BedeFest Raises More Than $100K for School

The 2019 BedeFest “Caddyshack” event raised more than $100,000 for St. Bede the Venerable Catholic School in La Cañada Flintridge, thanks to the generous donations of local businesses and community members, and the participation of school families. Families came out in large numbers to La Cañada Flintridge Country Club, dressed to a tee for the fundraiser’s “Show Us How You Caddyshack” theme. The night of games, bidding and fun raised funds critical to enabling St. Bede to continue offering a quality Catholic education to all families regardless of income level. Hole-in-One donors were Lauren and Kevin Bender, Michelle and Mac Chandler, Laura and Mark Scarsi, Narine and Chuck Stygar, and Jennifer and Nathan Zinn.
