Supports Police and Fire
Knights of Columbus Raises Money for Charities
The 18th annual St. Patrick's Day Golf Tournament for the South Bay Police and Fire Memorial Foundation brought serious players to the course as well as those who just wanted to support the foundation.
The annual tournament, which is held at the Los Verdes Country Club, helps raise money for the organization that provides financial aid to the families of police and fire personnel who have lost their lives or become disabled.
John Elway's Manhattan Beach Toyota is a regular sponsor of the tournament. This year participants from the dealership included Sales Manager Noel DeBelen, Used Car Manager Gavin Pierce and Jack Elway.
Also held on March 19 at Rancho Palos Verdes Country Club was the Knights of Columbus Swing for Charity Golf Tournament. Proceeds from the organization's event were to benefit the Doak Center for Palliative Care, Little Company of Mary Hospital and Providence Health and Services.
The Knights of Columbus Queen of Martyrs Council 4567 sold out its tournament.
The day-long Police and Fire Memorial Foundation tournament was followed by a banquet dinner, awards, raffle and auction at the country club. The entry fee is $195 per person, which includes special tee package gifts.
