Twenty-eight golf teams, including seven priests and three deacons participated in the 28th annual Catholic Charities of Arkansas Golf Tournament Monday, Oct. 2, at the Granada Golf Course in Hot Springs Village.
More than 45 organizations and individuals sponsored the fundraising event, which generated more than $52,000 for the ministries of Catholic Charities of Arkansas, which provides family assistance, a free medical clinic, immigration services, parish social ministry, prison ministry, refugee resettlement and assistance for victims of domestic violence.
Underwriters for the event the Elser Family in memory of A.F. (Bill) and Ebby Elser and Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Hot Springs Village. The parish with the most teams was Sacred Heart Church. Between underwriting eight teams and two more through parishioner-sponsored teams, Sacred Heart had a total of 10 teams participate in the tournament.
The following teams won the first, second and third flights at the tournament:
This event was established to honor the late Bishop Andrew J. McDonald, who served as shepherd for the Diocese of Little Rock from 1972 to 2000. It was during his tenure that Catholic Charities of Arkansas was established. The McDonald Center, which is home to the offices of Catholic Charities, is also named in his honor.
