Because insurance claims will only pay for a portion of the cost of last year’s fire, the parish of St. John Vianney Church is holding a golf tournament to help raise the difference.
Golfers can register for the charity tournament online at the church’s Facebook page, Rebuild SJV-Golf. The church is also seeking additional sponsors for the event.
The Rebuild St. John Vianney Church golf tournament will take place March 26 at the Friendly Hills Country Club in Whittier.
Sponsorship levels vary from $125 to $10,000. The chuch needs to raise about $6 million to rebuild.
The church sanctuary and part of the priest’s quarters of the popular Hacienda Heights church were burned in an arson fire on April 16, 2011.
