The Roncalli Catholic community came together to celebrate a sold-out 34th annual Swing with Pride, A. Len Leavitt Memorial Golf Open at The Players Club at Deer Creek in Omaha on Monday, July 25.

The event is a long-standing Roncalli Catholic tradition that began in 1989 under A. Len Leavitt and Roncalli Catholic President Emeritus Fr. Lloyd Gnirk as a means to raise funds to support educational opportunities for students. That goal remains the same today. This year, Swing with Pride raised $46,610 to support the school it prepares to resume classes on August 15. 

“We were all extremely excited to see members of the Roncalli Catholic community come out and support our school by selling out this year’s Swing with Pride fundraiser,” Melissa Baumann, events and alumni coordinator, said. 

Participants checked into the event around 10:30 a.m., followed by an 11 a.m. lunch and social hour. At noon a shotgun start signaled the beginning of another successful Swing with Pride fundraiser. 

The continued success of Roncalli Catholic’s annual Swing with Pride event would not be possible without the continued support of its sponsors, including: Mainelli Mechanical Contractors, Inc., Catholic Mutual Group, The Andrews Family, Bland Cares Foundation, The Burns Family, The Feldhaus Family, In Memory of Joe Laferla, Merrill Lynch, L.T. Service Company, L.L.C., Nastase Contracting Inc., Nelson Murphy Insurance and Investments, Dave Neubauer and Lori Bruck, Security Equipment, Inc., Taco Johns, Ramm Construction, Inc., Weatherguard Inc., HBE, American National Bank, Abraham Catering, Albireo Energy, Creighton University, Forest Green Lawn and Landscaping, Mama’s Pizza, Orion Equipment Inc. Sunridge Village Retirement Community, Independent Roofing Company. 

“We are so thankful for the support of our sponsors and participants for making this year’s Swing with Pride fundraiser such a success,” Roncalli Catholic President Sean Keisling said. “The momentum from this event will translate into another strong start to our 2022-23 academic year.” 

Roncalli Catholic will host its next annual Swing with Pride fundraiser on Monday, July 24, 2023 at The Players Club at Deer Creek. We look forward to seeing you there!
