17th Annual Golf Classic Honors Prep Coaches: Tim Leary '63 and Tom Finn H'02 (posthumously)
On Monday, June 21st the Prep Community joined together once again for the 17th Annual Golf Classic at Cherry Valley Club in Garden City. This year's honorees were Coach Tim Leary '63 and the late Coach Tom Finn H'02.
Over 150 golfers and more than 250 dinner guests participated on a beautiful day to raise money for the Prep's scholarship and sponsorship programs. Tritec Building Company, the managing contractor for the Prep's Capital Improvement Program, sponsored the event, while BMS/Bank of New York Mellon, CulinArt, and John J. Brown '76 provided additional major sponsorships.
A live auction, silent auction, top-drawer raffle (with great prizes), and a 50/50 raffle (with $900 to the winner) were all part of the festivities, along with the wonderful presentations to honor and recognize Coach Leary and Coach Finn for their many accomplishments.
The Golf award winners for the day included: Putting Contest: Tony Flynn; Closest-to-the-pins: Kevin Sweeney, Tony Lopez; Longest Drives: Gerilyn Coccia, Bob Burden; Closest-to-the-line: Chris Janson; Low Net Teams (tie): Jane Modry, Brian Wagner, Allen Caliman, Elena Caliman; and Vincent Porecca, Frank Mancini, Joe Trotti, Bernie McGovern; Low Gross Teams (1st): Robert Williams, Brian Ott, Murat Kuraca, Kevin Collucci; (2nd): Marty Tener, Martin Murphy, Damien Tener, Phil Amadeo; Low Net Individual Score: Richard Luciano (72); Low Gross Individual Score: Martin Murphy (78).
Many thanks to everyone who participated and provided their support! The administration and the students at St. Francis Prep are very grateful for everything you do to help this fine school as it looks toward the next 150 years. Thanks again!
