This is the 21st year golfers have traveled to the Meadow Brook Golf Club in Jericho, Long Island, to raise funds for the college. The golf outing was founded by President Dugan and fellow St. Francis College alumnus Edward Travaglianti ’70, with the premise of having fun while supporting scholarships to enable students to achieve a quality, private college education.
The check from the class of 1968 was presented to the Dugan family by Joseph T. Browne ’68, former senior advisor to the Commissioner of the National Football League, who represented the Class of ’68. The gift was dedicated to Brendan’s Big Dream Fund, preserving his memory and keeping alive his dedication to support current and future students at the college.
In total, more than $485,000 was raised at the event.
Joseph V. DiMauro, Richard W. Merzbacher, Alfred F. Thoben, CPA, and Edward Travaglianti, all from the class of 1970, were awarded and received the Pace e Bene Award.
Since its inception, the outing has raised more than $3.5 million.
