It Takes a Parish

Clubhouse – Registration Options
All Golfers, Tennis players, Pickleball players, and Evening Ticket buyers are encouraged to complete all transactions online, in advance of the event day. The Golf, Tennis, and Pickleball packages are being offered on an all-inclusive basis, so there is no need to make additional purchases upon arrival at the Country Club of Roswell. Volunteers will be available at a Registration Desk to answer any questions.
Donations – The Matching Fund
The Men of Saint Brigid, Knights of Columbus, and Habitat for Humanity are collaborating to create a special opportunity to thank our dedicated volunteers. Habitat will designate the next home built by Saint Brigid volunteers a “Legacy Build.” It’s a way to recognize Saint Brigid volunteers and specifically honor Bob Lehrer for his years of dedicated service. Without the tireless efforts of these volunteers, 14 families would not have a place of their own to call home. The Men of Saint Brigid are committing $5,000 in matching funds, which means the first $5,000 donated will automatically be doubled. Please go to the Important Docs box on this web page, click on Matching Fund and make a donation. Help us make 2022 the “best build” yet! Thank you.
