2020

We are thrilled to announce that the 20th Annual White Rose Golf Classic raised $41,000!  This is incredible, as it is an increase over last year’s result, and it far exceeds our expectations for an event held in the middle of a pandemic.

All of the funds raised are provided to the White Rose Women’s Center.  The funds make a critical contribution to the operation of the Center’s clinics and support their mission of saving the lives of unborn babies.  To learn more about the center, visit www.stjosephshelpers.org.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this result possible.  We had incredible participation from players and overwhelming generosity from our many, many sponsors.

White Rose Golf Classic sets fund-raising record; proceeds used to purchase ultrasound machines for White Rose Women’s Center

  • Pro-life event spearheaded by organizations from St. Paul the Apostle Community
  • Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative provides matching donation

RICHARDSON, Texas [Nov. 29, 2017] — The 2017 White Rose Golf Classic raised more than $41,000 — a record for this annual event now in its 16th year. The charity golf tournament, hosted by organizations from St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, benefits the pro-life mission of the White Rose Women’s Center operated by the non-profit St. Joseph’s Helpers.

Proceeds from the tournament and other fund-raising efforts will be combined with a generous matching donation from the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative, providing a total of $75,000 to sponsor the purchase of two ultrasound machines for the White Rose Women’s Center. White Rose offers confidential and free counseling about pregnancy, adoption and abortion at three locations in Dallas. The new ultrasound units, featuring the latest technology in 2D, 3D and 4D imaging and picture quality, ae now in use as part of the free health services available at White Rose clinics.

Mary Beth Felty, executive director at the White Rose, remarked, “the pictures we can see today with the Samsung H60, of babies’ bodies moving at barely 8 weeks, are extremely technologically advanced from the previous ultrasound pictures. We are extremely grateful to the St. Paul Men’s Club Annual White Rose Golf Classic and the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative for raising the funds needed for two new, Samsung H60 sonogram machines, which provide the technological linchpin that assists us in demonstrating the undeniable humanity of the unborn baby.”

Tournament Chairman Rudy Perez said: “We are grateful for the generous sponsors, golfers, volunteers and all those who helped to make this year’s White Rose Classic a huge success. The St. Paul Men’s Club and everyone behind this event are inspired by the work of the White Rose Centers, and we are pleased that the funds raised this year will help them continue to provide ultrasound services, which is one of the most effective means for helping mothers choose life for their babies.”

More than 100 golfers and more than 60 sponsors participated in the mixed four-person scramble event at Firewheel Golf Course on Oct. 20. This year’s fund-raising total far exceeded the previous record of $32,000 set in 2016.

 

About the White Rose Classic

Each year, this pro-life tournament provides significant funding for the White Rose Women’s Center in Dallas, which provides counseling and support to women with unplanned pregnancies so they can choose life for their babies.  The tournament was started in 2001 by the St. Paul Men’s Club and has expanded to include Knights of Columbus Council 12021 and several other organizations at St. Paul’s.  It was branded as the White Rose Golf Classic in 2012, and over the past 16 years the event has raised more than $210,000 for the White Rose Women’s Center.

About the Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Initiative

The Knights of Columbus, the world’s largest Catholic men’s service organization, established its Ultrasound Initiative to equip medically certified pro-life pregnancy care centers with modern technology that will enable expectant mothers to see and hear their babies in utero. When a state or local council raises half of the cost of the ultrasound machine, the Supreme Council matches it so that 100 percent of the cost is covered.
