St. Demetrios 21st Annual Golf Tournament

The 21st Annual St. Demetrios Golf Tournament was held on Monday, September 21st at Sunset Hills Country Club, Thousand Oaks. A good time was had by all the golfers and those who came out for a fabulous Dinner, Auction and Raffle.

Once again, the event was a huge success! Generating $60,056 in net revenue for the Building Fund, this year’s event was the most profitable ever, up over 11% vs. last year’s record. The support of the local community as well as key sponsors in various Greek parishes throughout the region was instrumental to our success.

For all that joined us for the event, thank you for your support!

A very special THANK YOU to our Tournament Workers!

Your efforts and hard work helped make this a great event!

Sincerely,
