HCHC Golf Tournament Festive and Successful
On Monday, July 20, 2015, more than 100 golfers enjoyed a day of golf, fellowship and food on a warm and beautiful day at the scenic seaside Kernwood Country Club in Salem, MA, while raising more than $75,000 for Hellenic College Holy Cross. The 23rd Annual HCHC Nicholas J. Bouras Memorial Golf Classic tournament officially began with a prayer offered before 50 golf carts with occupants from New England and from as far away as Atlanta, GA.
While on the course, golfers enjoyed grilled locanico as well as chicken and lamb souvlaki. At the end of the day, a delicious steak and lobster dinner was served, during which HCHC President, V. Rev. Christopher T. Metropulos, thanked the sponsors and participants for their generosity on behalf HCHC. “Today’s tournament marks another important event in the history of our sacred school. HCHC represents the future of our faith in preparing the leaders, both clergy and lay, who will assure our future is bright. My prayer is that next year the number of golfers will double and that similar events will spring up across the country. Your support is more critical today than ever before!”
