Bishop Shanahan High School, Downingtown, hosted its sixth annual Endowment Golf Outing at the pristine French Creek Golf Club in Elverson on a sunny, 75 degree day Sept. 11.
Almost 80 golfers came out to support the Bishop Shanahan Endowment Fund that helps students who desire a Catholic education with the tuition assistance they need to attend the only archdiocesan high school in Chester County. Over its six years, the outing has helped grow the endowment fund by almost $450,000.
Golfers began the day with a barbeque lunch before their shotgun start at 12 noon. They were joined on the golf course by eight members of the Bishop Shanahan golf team who participated in a “Beat the Student” golf contest while sharing with the golfers the benefits of their Catholic education at Shanahan.
After enjoying 18 holes of golf, they returned for dinner on the terrace and a silent auction that included box seat tickets to Flyers, Phillies and 76ers games, autographed memorabilia, foursomes at surrounding golf clubs and a full one-year membership to French Creek Golf Club, among other items.
Bishop Shanahan hosts many events during the year to benefit the endowment. For more information on the annual golf outing or the Endowment Fund, please call 610-343-6255.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
