The 60th Annual CYC Sports Awards Banquet and the 75th Anniversary Celebration of the Archdiocesan youth department will be held on Thursday, October 27th at the Clayton Plaza Hotel. This banquet honors the many volunteers who have donated their time and talents to the Catholic Youth Council program over the years. Archbishop Carlson is scheduled to be present for the evening, and Bill McDermott, "Mr. Soccer", will serve as the Master of Ceremonies.
Along with the Silver Boot award for contributions to soccer in the St. Louis area, the CYC will also honor each of the five "District Persons of the Year" and will present a "Sports Service" award for significant contributions to each of the following CYC sports: baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, track and golf.
We encourage all to purchase tickets to attend this year's banquet and show your support for our dedicated CYC volunteers and the entire CYC program.
