Golf Outing Tops the $2 Million Mark!

On Sept. 26, 2017, more than 100 golfers and supporters attended the 8th Annual Friends of the Jesuits Golf Outing at the beautiful Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, N.Y.

This year’s outing helped raise more than $335,000, and over the past eight years, the Friends of the Jesuits have now raised more than $2 million, benefiting the Jesuits and helping our ministries in need. In addition to celebrating the 80th birthday of Fr. James Keenan, SJ, this year’s attendees took part in a special appeal to support the Jesuit works in Micronesia, raising nearly $17,000. At the event, Fr. John Cecero, SJ, provincial of the USA Northeast Province, thanked donors and talked about what the province is able to do thanks to the support from the outing.

Fr. John Cecero, SJ, and Fr. James Keenan, SJ, with Gary Goodenough, chair of the Friends of the Jesuits Golf Outing committee, along with this year’s committee members who attended the outing.

“You’ll see in the room this evening several Jesuit scholastics. We call them our spes gregis: hope of the flock. The formation of these men lasts between nine and twelve years and is something that is funded entirely through the province office, and your participation today certainly helps us to support them,” said Fr. Cecero. “We Jesuits and our works can flourish because of friends like you. Thank you, and God Bless you.”

Group awards were presented to the foursomes with the best scores. The award for low net was given to Mike McCallister, Mike Ferraro, Jack Traynor and Damian Quinn, and the award for low gross was given to Dan Denihan Jr., Jay Jalbert, Sean Denihan and Kealan O’Reilly.

“This year’s outing was yet another resounding success,” said James Skurka, interim provincial assistant for advancement and communications. “We are grateful to our friends who supported the outing through their participation, sponsorships and donations.
