Catholic Charities Annual Golf Day
The Annual Catholic Charities Golf Day raises funds to support Centacare’s Auricht House which provides respite care for families with children with disabilities. The event is possible due to our Major Sponsors, Southern Cross Care and the Whelan family. Also the dedicated support of our Tee sponsors and players continues to make the day a success. Players challenge themselves for a range of trophies and prizes including the Tom Fogarty Memorial Trophy, the Michael McInerney Trophy, the John Ellis Memorial Trophy and the Helen Kain Trophy.
This year's event was held on September 11 at the Westward Ho Golf Club. Organised by the Southern Cross Golf Club.
Catholic Charities would like to thank the sponsors of the event, the Whelan family and Southern Cross Care, and the Catholic Charities Golf Day Committee, especially Peter McCarthy and Michael Griffin.
