In This Issue:
The homeless man sleeping on a mat in the St. James Parish hall each winter probably never plays golf. The 82-year-old widow who relies on the Cathedral vans for transportation to and from Mass each Sunday, probably couldn’t tell you the difference between a nine iron and a wedge. And the third grader who receives Cathedral scholarship funds in order to attend Catholic elementary school really doesn’t appreciate the value of a good tee-time. But to all of these people and hundreds more just like them, the Annual Archbishop Raymond G. Hunthausen Charity Golf Tournament plays a very important role in their lives.

The 7th Annual

Perhaps it seems a bit ironic that a game played with a stick and a little white ball, and considered by some as a pastime for the affluent, has had such a significant impact upon the lives of those at the very opposite end of the economic spectrum. But that is exactly what the Hunthausen Charity Golf Tournament has done for the past seven years. Raising over a quarter million dollars, the Hunthausen Tournament gathers funds through corporate sponsorships, registration fees, and the popular Armchair Athletes’ Auction, to support those outreach programs which remain near and dear to Archbishop Hunthausen and St. James Cathedral parishioners.

More than ever, this year’s Hunthausen Tournament puts the fun back into fundraising. In particular, as the tournament moves to the celebrated Inglewood Golf and Country Club, it also adds a new dimension of fun for the non-golfer! The Rendezvous at Inglewood is an opportunity for spouses and partners to join their golfing mates at the end of the day for a bit of pampering and partying of their own. This new feature offers complimentary champagne, a mini-spa treatment to help you relax after a long day at the office or with the children, and a gourmet dinner in the Inglewood ballroom over looking the lush greens and graceful water fountain of the golf course. All proceeds from The Rendezvous at Inglewood will provide much-needed support for the Cathedral’s outreach programs.

The Hunthausen Tournament is open to all parishioners and friends of the Cathedral. For more information on becoming a sponsor or player or to attend The Rendezvous at Inglewood, call the Cathedral Development Office, 206-382-4284.

Mary Ann Millican is Director of Development at St. James Cathedral.
