19th Annual Catholic Charities Golf Tournament

Held at the Oakmont Country Club in Glendale on June 15, 2015 the 19th Annual Catholic Charities’ Golf Tournament was a big success, and benefitted programs to feed, house and assist the poor and homeless who come to the agency for assistance in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Ventura Counties.

Krauss, Vincent F. Martin, Jr., Michael D. O’Brien, Paul D. Tosetti, Esq., and Peter J. Vogelsang, M.D.
