CCRI Fall Classic raises $37,000 for student support
Sept. 22, 2011
Bright blue skies welcomed participants, sponsors and volunteers to the picturesque Alpine Country Club for CCRI’s 17th annual Fall Classic on Sept. 19. This year’s tournament raised a record-breaking $37,000 for student financial support.
More than 100 golfers enjoyed lunch and teed off in support of the college’s annual golf tournament, aided by a dozen CCRI volunteers. View photos from the event.
Organizers attribute the success of this tournament to the generosity of its sponsors. Ameresco, Honeywell and Independent Insurance Agents of Rhode Island returned as presenting sponsors, while Atrion/Cisco and Picerne Military Housing were new additions to the presenting sponsor list. Delta Mechanical Contractors was another new entry in the role of cart sponsor. In addition, 13 corporate foursomes participated.
Following golf, participants returned to the ballroom, where hors d’oeuvres, pasta and beverages were served. President Ray Di Pasquale and tournament co-chair George Loftus, CEO of OSHEAN, addressed the crowd and guests bid on a wide array of silent auction items and collected their raffle prizes. Almost $3,000 was raised through the auction and raffle.
Since the tournament began 17 years ago through the efforts of former CCRI administrators Joe DiMaria and Ray Ferland, more than $350,000 has been raised to help students with scholarship assistance, textbook purchases and a variety of other forms of financial assistance.
