Bishop’s Golf Classic

Golf for Good!

2014 Golf LogoA day on the links, with everything provided, and all for a good cause! Your participation in the Catholic Charities Bishop’s Golf Classic provides funding to make our mission possible. Through the generosity of our sponsors, including Mercy Medical Center, all money raised goes directly to programs and services to help those in need in our community.

The 2017 Bishop’s Catholic CharIMG 7563ities Golf Classic will be held on Monday, August 28 at beautiful Echo Valley Country Club in Norwalk, just south of Des Moines. Gather your business groups, parish members, families, and friends for a team, or sign up on your own and meet some of the other great people who want to care for and empower those in need in our community. Reserve your spot for this fast-paced, fun-spirited tournament that raises funds for Catholic Charities programs and services.

About the Tournament: The tournament begins with lunch at noon, followed by a 1:00 pm shotgun start. Parishes are encouraged to enter one or more teams in the “Church Challenge” to compete against other parish teams. The foursome with the lowest team score will take home the Catholic Charities Bishop’s Golf Classic prize!

No Room at the Inn

2016 No Room (51) A holiday reception to raise funds for homeless families.

Our favorite way to kick off the holidays is the annual No Room at the Inn fundraising reception. Festive music, delicious hors d’oeuvres and drinks, and a silent auction set for holiday entertaining and gifts. Thanks to our main event sponsor, Mercy Medical Center, all proceeds benefit Catholic Charities emergency family shelter.

To sponsor or register for the event, contact Fred Hollister at 515-237-5064.

St. Patrick’s Gala

A night to honor Catholic Charities champions at a great St. Patrick’s party!

IMG 8843We needed a great event to honor those to have gone above and beyond to help Catholic Charities, Diocese of Des Moines. So, in 2015, we put together our St. Patrick’s Gala as a celebration where fun and fundraising were the centerpiece of the evening. A wonderful dinner and honors ceremony, with a party in the pub with an Irish band before and after!
