The 2019 Friends of the Jesuits Golf Outing

Sept. 26, 2019 – On Tues., Sept. 24, 2019, nearly 100 golfers and supporters attended the 10th Annual Friends of the Jesuits Golf Outing at the beautiful Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, N.Y.

Over the past ten years, the Friends of the Jesuits Golf Outing has raised close to $2.5 million to support men in formation and senior Jesuits. 

After registering for the day, guests had the opportunity to talk with Jesuits and members of the province staff. When the golfers completed the course, they gathered for a reception where they had the chance to catch up with one another and representatives from the province. 

Fr. John Cecero, SJ, the provincial of the USA Northeast Province, thanked donors and talked about what the province can do thanks to the support from the outing.

“You may have met – or golfed with – some of the Rose Hill Jesuit scholastics who are here tonight,” said Fr. Cecero. “The formation of these men lasts between nine and twelve years and is something that is funded entirely through the province office. Thank you wholeheartedly for taking part in our special appeal earlier this evening. Your participation today certainly helps us to support them.”

The guests were then treated to a lively auction and placed bids for the chance to play on some of the best golf courses in the country. Group awards were given out for foursomes with the best scores. 

This year’s outing was yet another resounding success. We are grateful to our friends who supported the outing through their participation, sponsorships and donations.
