Calabria And Leary Honored For Generosity To Friar Athletics
Jan. 24, 2013
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Saturday, January 19th Joe '65 and his wife Sugar Calabria and Bill '60 and his wife Emily Leary were honored during the men's basketball game vs. Villanova for their unprecedented support of Providence College. This year both the Calabria's and Leary's lifetime giving to Providence College surpassed $1 million.
Joe and Sugar Calabria have made an impact on every area of the College campus from assisting with the renovation to St. Dominic Chapel to purchasing computers for the College. The cornerstone of the Calabria's imprint on the College however can be seen in the Calabria Men's Basketball Hallway of Legends. Thanks to the generosity of the Calabria's the hallway has been transformed to showcase the legacy of Friar basketball and is truly one of the greatest facilities in all of college basketball.
The generosity of Bill and Emily Leary has transformed Providence College. Their generosity knows no boundaries and has helped with the renovation to Harkins Hall and provided students with financial aid through the Angel Fund. For Friar hockey fans, the Leary's need no introduction as their name has already been forever associated with Friar hockey. Thanks to the generosity of the Leary's, the Leary Friends of Friar Hockey Room at Schneider Arena was transformed into a first-class facility for fans to watch Friar hockey. Their generosity reaches to the opposite side of Schneider as well where the women's ice hockey locker room was completely renovated thanks to their support.
"The generosity of the Calabria's and the Leary's has taken Friar athletics to a new level. Their legacy can be seen in the facilities they have built and their impact transcends these projects to impact our student-athletes, coaches and fans every day. Joe, Sugar, Bill and Emily have truly become ingrained in the Friar family and it is people like them that make Providence College such a special place" said Athletic Director, Bob Driscoll.
