Knights of Columbus Golf Tournament Recap
 
On Wednesday, Sept. 23, the Knights of Columbus Council 10668 hosted the Fifteenth Annual Robert B. Killenberger Memorial Charity Golf Tournament at the Palmetto Hall golf course. The event proved to be the most successful tournament ever run by the Knights of Columbus. With over 90 golfers and 50 tee sponsors participating, a record amount of revenue was realized.
 
Below are three of the winning team members. From left to right: Jack Toti, Richard Buskey and Bart Bubnell. Tournament chairman Ron Smetek is in the foreground.


With perfect weather and excellent course conditions, a very enjoyable day was experienced by all of the players so much so that another tournament is being discussed for the Spring.
 Vivat Jesus,
Bill Taylor
Grand Knight – Council 10668




K of C Supports the SC Suitcase Project

Inspired by the charity project offered by parishioner, Jack Gigante, a high school sophomore at John Paul II, our Knights have joined their efforts to collect unused suitcases and tote bags for foster children throughout the state.  Jack's donations were accepted in April and a new collection date for the K of C is being planned for June.  Watch here for more details.  Visit the SC Suitcase Project webpage for more information.
