Gator Golf Classic Raises Funds and Enthusiasm for Athletics

The first Gator Golf Classic - held in conjunction with Reunion Weekend 2005 - was a smashing success, both as a fundraiser for Russell Sage’s athletics program and as a fun event for the 92 golfers who participated, including alumnae, employees, and friends of the College.


The event raised more than $25,000 in support of travel opportunities for Russell Sage athletic teams to compete throughout the United States and abroad. (The Athletics Department anticipates sending the basketball team to Florida in December, the tennis team to South Carolina and the softball team to Florida in spring 2006, and the soccer team to England in summer 2006.) Funds will also support upgrades to athletic facilities and additional team needs.

 

Excitement is already building for the next Gator Golf Classic on June 2, 2006 at Mohawk River Country Club & Chateau, in Rexford, N.Y. For more information, contact Lisa Greiner, assistant director of athletics, at gatorgolf@sage.edu or (518) 244-6894.
