PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Thursday, May 15, the Providence College Athletics Department held its Vision Cup Golf Outing at the Stanwich Club in Greenwich, Conn. The event raised more than $100,000 to be used for charter flights next season for the men's basketball team.
Participants had a chance to play with 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 Robert Campbell `05, Stephen Woelfel `05, Jim O'Brien `05, and Brendan McCarthy `05.
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 Providence College President, Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P. `80, Coach Ed Cooley, Head Hockey Coach Nate Leaman, Head Soccer Coach Craig Stewart and many other members of the Providence College community.
"I am proud to be part of a group that found a creative way to make a difference," Providence College Board of Trustee member Karl Anderson said. "The Vision Cup, played at The Stanwich Club, contributed more than $100,000 this year and we hope to do even better this fall at Newport CC. Since the inception, the contributions now exceed $500,000 and it is a credit to the alumni, students and parents wanting to participate in the building of the PC Basketball program. Many people have worked hard to make the Vision Cup successful but we could not reach these goals if not for Ed Cooley, his staff and the success of the team."
"I want to thank everyone who played in this year's Vision Cup at Stanwich," Providence College Head Ed Cooley said. "The Vision Cup gives our program the financial resources that we need to compete at the highest level every year."
Providence College Athletics would especially like to thank Santander Bank for being the presenting sponsor of the Vision Cup Golf Tournaments.
The next Vision Cup will be held on Monday, Oct. 6 at the Newport Country Club. To register, please visit http://alumni.providence.edu/newportvisioncup or call 401-865-1880.
