The Evansville Knights of Columbus have had a great year with their various fundraising projects and as a result they have been able to help out a lot of people.
On Tuesday, Dec. 9, Mark McConachie, on behalf of the Evansville Knights of Columbus, presented a check for $10,300 to the Knights of Columbus Developmental Center at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis.
This large donation is thanks to the community’s support of the Knight’s annual charity golf tournament, Sparta Equipment Company’s hole in one contest at the golf tournament, the Fort Kaskaskia Fourth Degree’s annual Mother’s Day dinner and the Knight’s Memorial Day Rally on the River event.
Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, and our Council will be hosting the 2nd Annual Jeep Rally on Saturday, May 23, 2015. The event will be held in downtown Evansville and is Expected to draw a large number of jeep owners to join in the rally. All vehicle types are welcome cars, trucks, motorcycles, or buses.
All proceeds will benefit Knights of Columbus Developmental Center, located on the Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital Campus. The center was funded fully by the Missouri Knights of Columbus with a majority of the funds coming from the Annual Tootsie Roll Drive. Families and young patients now have a building with easy access and a much higher degree of privacy.
