CCRI Fall Classic raises more than $28,000
Oct. 2, 2010
Sponsors, golfers and contributors rose to the challenge at the 16th Annual CCRI Fall Classic, which raised $28,000 for student financial support in a tournament that was aided by sunny skies blanketing Narragansett Bay and Warwick Country Club. View photos of the event.
The 124 golfers who responded to the invitation to play in the Sept. 20 event were assisted by more than a dozen CCRI volunteers.
The financial success of the tournament is directly attributable to this year’s presenting sponsors: Ameresco, Honeywell and the Independent Insurance Agents of Rhode Island. Other tournament sponsors include Adler, Pollock and Sheehan as reception sponsor and Pare Corp. as cart sponsor.
Following golf, a reception was held in the Warwick Country Club dining room, where stories of golfing prowess were traded between bites of hors d’oeuvres, pasta, desserts and beverages. More than $2,000 was raised in a spirited auction conducted by President Ray Di Pasquale, and golfers offered up an additional $4,000 for dozens of silent auction and raffle items.
Since the tournament began 16 years ago through the efforts of former CCRI administrators Joe DiMaria and Ray Ferland, more than $300,000 has been raised to help students with scholarship assistance, book purchases and a variety of other forms of financial assistance. At the conclusion of the tournament, President Di Pasquale thanked everyone and asked them to reserve Sept. 19, 2011, for the next CCRI Fall Classic.
