HC/HC Benefit Golf Tournament Set for July

BROOKLINE, Mass. – The 14th annual Hellenic College and Holy Cross Golf Tournament fund-raising event will tee off Monday, July 31 at Kernwood Country Club, in Salem, Mass.

Registration begins at 10 a.m. and for the first time in the tournament’s history includes a box lunch and full complement of beverages for each player, loaded on their golf cart.

The shotgun start of the tournament takes place at 11:30 a.m.

This year’s event will feature several exciting prizes, including Boston Red Sox tickets, golf outings at Kernwood Country Club, golf clubs and accessories from the Pro Shop at Kernwood.

Carrying on the tradition started by James Argeros 14 years ago, this year’s co-chairmen, Bob DeVasto and George Katsarakes, expect another record year, both in turnout and funds raised. This year’s tournament committee includes honorary Chairman Rev. Nicholas C. Triantafilou, Hellenic College-Holy Cross president, along with new member Tom Demakes. Joining them is founder James Argeros, Angelo Stamoulis, George Makredes, John Panagako, and Dr. Nick Marinakis. Working behind the scenes HC/HC Benefit Golf Tournament Set for July are Rev. James Katinas and Charlie Kroll. George Katsarakes stated, “Our committee is working to make this tournament more exciting every year. Supporting Hellenic College and Holy Cross is a worthy cause. Add to it the fun and fellowship, and this is a win for everyone involved.”

Bob DeVasto added, “It seems as though every year keeps on getting better, with more to offer our golfers, and ultimately more to give back to our College and School of Theology.”

This year’s tournament continues the tradition of souvlaki rounding the front nine, a festive cocktail party after the tournament, and a lobster and steak feast to cap things off. Cost per tournament player is $400. Fee includes golf, cart, a gift bag, food and beverages throughout the day.

All proceeds benefit Hellenic College and Holy Cross. In a departure from previous years, the benefit tennis tournament will be held on a different date, Friday, Sept. 15, at the prestigious Longwood Cricket Club in Chestnut Hill.
