Church raising money for new roof

DOWNEY - St. Dominic Savio will host its eighth annual youth golf tournament Oct. 24 at the Rio Hondo Golf Club in Downey.Proceeds will benefit the church's youth center, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. For the past 10 years the Bellflower youth center has been home to young people in the community; a place to safely enjoy sports, music, art and fellowship. Past golf tournaments have allowed St. Dominic Savio to equip the youth center with new flooring, fire retardant curtains, security doors, new lighting, shatter-proof glass windows, retractable basketball hoops, security cameras, a sound system, and painted wall tiles. The church is now attempting to replace the center's leaky roof before the rainy season starts. The cost to participate in the tournament is $110 if paid before Oct. 7 and includes golf, golf cart, lunch, dinner and an opportunity to win a 2013 Lexus RX350. The church is also accepting $100 corporate sponsorships and donations to be used as raffle prizes. To participate in the tournament, checks should be made payable to SDS Youth Center and mailed to Ellie Eck, 9955 Brookshire Ave., Downey CA 90240. For more information, call Ellie Eck at (562) 869-9737 or Manuel Merino at (562) 863-8213.
