One of the popular events of recent outings has been Beat the Nun in 2018 and Beat the Priest last year with Fr. Chris. As Fr. Lankford is now pastor of St. John the Baptist Parish (Winfield), we are pleased to announce that Sr. Mary Ann Dosen has agreed to return and challenge our participants.
“Sister was unbelievable,” recalled committee co-chair Scott Enke. “We told her to hit from the women’s tee but she insisted in hitting from the same tee box as everyone else,” he added, "and was very impressive.”
Another change impacts the traditional live auction following dinner. Instead, golfers can bid on an assortment of interesting items throughout their round of golf.
While we don’t have any sports tickets to offer, we are trying to procure rounds of golf at places like Rich Harvest, Olympia Fields, and Hinsdale.
The committee is also planning on raffling off a basket of dinner certificates, adult beverages, lottery tickets, and school spirit wear.
The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, September 3, as we need to provide Cress Creek with a hard count of participants so they can make sure they have a proper number of carts, beverages, and food for everyone.
