Help Drive Out Hunger in Our Community

During the summer months the number of individuals who use our food pantries increases by 27%. During the same timeframe, the amount of food and monetary donations we receive decreases nearly 50%. We refer to this as the Summer Food Drought.

Join us in overcoming this Summer Food Drought, while enjoying a great game of golf, a raffle, lunch, wine tasting, and more!

A Lifelong Legacy

Betty Zarda

The Ben & Betty Zarda Family Golf Classic has truly been a labor of love, raising more than $3 million for Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas since its start in 1981. In August 2019, Betty passed away. Her giving and generous spirit lives on through her family and this event, which raises funds to help feed families in need.
