Norphans and NC Supporters,

As you know the golf outing & summer reunion help comprise the vast majority of our donations to the grant fund. We are always in need of golfers & sponsors to help us with our mission - keeping the cost of Catholic education reasonable for families in need. Please let us know if you can help us by playing , being or finding a sponsor ( maybe your work would be interested) , helping us run the event or other contributions.

Your kindness & generosity are appreciated by our board & those who benefit from our grants.
