This Golf Classic has raised nearly one million dollars since it started in 1975. In its early years, it underwrote financial aid; since 2014 it has underwritten technology initiatives that keep CCHS at the top of its game as one of the city’s premier high schools, and give students the 21st-century skills they need. It has raised over $200,000 in the last three years alone to fund technology programs and infrastructure.
All players enjoy an exceptional day of golf including a full box lunch; scrumptious Mexican food supper; free beers and sodas; cigars; player prizes; prizes for top winning teams; contest prizes; door prizes for Mulligan buyers; packed goodie bags; chair massage.

 The 2024 tournament will underwrite game-changing technology initiatives—which not only benefit all students, faculty, and staff but attract new students:
  • Central Catholic is a leader in providing Chromebooks (laptops) for every student who needs one. As SATs go all-digital next year, CCHS providing Chromebooks will allow students to take the SATs on campus vs. taking tests in an unfamiliar setting.
  • Enhance the school’s digital security efforts with additional best-in-class cameras across campus, and key-card access doors to keep students and teachers safe.
  • Tuition assistance is because more and more families are facing economic challenges while trying to ensure their son has the best Catholic education in the city.
