Golf for a Cause!

Best Blogger Tips
This month we worked on our golf game, all while having some fun with Catholic Charities supporters! 

First up was the In the Name of the Mother Golf Outing on September 12 at Blue Mash Golf Course. The day benefits the In the Name of the Mother Fund, started and run by Kevin McConville (who sits on Catholic Charities Board of Directors) in memory of his wife Megan who passed away from cancer 10 years ago. The fund supports low-income mothers who are battling cancer and trying to support their family. We took full advantage of the beautiful fall weather to enjoy some golf, fellowship and food and raised over $50,000. 

Take a look at few of the moments we captured: 

Second on our list was the Catholic Charities Golf Classic on September 15 at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm. The tournament raised nearly $170,000 for our McCarrick Family Center in Silver Spring which provides emergency assistance, parenting classes, financial education classes and emergency food and clothing to families in need.

Below are some photos we snapped:
