Join your friends and fellow parishioners from the surrounding States for a fun-filled weekend featuring golf, basketball, bocce ball, volleyball and tennis tournaments at the Donna Petrovic Memorial Tournament. All proceeds will benefit the St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral. New for 2013, we have added another sport in our tournament. 3x3 Basketball will be new this year. We hope that this added sport will be able to attract and include our young friends and parishioners in making this an even better tournament.
Formerly known as the St. Sava Open in 2007-08, the Donna Petrovic Memorial Tournament attempts to honor and memorialize our beloved late friend, fellow parishioner and 2008 Church Board President that we all loved dearly. With the new name we hope to invoke wonderful spirit of brotherliness and generosity as we participate in a good and worthy cause.
Last year in 2012, we held the 4th Annual Donna Petrovic Memorial Tournament held at Silverspring Country Club for Golf, Volleyball and Bocce Ball Tournaments at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral grounds and Tennis at Greenfield High School. We raised more than $15,000 for our beautiful Cathedral! In the last four years, we have raised close to $50,000 for St. Sava. We would like to thank all that participated in the tournament and made it a success! Thank you all for keeping the spirit of our late Donna alive in our community!
This years Tournament which will consist of 5 sports (golf, bocce ball, competitive volleyball, tennis and our newest sport of 3x3 basketball) with Zabava afterwards will be held on Saturday, June 15th, 2013. The proceeds will assist the Church with increasing expenses and much needed maintenance. The St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral is the Jewel of the Midwest and these proceeds will help preserve that status.
Our late sister Donna is surely smiling down at all of us as the two things she was most dedicated to were her family and the Church. Her beloved husband Rade and her two beautiful daughters, Tanja and Daniela “Buba” Petrovic gladly gave us their blessing to rename the Tournament as they knew it would make Donna proud. This Annual Event is a memorial to her undying love for her Church and her family.
May God Bless You – Pomaže Bog!
