Diocesan Council of Catholic Women Raises Money for Bishop Blanchettte Scholarship Fund

The Joliet Diocesan Council of Catholic Women hosted the annual fundraising luncheon on behalf of the Bishop Blanchette Scholarship Fund on March 18 at Prairie Bluff Golf Club in Lockport.  The grandparents of one of the past winners spoke on what the scholarship meant to the whole family.

The scholarship, now in its 35th year, was established to provide scholarships to students attending Catholic high schools in the Diocese of Joliet.  One hundred and ninety six scholarships, totaling $427,650, have been awarded.
