PARISH AND COMMUNITY EVENTS
BOB BUCCI MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT OF HOPE: Join the Bucci Family for the Second Annual Bob Bucci Memorial Tournament of Hope. All proceeds raised will go directly to the Northern California Family Center (www.ncfc.us). Last year, with over 40 participants in the inaugural event, we raised over $6,500 for the NCFC, which has been placing foster children, training foster parents and providing intensive clinical, shelter and referral services for runaway, homeless, neglected and abused youth in Contra Costa County since 1978. The golf tournament is a scramble format and will be held on Friday June 15th, 2018 at Franklin Canyon Golf Course. Details for registering and/or to make a donation can be found on the event website: https://www.planmygolfevent.com/31555-BBMT
PLEASANT HILL JULY 4TH FIRECRACKER RUN SCHOOL FUNDRAISER: As some of you may know, Christ the King School has participated in this great fundraiser each 4th of July in Downtown Pleasant Hill. We have been among the top three schools that bring participants to the race, and that has typically been simply from word-of-mouth. Last year CTK School received a check for $1,896. It's time to register for the Pleasant Hill July 4th Firecracker 5K Run and Walk school fundraiser. Remember, all net proceeds from your registration directly benefit Pleasant Hill schools, CTK School included. This event is celebrating its 14th year, has raised over $120,000 to benefit Pleasant Hill schools, and with your support it continues to grow each year! So, gather up the family, dress in your best patriotic gear, and join the fun while supporting our local schools. Early bird and family/group pricing available.
