Hey guys, just checking in from our annual charity golf tournament here in New Jersey!

Four years ago, my family and I started the tournament to raise funds for Gloucester Catholic Junior Senior High School. Myself, my brother and my sisters attended the school and it had a tremendous impact on all of us. Not only did the school give us all a great education - my dad, Guy, helped start the hockey program at the school, which played a big role in Matt and I's development as players.

We wanted to be able to give back to the school and our community so we started the tournament as a way to provide scholarships to students in the area. Since the first year, it has grown a ton and we've been able to provide upwards of 80 scholarships.

I want to thank everyone who has supported the tournament. We are so privileged to have such a great support system that has volunteered their time or made donations - it has allowed us to increase the number of scholarships given out.

 

 

We can't wait to see it grow in the coming years and continue providing scholarships funds to Gloucester Catholic!
