Stanner Golf Classic Update

  • When: Monday, May 3, 2021
  • Where: North Hills, North Hempstead, Garden City, Plandome
  • Contact: Matt Rizzotti ’04 | 929-446-4470 |

The 35th Annual Jim Kinnier Stanner Golf Classic is this coming Monday, May 3rd! Since 1987, the Classic has helped Molloy raise over $3 million benefiting amazing students through our scholarship program. This year's outing will be historic, as we have expanded to four private golf courses for the first time. The addition of a fourth course was due to popular demand, but also so Molloy can best comply with all health and safety guidelines and provide the safest experience possible.

If you are registered to play on Monday, we'll see you on the greens! If you aren't playing, you can still participate by placing a bid in our Online Auction or downloading our Digital Journal. You can also read more about our 2021 Co-Chairs, James Jordan '01 and Carissa Jordan '04, on this page.

If you have any questions about the outing, please contact Alumni Development Officer Matt Rizzotti ’04 using the information listed above. Thank you for your support of the 35th Annual Jim Kinnier Stanner Golf Classic.

Previously, he was an analyst for the Global Fixed Income Group at BlackRock Financial Management.

Carissa Jordan '04 is Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Benjamin Talks, a media/content company focusing on all things family & finance. Hailing from Queens, NY, Carissa Jordan graduated in the first co-ed class of Archbishop Molloy in 2004.

James and Carissa reside in Lloyd Harbor, NY with their three young children.
James and Carissa have always maintained a strong connection with Molloy. “I always felt so proud to be a member of Molloy’s first coed class, and James and I both feel that Molloy truly shaped the adults we became,” said Carissa. “We both feel much more tied to Molloy than we do to our college alma maters. It’s the culture of Molloy, our relationships with our classmates and teachers, and the way Molloy always feels like a second home. We also believe the education at Molloy was and continues to be top notch. We’re honored to be involved as alumni because we can help make sure teenagers can enjoy the same opportunities we once did.”
Regarding their involvement with the Jim Kinnier Stanner Golf Classic, Carissa and James take great pride in supporting the event. “James has been involved in the golf outing for a number of years, and I’ve been really excited about being involved more recently, including being a member of the first alumnae foursome a few years back. We both realized at one point that this is the banner fundraiser for the school, and we’re really happy to be a part of it, to help raise money so kids can be afforded the same education we received. As alumni, volunteering in this way contributes to who we are, and it’s really exciting for James and I to be able to share that role as husband and wife and alumni.”
