Aug. 6, 2013
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
On Monday, August 5, 2013, the Providence College Athletic Department held its annual Cox Sports Friar Golf Classic at Warwick Country Club in Warwick, R.I. The event was completely sold out and brought in over $100,000. The event serves as the athletic department's primary fundraiser and proceeds benefit Providence College's 300 student-athletes through academic scholarships and support. The funds from the event go to the Friar Forever Athletic Fund, which also seeks to improve Providence College's athletic facilities.
Providence College thanks its title sponsor Cox Sports, in addition to presenting sponsors ABM, Nelligan Sports Marketing and Hannoush Jewelers. Providence College Athletics would also like to thank Coca Cola and Gasbarro Wines for donating the beverages along with Graphic Innovations for donating the tee signs.
Participants at the event had the opportunity to meet and speak with a number of student-athletes, along with several Friar coaches, including men's basketball coach Ed Cooley, men's ice hockey coach Nate Leaman, women's ice hockey coach Bob Deraney and lacrosse coach Chris Gabrielli.
Providence College President, Reverend Brian J. Shanley O.P. `80 also competed in the event. Each year the event gains a great deal of support from many notable alumni and local businesses.
The day started off with a lunch followed by a round of golf beginning at 11:30 a.m. All players in attendance received Nike Golf Shoes and were treated to Capital Grille steaks and oysters on the course. After the tournament, the day concluded with a reception that included dinner, an auction and an awards presentation.
