Yesterday, we at Don Bosco Prep held our 18th Annual Fr. Al Sokol Golf Classic at the Arcola Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey, where all proceeds benefited student tuition assistance.
Over 100 golfers, comprised mostly of DBP alumni, parents, and donors, took to the course after lunch to enjoy an afternoon of perfect weather, golf and camaraderie. During the outing, golfers were greeted at Hole 7 by Christopher Rauchet ‘18, Captain of the DBP Varsity Golf Team, who challenged them to a “Closest to the Hole” competition.
Once all of the golfers finished the course for the afternoon, they came inside to enjoy a cocktail hour followed by a buffet dinner. Before dinner however, Fr. James Heuser, SDB, our Director/President gave an opening prayer where he blessed the food and thanked everyone for coming out to support the Golf Classic.
Chopper Russo ‘79 served as emcee for our live auction, which included NY Jets suite tickets, several golf course foursomes, and tickets for Army vs. Navy football..
It was a great day for all who attended. Thank you Rich Wisniewski, Director of Alumni and Special Events, for putting together another successful outing. We can’t wait to see everyone again next year!
