Vision Cup Golf Outing Raises $50,000
June 13, 2013
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
On Thursday, May 23 the Providence College Athletic Department held its NYC Metro Vision Cup Golf Outing at the Stanwich Club in Greenwich, Conn.
The Vision Cup is the premier series of golf outings for Friar Athletics and May’s outing raised more than $50,000 to support the men’s basketball program. Participants had a chance to play with and against Friar Head Coach Ed Cooley and his staff for the opportunity to travel with the men’s basketball team on a private charter flight this season. The winning foursome was Pete Peterson ’86, Jim Augur ‘87, Bob Andrade and Jim Hudak.
The evening prior to the tournament, Karl ’88 and Kerry ’88 Anderson hosted a reception at their home in Greenwich, Conn., for the players, local alumni, parents and supporters of Providence College. The event was a tremendous success and guests were able to meet Athletics Director Bob Driscoll, Cooley, Head Lacrosse Coach Chris Gabrielli and many other members of the Providence College community.
“The Vision Cup provides our men’s basketball program with the financial resources it needs to compete with the best programs in the country,” Driscoll said. “This has been one of our most successful fundraisers and I always enjoy spending the day with some of our most loyal supporters. I want to especially thank Karl and Kerry Anderson for opening their home and hosting a great Friar event on Wednesday night.”
“I continue to be amazed at the strength and generosity of our Friar family,” Cooley said. “I want to thank everyone who came out to play in this year’s Vision Cup at Stanwich and I am already looking forward to our next outing at Newport in October.”
The next Vision Cup will be held on Monday, Oct. 7 at the Newport Country Club. To register, please visit http://alumni.providence.edu/newportvisioncup or call 401-865-1880.
