Kevin Carmody Open Golf Tournament to Benefit Fatherless Boys at Gonzaga
Thank you to all for making this year's event a huge success! We look forward to seeing all of you next year!
After 31 years, the mission of the Carmody Open remains unchanged – an affordable day of golf with good fun, food, and fellowship among friends (old and new) to benefit fatherless boys at Gonzaga.
In 1985, the first Carmody Open was held to benefit fatherless boys at Gonzaga. The need for assistance has not dwindled; rather, it has grown not only in terms of the number of boys that need your help, but also in the amount of funds required.
Carmody Open organizers, volunteers, golfers, and sponsors embody the Jesuit tradition of “Men for Others.” For more than 30 years they have supported this effort to help more than 70 fatherless boys at Gonzaga receive a values-oriented, college preparatory education. As a result of their efforts, the scholarship fund principal has grown each year for the past quarter-century.
It is the intention of the Gonzaga Alumni Association that, this tournament will continue to be a Gonzaga event like the annual Alumni Smoker, that people mark annually on their calendars.
Over the years, the Gonzaga Alumni Association had expanded the reach of the tournament. Kevin Carmody ’62 will always be honored and remembered each year, but in the recent past, other graduates of Gonzaga who died too young have also been recognized. The scholarships in the names of Jim Ronan ’83, Keith-Sean Lindsay ’84, Patrick McCarthy ’94, and Christian Myler ’95 have received funding through the Carmody Open.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer oe become a sponsor for next year, please call Byron T. Harper '84 at 202-336-7187.
