Caritas depends on donations from the community in order to provide the full range of needed services being provided to people in need. Gifts of money, food and serviceable household items (such as clothing, furniture, electronics, knick-knacks, etc.) are extremely important to Caritas.
Due to the high percentages of heavy rainfall predicted for tomorrow, Friday, October 23, 2015, the tournament scheduled for tomorrow at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course is being postponed. The tournament is being rescheduled for Friday, November 13, 2015 with lunch (or maybe breakfast) and registration beginning at 10:30 am with a shotgun start beginning at 12 noon.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you on November 13.
