Swing for Mercy Golf Tournament
Save the Date: Monday, June 20, 2016 at the Wyoming Valley Country Club

A fundraising golf tournament began in 1990 and became an annual event to the present day. While the venue has changed over time, Swing for Mercy has been held in June at the Wyoming Valley Country Club for the last fifteen years. In 1996, the Golf Committee started the tradition of recognizing a Woman of the Year, an individual who exemplifies the Mercy spirit of compassion and service through her own commitment to the Sisters of Mercy.

The 2016 Swing for Mercy Golf Tournament will take place on Monday, June 20 at the Wyoming Valley Country Club. Carlie Wetzel will be honored as our Mercy Woman of the Year. To register for the tournament, call Jenny Blanchard at the Catherine McAuley Center at 570-342-1342, or click here to download the Swing for Mercy Registration Flyer and Non-Golfer Donation Form:
