In conjunction with the Sudo Family, the Council is proud to host this fundraiser in memory of Joey Sudo who died of a rare cancer in April 2012. The event is the first official fundraiser for The Joey Sudo Memorial Fund, which was established by the Council and the Sudo family to honor Joey’s life and legacy of bravery under adversity and support individuals or families struggling with a serious, life-threatening, or terminal illness.

Business and individual sponsors are sought at several levels: Corporate Sponsor $1,500, Gold Sponsor $500, Beverages $400, Putting Contest $300, Lunch or Golf Tees $275, and holes at $100 each. Companies or individuals that sponsor holes will be recognized with their names on a sign at the hole.

“A St. Jude’s kid, fundraiser for children’s cancer, and local soccer player, Joey was loved by people on the Broadneck peninsula and beyond,” said Council Grand Knight Jeremy Shutt. “It is our honor to host this first fundraiser for a fund that will be used to support those facing a situation similar to what the Sudos did.”
