YOU Can Make an Impact at the Connolly Classic!

Did you know that one-third of our students need tuition assistance to attend Bishop O’Connell High School?

Join us at Westfields Golf Club on Tuesday, October 3, 2023, for the Connolly Memorial Classic Golf Tournament. Proceeds will help more students get a great Catholic education at Bishop O’Connell. Current and future Knights are counting on YOU. Learn more here.

Your all-inclusive golf registration includes greens fees, cart, meals, and beverages. It’s a fantastic deal! Based on golfer feedback, we've moved the start time up till 9:00 a.m. so there's time to get to the club, enjoy a hot breakfast and still have time to warm up for a day of golf.

To sweeten the deal, we have an Early Bird Special registration only available through August 1. Use discount code "EARLYBIRD2023" at checkout to receive an early bird price.

We rely on sponsors to help underwrite the tournament, as our low registration fees do not cover the entire cost of the outing. Consider adding one of our sponsor packages to position your company’s brand in front of our most ardent and active supporters. Register to play or browse sponsorship opportunities here.

Volunteers are needed for our tournament steering committee. For more information, contact Laura Friel at or 703-237-1446.

Thank You!

The 2022 Connolly Classic was an enormous success thanks to our generous sponsors, players and supporters. Your investment in the Connolly Classic directly impacts the availability of tuition assistance programs to students attending Bishop O'Connell.  Together, we raised over $50,000 to ensure that an O'Connell education is not out of reach for our families. Can you help us do even more as we plan for 2023? Email to find out more.

Check out some of the highlights of our day at Westfields in support of tuition assistance!
