ABOUT OUR ANNUAL CHARITY GOLF EVENT
In 2015, Brothers John Fay, Steve Gonnella, Larry Noska and Fred Albi conceived the idea of promoting and organizing an annual charity golf tournament as a way to raise funds for community groups and our council. The first year, the tournament started out small. Since then, it has grown into a major fundraiser not only for our council but for several charity-based groups in our local area that rely upon our donations to carry out their mission(s).
Typically, there are approximately 100-120 golfers that participate. The tournament averages seventy business and individual sponsors. The tournament begins as a shotgun start. Various prices are offered to golfers throughout the course. After all golfers have completed the course, the Knights serve them with a delicious lunch followed by a fabulous raffle drawing featuring some awesome prizes that are donated by local businesses.
In 2019, the tournament generated over $22,000 in gross revenue. After expenses, a total of $15,000 was donated to local charitable organizations.
