The 2013 Swing for Mercy Golf Tournament sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy will be held on Monday, June 17 at the Wyoming Valley Country Club in Wilkes-Barre.
All funds raised will directly benefit an important ministry of the Sisters of Mercy: the Catherine McAuley Center. Since 1984, the Catherine McAuley Center has responded to the needs of homeless women and children in our region by providing housing and support services. These individuals and families have nowhere to turn and few options remain. The Catherine McAuley Center offers places of comfort, safety, and care, helping to lead clients to independence and self-sufficiency.
Each year, the tournament recognizes a woman who exemplifies the Mercy spirit of compassion and service through her own commitment to the mission of the Sisters of Mercy.
The Swing for Mercy Golf Committee takes great pride in announcing Tina J. MacDowell as the 2013 Mercy Woman of the Year.
MacDowell moved to the Wyoming Valley in 1998 when her husband Michael MacDowell became Misericordia University’s 12th president. Her commitment to Mercy is reflected in her legacy of service as an active community volunteer, serving on the boards of many area organizations.
There are multiple opportunities to honor Tina MacDowell and to support the work of the Catherine McAuley Center as a sponsor, golfer, or donor. Event sponsorship is a valuable way to bring visibility to your organization.
