This year's event will be held the first weekend in August, with the charity auction on Aug. 5 and the golf tournament on Aug. 6 at Lincoln Homestead State Park.
The 21st Annual St. Catharine College Celebrity Golf Classic will take place the weekend of Aug. 5-6. The event is not only a great chance to hit the golf course and have fun, but it is also a way to provide quality higher education to SCC students.
The festivities start the evening of Friday, August 5, with a reception at 6 p.m. in the Spalding Student and Community Center on the SCC Campus. The live auction will begin at 7:30 p.m. with a vast array of items up for bid.
Among the big ticket items offered this year are Notre Dame tickets, tickets to the 2012 Indianapolis 500, a week-long stay in a condo in Hilton Head, South Carolina, a recliner, Budweiser neon sign (perfect for a Man Cave) and signed sports memorabilia like a UK quilt signed by coaches John Calipari and Joker Phillips.
“The auction is always fun. We have a vast array of items each year and I expect this year to be even better,” said Angela Hoffman , Director of Alumni & Events. “We have items to offer from friends and businesses in Springfield, Lebanon, Bardstown and beyond. They are very good to us every year. One of the favorite items at auction is autographed sports memorabilia. We already have a set of signed baseballs from the 1970’s era Cincinnati Reds.”
Also up on the auction block are regional celebrities to round out your golf team. Several favorites are returning again this year as well as a few new faces.
The event continues on Saturday, Aug. 6, as the golfers take to the course at Lincoln Homestead State Park. Registration begins at 8 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Lunch will be served at the turn and an awards reception takes place at the end of the tournament.
