District 35 Knights of Columbus In Tampa Hosting Charity Golf Tournament
The Knights of Columbus in Tampa are hosting a Golf Tournament Saturday, October 9th at Summerfield Crossings Golf Club. The event will benefit Tim Manning, a thirty year menber of the K of C.

Mr. Manning is a single widowed father of three. Due to the relocation of the Smithfield Foods Inc., Tim is both unemployed and without health insurance. Earlier this year, Tim developed a serious foot infection, further complicated by diabetics and kidney failure. He has endured several surgeries, lost part of his right foot, and has dialysis every other day.
Our goal is to pay a good portion of his $250,000 medicals bills with proceeds from this tournament.
Tim Manning joined the Knights of Columbus nearly thirty years ago. Over the years, he has taken leading roles in his Council as well as the District level, and has chaired a number of worthy local events and fundraisers. He was elected to many Council offices before becoming Grand Knight. Under Tim’s leadership, his Council achieved the Star Council Award. As District Deputy, he achieved a Star District Award and first place in the state for the highest membership recruitment. Currently, Tim is a Regional State Public Relations Coordinator.
You can help Tim by 1) donating a tournament prize, 2) playing in the charity golf event, or 3) sending a donation.
