Save the Date-2nd Annual Golf Outing

Our 2nd annual St. Jude CYO Golf Outing is set for Friday, August 2, 2019, at Valley of the Eagles in Elyria (1100 Gulf Road). Cost for the event is $100 and includes 18 holes with a cart, lunch, beer, a 50/50 raffle ticket, two basket raffle tickets, and entry for skins, long drive, and longest putt. Additional money can be paid at the course for mulligans, moving up on some of the par 5s, and closest-to-the-pin contests. Each golfer will also receive a sleeve of balls, tees, a divot repair tool, a ball marker, and a travel mug. We will also have beer and appetizers after the event for those that want to stick around.

You can register via the link below. When registering please indicate either the captain of your team or other members you'll be playing with so we can put everyone in the proper foursomes. You can also register as a single, and we will pair you up with others. Those not wishing to golf but want to support CYO can do so for $20 (that cost includes lunch and beer).

On the day of the event, registration at the course begins at noon, and we will have a shotgun start at 1 pm.

Anyone looking to volunteer can reach out to Frank Willett (cyo@stjudejaguars.org). Also, anyone seeking to contribute a basket/raffle item or sponsor a hole ($100 per hole, $75 if you have a banner in our gym) can also reach out to Frank.

All proceeds go to helping make St. Jude CYO sports the best experience for the kids and this our one big fundraiser for the year.

Thanks,

St. Jude CYO Sports Committee
