GRF is pleased to sponsor the 8th Annual Colleen Classic Golf Tournament.
The main Rosaria fundraiser is the annual Colleen Classic Golf Outing, named in memory of Colleen Mary
Welch. The daughter of Rosaria co-founder, Tom Welch, Colleen had Down syndrome and died from a sudden
illness in 2013 at age 22. In many ways, Colleen is the inspiration for Rosaria Communities. Her infectious
personality and unconditional love for everyone continue to inform the spirit of the Rosaria mission.
The 7th Annual Colleen Classic was held in October of 2020 at the beautiful Blue Mash Golf Course in
Laytonsville, MD. A full field of players signed up within days, and corporate sponsors were plentiful. We
had a beautiful autumn day and heard consistent feedback that the Colleen Classic was both fun and
well organized. The event raised more than $93,000.
