Rev. Paul J. Farber, C.S.C. Memorial Golf Tournament Held at Fox Hill Country Club

 

Many alumni and friends enjoyed a day of golf at the 36th Annual Rev. Paul J. Farber, C.S.C. Memorial Golf Tournament. Held at Fox Hill Country Club, this event is organized by the Farber Golf Committee whose members raise funds to support students at King’s through the Farber Memorial Scholarship. New in 2021 was a “Wine Pull” in which guests could take a chance to win a premium bottle of wine, but at the very least, take home a bottle valued at least $20.


Pictured above are Committee Chair Brian Vinsko ’99; the winners of this year’s Tournament: Dr. J.C. Blewitt ’07, Dr. Charles Blewitt, Atty. Charles DeCosmo ’06, Mark Sciabacucchi ’05; and King’s VP for Institutional Advancement, Freddie Pettit ’96. 

 

Homecoming/Reunion 2021 Update

 

We are excited to announce that King's Homecoming/Reunion Weekend will be a great mix of in-person events as well as a few online options. We will be welcoming back all alumni to participate in some way over the weekend of September 17-19, 2021. We are especially excited to celebrate with classes celebrating milestone reunions, including those we missed last year. The Class of 1970 and 1971 will co-celebrate their 50th Anniversary since graduation and will receive their Golden Monarch pins at a special Mass during the weekend. There will be a golf outing, class reunions, and of course the Alumni Tent at the Homecoming Football Game. Registration will be open soon and invites will be mailed to classes in reunion years.

Meet the Author Book Club: Class of 2000’s Nina “Bocci” Centi

Nina Bocci headshot

King’s Alumna Nina Cinti ’00 is a USA Today bestselling novelist and will be our guest at our end-of-summer online Book Club meeting on August 25th. Our suggested book to read before the event is her book "On the Corner of Love and Hate." You can find it by searching under her pen name “Nina Bocci.”


"On the Corner of Love and Hate" is the first book of her Hopeless Romantics series in which a young woman is forced to help her old friend revamp his image for the upcoming mayoral elections... and discovers that she might not be as immune to his charms as she once thought!


Please register now and join us to meet Nina and learn how she became a writer, her writing practice, and why she loves romantic comedies, mysteries, and everything in-between. You don’t have to have read the book to enjoy this fun night with Monarchs who share your love of reading.
