Beautiful weather and record results made the 2011 Alumni Golf
Outing a rousing success.
This year’s event raised $95,000 in revenue
for the Long Island Alumni Golf Outing Scholarship – the most in
its over-10-year history. Since its inception, this annual
fundraiser has generated approximately $400,000 and has helped to
sponsor the education of 21 students.
Albert M. Farina, CPA ’75CBA, Senior Vice President and Chief
Financial Officer of Sound Shore Health System, served as the day's
honoree. An active member of the University community, Farina
attributes much of his professional success to what he learned at
St. John’s. He is committed to helping today’s students achieve
their own dreams of a St. John’s education, and he thanked the
attendees at the golf outing for their tremendous support.
“The course was great, the club was great and everybody had a
fantastic time,” Farina said. “And with the weather being so
beautiful, you just can’t get much better than this.”
Mark Andrews, Associate Director for Special Constituents in the
Office of Alumni Relations, was thrilled with the turnout and with
the generosity of all those who attended.
“Without question, this year’s Alumni Golf Outing was a tremendous
success,” he said. “It’s thanks to the dedication of the Alumni
Golf Committee and the outstanding contributions of our alumni and
friends that this record-setting day was possible.”
