top priority.
We know that our strongest supporters are disappointed to have to wait for the fall to get together for such a great cause. They continue to help us provide hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of Catholic education in our region. I am confident that when we get together this fall we will once again be in a strong position for fellowship, fun and a great day of golf. We have the utmost hope that we will all be back open for business and growing stronger every day.
In the meantime, the Foundation continues to be open and playing a vital part in our response and recovery. Our Catholic United Response has donated critical personal protective gear such a N95 respirators, gloves, and bleach to area hospitals. We have food items that were set to be used for this year’s golf event that were donated to the local food pantries. We also are continuing to work with our donors and parishes to help them support the many important and crucial nonprofit organizations working for the common good.
Looking ahead, we sincerely hope you are able to join us this fall for the 2020 Catholic United Financial Foundation Annual Golf Tournament, and we look forward to being back again in May 2021 for our regular schedule golf event. We believe that we will come back from this crisis even stronger – because together we are always stronger.
Thank you and stay safe,
President and Chair of the Board
