FOKN Golf Update


Under two months until our September 11 golf tournament

(These are the tip of the iceberg—we will also have silent auction items, raffle items, and gift cards for sale.   Look for a draft program here just before the event.)

The Philadelphia Eagles are back with a fabulous gift (EAGLES have been stalwarts for Kevin!)—–their gifts add so much fun, and raise so much money to help Kevin.

There is so much more.

Coming to the tournament?   Read below, and start plotting your strategy.

Not coming, and know someone who is?  Consider asking someone to represent you to bid on an item.

Not coming, and don’t know anyone who is?  Reach out to us if there is an item here of interest—-last year, a wonderful guy playing the top 100 courses in the country reached out.   He had a spectacular day of golf, and made a gift to the trust.



Four tickets to a taping of the show in Washington, DC.

Mutually convenient date—must be used by February 2018.

Golf with the Padre and the Pro!

Local resident, and Saint John Fisher pastor, Father Robert Mc Dermott and PGA pro Ed Dougherty, have joined to offer the opportunity for two golfers to play with them at the TPC Jasna Polana Golf Course a PGA Tour course in Princeton New Jersey, one of the top private clubs in the state. The winning bidder will receive a day of golf and lunch, all compliments of Ed. The format will be Ed and Father Mc Dermott for six holes, and then Ed will golf with each of the other golfers for six holes each as will Father McDermott. While Ed will provide tips as play progresses, the day is not a golf lesson for the winning bidder.

A mutually agreed upon time will be arranged. This is a great opportunity for a serious golfer to golf at a prestigious course.

Take a look at the course at and see what a great course you’ll be playing.
