The St. Margaret Mary Golf Tournament, celebrating the Parish's 50th Anniversary and co-sponsored by the St. Margaret Mary Fr. Kyran Kennedy Council 9553 Knights of Columbus, was held on May 29, 2016 at Southbrook Golf & Country Club in Binbrook.
All enjoyed a fabulous time. Turnout was great with 76 golfers and 23 volunteers and dinner guests. It was hot but no rain or lightning, and everyone involved had lots of fun. We greatly appreciated the generosity of the businesses, various Knights’ Councils, individuals and parishioners who were hole and event sponsors, and prize donors.
The golfers participated in several contests. And the winners are . . .

The Golf Tourney Committee did an excellent job in planning this well-organized fundraising event. Many thanks to Joe M. Pracsovics and Jim Hannam (co-chairs), Ersilia DiNardo, Ken de Souza, Chris Nutley, Fabian Almeyda and Kathy Rodeman. Their many hours of hard work and effort paid off - an outstanding amount of $5000.00 was raised for other anniversary events.
We are also indebted to our Knights of Columbus, to the many enthusiastic volunteers plus Ryan Berkes, Manager at Southbrook and the golf club staff, who all contributed to the smooth running and success of the tournament, to the guests who joined us for dinner, and of course to all the players!
