The Third Annual Bishop’s Charitable Golf Tournament, held June 19 at Territory Golf Club in St. Cloud, raised a total of $20,000 — up $from 15,500 in 2016. All proceeds from the tournament go to the Catholic Seminarian Education Fund to help with tuition and costs for the diocese’s 18 seminarians.
Increasing the total were monies from a silent auction which was also held online, Golf Balls From Heaven and wristband sales for separate games on the golf course. The Catholic Foundation of the St. Cloud Diocese organized the event.
This year 36 teams participated, the maximum allowed on the course. Last year 27 teams competed and the tournament benefited youth activities.
