Fundraiser for St Peter's College proves to be a tee-riffic success
Past pupils at St Peter's College took over the fairways at Wexford Golf Club recently as they hosted their 'Champagne Scramble' golf classic. A total of 34 teams of four teed off on the day and the event had wonderful support from sponsors, a total of 47 local businesses signing up to support the event.
All money raised from the event will go directly towards funding a new 4G Astro all weather pitch beside the existing Power pitch at the college.
Prior to the prize-giving, school principal Robert O'Callaghan thanked all who took the time out from their busy schedules to support the college and congratulated those who had come out on top in a hotly contested day on the course.
President of the Past Pupil's Union Declan Cloney thanked the captain and all the staff at Wexford Golf Club as well as organiser Garry Quinn and the other members of the past pupils committee.
The winners in the GUI section with 101 points were Alan O'Leary, Sean Walsh, Richard Browne and Jimmy O'Leary. First in the non GUI section with a score of 83 were Tom O'Gorman, Pat Murphy, Donie O'Brien and Michael Cullen.
Winner of the ladies' longest drive was Maggie Hearne; men's longest drive was Steven Healy and nearest the pin was Sam Dempsey.
St Peter's College Past Pupils Union also wished to remind people of the concert on the lawn at the school on June 28, which will feature the Celtic Tenors and the Loch Garman Band. Tickets are available from the college office.
