Newman Golf Classic

July 6th marked what would be the 28th Annual Newman Golf Classic. Each year we focus on fun, fellowship and hospitality coupled with Blackhawk’s unparalleled atmosphere and service to provide an amazing golf experience to all.

This year is different and challenging in so many ways but we are still trying to carry out the main goal of our event – to raise much needed funds in support of the St. Joseph Seminary & Newman Theological College. After having to cancel the actual golf tournament, a long time Foundation benefactor came forward challenging the Newman Golf Classic “family” with a $50,000 matching gift for 2020!

The Newman Golf Classic has always been the Foundation’s biggest fundraising event to support the work of Newman Theological College and St. Joseph Seminary. Despite the pandemic, our expenses continue and not hosting the tournament will greatly impact our bottom line. Our generous Benefactor whole-heartily believes and trusts in the generosity of the Catholic community and is calling us all to action.

By supporting the Newman Golf Classic, you help people like Alene Mutala. She attended Newman Theological College and gained the confidence and skills she needed to share her faith with so many young people in our Catholic Schools. After years of teaching, Alene is now an Edmonton Catholic School trustee. She says “everyone [working in the Catholic School system] needs to share their faith story. And if they don’t have a faith story, they need to learn more about their faith. And the only place they can do that is through classes at Newman.”

The response has been outstanding and we are getting close. We kindly ask, if you are able, to please consider donating to the Newman Golf Classic. Every donation brings us closer to reaching our objective. Remember that your donation will be doubled by the matching gift!

We thank each and every one of you for your most generous support over past years and during these extraordinary times! Later this summer we will share the final fundraising results for the Newman Golf Classic 2020!

Stay safe and healthy!

Thank you for supporting theological education!

Thank You to our golfers, sponsors, donors and volunteers who contributed to the success of the 2019 Newman Golf Classic. Thanks to your support we raised an amazing $165,000!

Each year the tournament’s proceeds go to St. Joseph Seminary and Newman Theological College to enable them to continue their mission to educate, train and form priests and lay leaders such as parish pastoral assistants, chaplains and Catholic teachers. Unlike other post-secondary institutions, they receive no government funding. They rely on the Foundation and the incredible generosity of the many sponsors, donors, golfers and volunteers who support us.
