12th Annual Catholic Center Golf Tournament

August 17, 2013

UGA Golf Course

Dear Friend:

On Saturday (8/17/2013), the Catholic Center at UGA will hold its 12th Annual Catholic Center Golf Tournament at the University of Georgia Golf Course.  Registration will begin at 7:30 am with an 8:30 am shotgun start.  In addition to playing golf on a great course, you will have the opportunity to win one of several outstanding prizes!  This year, we will have a hole-in-one contest, giving a lucky golfer the opportunity to win $250,000! You will also have the chance to win a 2014 Kia Sorento, a Taylor-Made driver and woods, a Getaway at a Private Boot Ranch in Fredericksburg, Texas or a vacation for four at Silver Legacy Resort Casino in Reno, Nevada.

In honor of Vince and Barbara Dooley, a portion of the tournament’s proceeds will provide scholarships to allow underprivileged children from the Athens area to attend UGA summer athletic camps.  Proceeds from the golf tournament also fund the Catholic Center outreach program known as Franciscan Helping Hands, which provides financial support to a number of non-profit organizations in the Athenian community.  Some of the tournament’s beneficiaries include Interfaith Hospitality, The Athens Nurses’ Clinic, The Stable Foundation, Our Daily Bread, Bigger Vision Homeless Shelter and after-school tutoring programs.

Thanks to Ernie Battenelli, owner of Classic City Catering, you will enjoy a continental breakfast prior to play as well as an after-play meal.  Each player registered by August 1st will receive a golf shirt so it is important that you meet the registration deadline of August 1, 2013.  Please complete all information on the Registration form so that we order your correct shirt size. 

I hope to see you and your friends on August 17th!


Fr. Thomas F. Vigliotta, ofm
