We had a beautiful day for the “Al Bukaty” golf outing. There were forty-two golfers with a mixture of priests, seminarians, deacons, deacon candidates, and Serrans playing. Thanks to the Bukaty Insurance Co. and the K. C., KS. Serra Club we gave out $750 in prize money. Fr. Mark Mertes won the top prize of $100. All the priests who participated in golf took home at least $75 each.
We had 105 sign up for dinner including both of our Archbishops. Rick and Ryan Wiseman and the Porter Funeral Home staff again provided a magnificent “George Gorman” steak dinner. The Porter Funeral Home also donated three Southwest Airline vouchers to be given to a priest, deacon, and seminarian attending the dinner. Fr. Dan Gardner was one of the lucky winners.
There were so many of our Serrans volunteered to help with the golf and dinner. Their only objective was to make it a great day for our guests. Jim Burns, Ken Corsini helped at the golf course. Gene Schreiner, helped with the name tags and registration. Will Miller and the bar staff did a great job providing liquid refreshments for our guests.
The evening concluded with a blessing from Archbishop Joseph Naumann and Archbishop Emeritus James Keleher.
Mark your calendars for May 28th, 2020 for next years event.
It was a great day!!!
