LINCROFT: CBA ALUMNI, FRIENDS RAISE $35K

Press release from Christian Brothers Academy

For over 30 years, Brother Andrew O’Gara was a fixture of the Christian Brothers Academy community, arriving in 1979 as principal and being named the school’s first president in 1991. O’Gara faithfully served the Academy before his passing in November 2008 — and every year, the school honors his dedication and service via the annual Brother Andrew Fall Outing.

Sponsored by the CBA Fathers’ Club, the event actively recognizes Br. Andrew’s mission of educating the next generation of leaders, and helping those who might not otherwise be able to attend CBA due to financial means. Proceeds from the event go towards financial support for current CBA students — and on October 3, the Outing successfully raised over $35,000 toward that goal.

Hosted at Metedeconk National Golf Club in Jackson, the event included a great day of play, lunch and dinner, a silent auction of golf packages, and several major giveaways like a trip to Sanibel Island and 3 JetBlue giveaways.

The Fathers Club wishes to thank the honorary event chair Sean Pattwell, event planner Gerry Ward, and CBA Fathers Club president Jack D’Agostaro for another great outing.
