Mission San Luis Rey Parish & Semper Fi Fund

Dear Fellow BKs, Active Duty, Veterans, Golfers, Community Members & Volunteers;

As a result of many generous sponsors and players over the years we have been able to expand and support our Charitable Ministries both here at Mission San Luis Rey parish, but also all of San Diego County.

Whether your support is a Major Sponsorship, hole sponsor, beverage cart sponsor, player, donation or in-kind contribution, you can rest assured that we are most appreciative and we will use the proceeds to help those in need.

As we look forward to August 25, 2023 we are again asking for your critical support to continue our Ministries knowing that they make a difference in many, many lives here in our community. In 2023 we have chosen to benefactor the needs of the Mission San Luis Rey Parish which supports needy families and youth activities & the Semper Fi Fund ( Semper Fi Fund/America’s Fund Camp Pendleton Unit. Provides Financial Support to Combat Wounded, ill & Injured Members of Armed Services &Their Families). We have also chosen to host our event at the Marine Memorial Golf Course (MMGC) , which supports our Sailors and Marines onboard Camp Pendleton with more than 80 comprehensive programs supported by Non-Appropriated Funds, profits generated from retail, services, and recreational activities, such as golf events at Marine Memorial Golf Course.

This year we are naming our tournament after one of our very dedicated members, 26 year retired Marine MSgt, who passed away in May 2022. He was a cornerstone of our parish and community and exemplified Charity, Unity and Fraternity. Therefore, this tournament will be named the, “MSgt Tuputala (Tala) Paulo 1st Annual Memorial Charity Golf Tournament”. You can learn more about MSgt and Brother Knight: Tala Paulo here.

In advance, I want to say thank you for your consideration and donating your time and resources in supporting our Knights of Columbus Council and these charities.
