Saint Viator’s inaugural Pat Mahoney Golf Classic welcomed alumni, friends and Mahoney fans from his nearly 50-year history with the school. 7o guests came out to Old Orchard Country Club to support “the man, the myth, the legend” and raise funds for the Alumni Scholarship Endowment for legacy students, which provides critical tuition assistance for second and third generation Lions.
“Pat Mahoney was an integral part of our school for a long time and is still a mentor to many of us today. Thus, we can’t think of a better way to honor him than with this outing,” said Tom Ramsden, Vice President of Development.
Before the group teed off, Mahoney thanked everyone for being there and encouraged them to continue supporting Saint Viator. He stressed that the school has not changed over the years. It remains the same loving, caring community he joined in 1967 and he’s forever proud to be a part of it.
While on the course, golfers participated in hole-in-one, longest drive, and closest to the pin contests. There was also a ball launcher on hand that propelled balls toward the pin.
After the 18 holes, guests enjoyed a happy hour and then ended the day with awards.
