On Monday, June 14, Cabrini University hosted its 32nd Annual Cabrini Classic. More than 100 golfers spent the afternoon on the greens at Waynesborough Country Club in Paoli for a fun day of golf, followed by dinner, a silent auction, and testimonies from several important members of the Cabrini community.
Thanks to the support of many sponsors, donors, golfers, auction participants, and attendees, the event raised more than $115,000 to support our students and the unique Cabrini educational experience.
Robert Jara (P’13), outgoing member of the Board of Trustees and former Chair of the Cabrini Golf Committee, was presented with an award to commemorate his unwavering commitment to the success of the Classic over the last 10 years, as well as to the University as a whole.
“Bob has been an unbelievable University partner,” said Cabrini President Donald B. Taylor, PhD. Referencing Jara’s nine-year tenure as a Trustee and his service as the head of the Finance Committee, President Taylor said, “Bob used his expertise to help get our bonds refinanced and—many may not know this—was instrumental in getting our Nursing Program launched. The program wouldn’t have been possible without him.”
Students Ryan Calderaro (’22) and Ashley Tutzauer (’21) spoke about their extraordinary experiences and opportunities as multi-sport athletes at Cabrini. Calderaro plays on the tennis and golf teams and Tutzauer on the women’s lacrosse, basketball, and soccer teams.
“When I pick up my golf club or a tennis racket, I become a part of something bigger than myself,” said Calderaro, a double major in Business Management and Marketing. “I become a part of a living legacy of Cavaliers that dates all the way back to 1957."
“It’s because of your support that we are enabled to succeed and excel. To raise up back-to-back Atlantic East Conference golf championship trophies. These championships do not belong to us alone. They belong to every single person who calls themselves a Cavalier.”
“I want to thank all of you for your kindness and generosity in making Cabrini what it is,” Tutzauer said. “I will always be grateful for the leadership, professional opportunities, student-athlete experience, and an Education of the Heart, which is unlike any other.”
To conclude the evening, prizes were presented to the winners of the scramble tournament. For the fourth year in a row, the foursome of David Anders (ʼ18), Dan Gentilucci (ʼ17), Joseph Myers (ʼ17), and Pat Rooney (ʼ14) finished in first place.
