North Texas Area Purple Knights and friends of St. Augustine High School gathered on Friday, April 28, for the Annual Association of St. Augustine High School Alumni – Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter Scholarship Golf Tournament with more than 40 golfers bidding for prizes and bragging rights.
The golf tournament serves as a key fundraiser for the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Alumni Chapter with proceeds helping to provide scholarships to deserving St. Augustine students.
Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Alumni Chapter President Norey Smith IV, ’99, said, “On behalf of the Association of St. Augustine – DFW Alumni chapter, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to each of our sponsors, golfers, and supporters.” “Without their commitment to the mission that we have established, the success we’ve had over the last 3 years would not be possible,” Smith added.
With eighteen sponsors, including New Orleans’ Son of a Saint, the 2017 chapter golf tournament was a great success.
Kenneth St. Charles, Ph.D., St. Augustine High School President and CEO said, “the annual DFW Chapter Golf Tournament is a great event that allows all Purple Knights and friends of the North Texas community to reconnect, reminisce, and have a great time together.” St. Charles added, “St. Augustine alumni from across the country remain committed to guaranteeing the success of their alma mater, which in many ways can measured by our unwavering commitment to ensure that current and future students receive a great education. I assure you that our students are forever grateful to all of our alumni and supporters who choose to continue to financially support our educational mission.”
Participants enjoyed 18 holes of golf at Shady Valley Country Club Golf Course, named one of the Best Country Clubs in the DFW Area (Avid Golfer, 2011, 2013 and 2014). Golfers tee’d off with a 4-person scramble and participated in a host of contests including the 4-person scramble, longest drive, and closest to pin. The day concluded with lunch, a fellowship reception, and awards and prizes following the tournament.
