TREASURE COAST -- For the 12th consecutive year, Holy Cross Parish has held its annual golf tournament for the benefit of a local 501(c)3.
This year Treasure Coast Community Health benefitted from the record turnout and the $22,210 raised under the stewardship of Tom LaRocca, the event chairman. The monies will be contributed to the Women's Healthcare Safety Net Fund and will pay for screening mammograms and PAP smears for hundreds of women without financial resources.
Recent gifts from others have enabled TCCH to test more than 103 women, of which five were diagnosed with breast cancer.
Mr. LaRocca and a team of eight dedicated volunteers spent hundreds of hours seeking sponsorships and participants for the event. Debbie True, the Holy Cross Administrator, works tirelessly to make this annual event a success.
The parishioners and Reverend Father Murphy have been extraordinarily helpful and supportive of TCCH in the past by donating funds for the purchase of two fetal heart monitors.
The supporters of this annual event have enabled many 501(c)3s to continue their missions in the Community, including Harvest Food and Outreach last year.
