Rain Held Off for Golf Outing
After much heavy rain during the morning of our golf outing, the sun came out and we were able to have a beautiful day for the annual Golf Outing. Some say it was the result of the prayers from Brother Frank Nurthen! The outing was on Friday, June 30 at Grantwood Golf Course in Solon, Ohio. Golfers were each given a purple folding chair with a gold charging lion on the back.
The Winking Lizard served up delicious hamburgers and sausage sandwiches for lunch. After golf, everyone made their way to the indoor banquet room to enjoy a chicken and rib dinner. We would like to thank Jeff and his crew for cooking and serving these tasty meals.
A 50/50 raffle was held and lots of great prizes were won. A special thank you to Paul Ertel ’71 who each year donates gift certificates for lunch and dinner cruises from the Nautica Queen.
Paul Palumbo ’73, Pat Palumbo ’76, Greg Palumbo ’75 & Greg Sagerman took home first place by shooting 11 under par with a score of 60. They each received a nice plaque from Minotas Trophies and a Dicks Sporting Goods gift card. Congratulations to each of them!
This golf outing event is our only fundraiser for our alumni association. We raised close to $10,400, which helps to keep our alumni going strong. We couldn’t have done this without the support of our hole sponsors. Mike D’Amato ’79, owner of Nissan of North Olmsted, sponsored a sign on every hole – “Are you Kiddin’ Me!” Thank you to all the sponsors. Your support is deeply appreciated.
We would like to thank everyone who volunteered to sell 50/50 tickets, hand out gifts and help with the skins game – Ben Carlozzo ’71, Rick Cavolo ’74, Frank Hlad ’68, Chris Lynch ’75, Joe Nista ’64, Richard Welsh ’72 and Terry Wise ’77. A special thank you goes out to Sue Wise. Each year she works hard to make sure everything runs smoothly. The golfers took up a special collection for her as a thank you for all the hard work she does for the alumni association. She was very humbled for this gesture and thanked everyone for the gift.
Please mark your calendar for next year’s outing. It will be Friday, June 29, 2018 at Grantwood Golf Course. We hope to see you there!
