Aston, PA—The Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia 21st Annual Golf Tournament is scheduled for Tuesday, September 15, 2015, at the Radley Run Country Club in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the sisters’ ministries and lend support for their retired sisters.
“Twenty-one years—a lot of time is packed into those two words. What it means for us is the significant contributions made by our sponsors, auction donors, golfers, and dinner guests. It means that those who have been served by our ministries have reaped benefits as a result of our many golf tournaments,” said Sr. Mary Vandergeest, executive director of the Sisters of St. Francis Foundation. “I hear donors say things like ‘giving back,’ ‘helping others,’ and ‘helping the sisters with their ministries.’ We are so grateful to everyone who supports those we serve through our golf tournaments. And we look forward to seeing these wonderful and generous people again this year.”
Among the sponsoring organizations are Ammon/Williams Allstate Agency, Boyd Watterson Asset Management, Kevin Lyons Funeral Service, Porter & Curtis, LLC, River Road Asset Management, Sodexo, St. Mary Medical Center, and Williamson Hospitality Services.
The cost to golf is $325 per person or $1,200 for a foursome and includes greens fees, cart, two contests, lunch, cocktails, and dinner. Live, silent, and ticket auctions will take place at the dinner. Items up for auction include a Bermuda vacation with golf for two, Eagles and Phillies tickets, foursomes at several prestigious golf courses, golf lessons, and much, much more. Team and door prizes will be awarded.
Today approximately 465 Sisters of St. Francis serve in 19 states and in Haiti, Ireland, and Africa. Their ministries include education at all levels; healthcare; pastoral care; service to elderly persons, immigrants, and refugees; care of those who are homeless, poor, or living with HIV/AIDS; and prayer and spiritual ministries.
