On Friday, August 5, Hillcrest Country Club in Lincoln will host the 26th Annual Catholic Social Services Memorial Golf Classic & Auction, a major fundraiser for the programs of Catholic Social Services of Southern Nebraska (CSS, csshope.org/golf2022). This year’s event is in memory of Sandie Gonnerman. Sandie was a dedicated and much-loved accountant for CSS for over a quarter-century.
Last year, 256 golfers participated in the tournament. The silent auction portion of the event took place online, allowing folks from anywhere to bid on items. Through the generosity of golfers, bidders, and sponsors, last year’s event raised a net amount of over $113,000 for the programs and services of CSS.

Their services cover 24,000 square miles offering charitable assistance through the food market and meal services, emergency services, refugee resettlement and immigration help, Gift & Thrift stores, family and individual counseling services, St. Gianna Women’s Homes, and emergency housing.
