Other CCFESD Events

Bishop’s Cup Golf Tournament

The Bishop’s Cup Golf Tournament  is the longest-running Bishop’s Charity event for our diocese.  Established in 1994, this golf event is held in August of each year on the two most pristine courses in our diocese – The Country Club of Sioux Falls and Minnehaha County Country Club.  Proceeds from this event benefit Broom Tree Retreat and Conference Center, located near Irene, SD.


Notre Dame Football Experience

The Notre Dame Football Experience is a unique opportunity for fans of Notre Dame football to experience the trip of a lifetime to South Bend, Indiana for a game. This experience includes round-trip flights via private jet, game tickets, tailgating at the stadium, a private guided tour of the campus and all meals and beverages throughout the day. All proceeds benefit the Bishop Dudley Hospitality House.


Bishop’s Charity Hunt

Where else will you find your Bishop trading in his traditional black clerics for a blaze orange vest other than the annual Bishop’s Charity Hunt? This two-day event was established in 1995 and takes place in the heart of pheasant country on a private preserve near Kimball, SD. All proceeds benefit Newman Catholic campus ministry in the Diocese of Sioux Falls.
