Annual Golf Outing a Rousing Success

Notre Dame’s 10th Annual Falcon Golf Classic was a rousing success, raising a record amount of cash and in-kind donations for the College’s athletics department.

Hosted by Falcon Athletics and the NDC Development Office, 130 alumni, employees and friends of the Notre Dame community participated in the 18-hole scramble at StoneWater Golf Club in Highland Heights on July 18. The proceeds from the event support NDC's 23 athletic programs and its 700-plus student-athletes.

“As we enter this all-important provisional year on our quest to become a member of NCAA Division II, the support of our community is critical,” said Dave Armstrong, vice president for development. “This event’s success was further indication that we have wonderful support.”

Armstrong thanked event co-chairs Bobby DiBiasio and Rich Garcia for donating countless hours and helping make the outing a success. He gave special thanks to Director of Development Al DiFranco and Assistant Athletic Director Kevin Bille for doing the little and big things to make the event so enjoyable.

“One of the big highlights for everyone at this event is always the golf course itself,” Armstrong said. “So much appreciation goes out to Jimmy Hanlin and the folks at StoneWater for being such great hosts again this year and having the course in such great shape.”

Armstrong also highlighted the sponsors without whom the golf outing wouldn’t have been possible. “This outing continues to bring in more and more dollars every year because of their renewed support,” he said. “We sincerely appreciate the annual Presenting Sponsorship support from Lakefront Lines. Also, big kudos to ESPN Cleveland and The Really Big Show for their Media Sponsorship this year.”

Armstrong also thanked the more than 20 Falcon and Mini-Falcon Sponsors, which included:

  • Cleveland Indians
  • Daryl and Jenniffer Deckard
  • Rich and Robbin Garcia
  • Mac Donley
  • Michael Shaughnessy
  • Mike Sloe – Total ID Solutions
  • SportsTime Ohio
  • Todd Associates

Next year’s golf outing is scheduled for July 16, 2012. Mark your calendars now!
