Third Annual St. John the Baptist Golf Classic Raises $15,000 for Catholic Education


The third annual St. John the Baptist Golf Classic brought together 92 golfers, more than 50 sponsors and many volunteers to raise money for Catholic education in the Plattsmouth community.

The golf classic, held on Saturday, August 7, 2021, at Bay Hills Golf Course, was a winner in every way — breaking records in funds raised and attendance.  According to Knights of Columbus event organizer Mike Vaughn, the golf classic was a tremendous success, raising more than $15,000 to support St. John the Baptist School.

After cancelling last year’s tournament due to the pandemic, not even the humidity or stormy weather could stop players from making it a successful and memorable day. Players enjoyed on-course pin prizes, a Hole-in-One Contest, raffle drawings and swag bags.

Following the tournament, 173 golfers and friends enjoyed a banquet at St. John’s school which included a steak dinner catered by Church of the Holy Spirit. Mayor Paul Lambert was the emcee at the banquet. Also in attendance was Congressman Jeff Fortenberry.
