Monsignor Reynolds Charity Challenge – October 5, 2020
WELCOME! The 21st Annual Monsignor Reynolds Charity Challenge (MRCC) is rescheduled for Monday, October 5, 2020 at the Country Club of Roswell. We made many adjustments to the event to create social distancing and provide a safe environment for you to enjoy the day. Please be sure to read everything below.
We feel so blessed to be able to host this event in 2020. The money raised will go to the ministries and charities we support. Their work never takes a break and the funds raised are always put to great use by the loyal and caring volunteers.
