Notre Dame High School Foundation will be hosting their 24th Annual Golf, Tennis and Bocce Tournament on June 13th at Terry Hills Golf Course in Batavia.

This year, the annual fundraising event has been moved to a Sunday.

Tournament Chair Jim Sutherland said “the committee felt holding the tournament on a weekend would allow more friends and alumni of Notre Dame High School to participate.”

Registration includes 18 holes of golf with golf cart, tennis or bocce, all beer and nonalcoholic beverages during play, lunch and steak dinner with a cash bar, and much more!

Most importantly, all proceeds from the tournament support Notre Dame Jr/Sr High School student scholarship programs, making excellence in education possible for deserving students in our communities. The tournament is one of our major fundraisers, along with an opportunity to spend the day having fun with friends and alumni.

Businesses and individuals looking to take advantage of this event's advertising opportunities and lock in sponsorship levels are encouraged to act early and contact Jim Sutherland at:  [email protected]. Please visit Notre Dame’s website for more information and to register for our fun-filled tournament.

By noon today, 50 blood donors had participated in the 12th annual Matthew Kota Memorial Blood Drive at Notre Dame High School in Batavia.

The event runs until 2 p.m. and includes a bake sale and donation opportunity for the Matthew Kota Scholarship Fund for students at Notre Dame High School and Byron-Bergen Jr./Sr. High School.

Jason and Nancy Kota along with their children Sean, Sara and Tyler are the hosts. The family lost their son and brother Matthew in 2008 at the age of 17 due to complications from brain surgery.

At this point, the Kota family has now collected 675 units -- and counting -- in their 12 years of hosting the blood drive.
