Drive Against ALS

By Grand Knight Michael Dougherty Council #6812

Vol. 4, 2016-2017

On April 6th Counci #6812 in Lake Jackson held it’s 3rd annual “Drive Against ALS” golf tournament. The tournament has been held these last 3 years at the Wilderness Golf Course.This years turnout was higher that the past 2 years.We had a total of 79 golfers. Each year we hold a silent auction and serve lunch to all the golfers and volunteers. Lunch was prepared and served by our Knight of the year Sir Gene Kanski and his fellow Knights.Even though the hole in one car donated by Don Davis Auto Group was not won by any of the golfers, a great time was had by all of the golfers and many volunteers who helped make this a successful tournament. Our council will present a check to the ALS Houston Chaper for $13,500.00 at our monthly meeting in June. This check along with the two previous checks brings the total raised for the three tournaments for the “Drive Against ALS” to $31,000.00. We are very proud of our Knights and the Catholic Daughters that worked very hard to make this a huge success.

During last years Hurricane Harvery our Council #6812 helped with 16 houses belonging to the Knights and parishioners of St. Michael’s Church in Lake Jackson. We had many Knights come out to help us with tearing out all the sheet rock and insulation along with personal belongings, furniture andappliances when needed. The Catholic Daughters brought us breakfast and lunch each day. It was a great team effort.Our Knights also helped in other council areas where help was needed for fellow Knights. The process took approximately 6 weeks.Council #6812 also gave 12 gift cards valued at $350.00 to victims of hurricane Harvey.

Some of the activities that the Knights Council 6812 are involved with are:

  • Youth Free Throw
  • Wheel Chair Mission
