Since 1989, Saints Peter and Paul School has hosted an annual Golf Outing. 39 foursomes comprised that first event which was held at the White Eagle Golf Course. The huge response was due, in large part, to the mission of the Outing, namely to provide tuition assistance for families struggling to give their children a Catholic education. Since that time, over $1.6 million has been raised for this worthy cause.
Given the pandemic we’re living through, there has been much discussion about whether SSPP would return to in-person teaching, let alone hold normal activities like a Golf Outing. The exciting news is that our school is actively preparing to welcome over 320 students on August 19 and is also prepared to continue offering features like before and after school care as well as fall sports like cross country and volleyball.
Given this optimistic approach to the 2020-21 term, a recent conference call took place amongst Golf Committee co-chair Pete Ledebuhr, Advancement Board President Craig Bennett, Advancement Board Vice-President Joe Scheffler, our Pastor, Fr. Brad, Advancement Director Frank Glowaty, and parish Finance Manager Tom Boler. Its purpose was to determine the feasibility of maintaining our September 10 date at Cress Creek and whether the group felt golfers would be comfortable enough to support this fundraiser.
