On May 3, 2021, the Stanner Alumni Center was excited to offer our first in-person event since early 2020. The 35th Annual Jim Kinnier Stanner Golf Classic welcomed many longtime golfers and sponsors back, as well as many new participants. It was great to see everyone.
This year’s outing was historic for several reasons. First, the event expanded from three golf courses to four, which was part of the Stanner Alumni Center’s effort to comply with capacity restrictions and social distancing guidelines and provide the safest experience possible. Second, expanding to four courses allowed for a record number of golfers, over 375! Third, our chairpersons, James Jordan ’01 and Carissa Jordan ’04, worked hard to recruit over 20 tennis players for our first-ever Tennis Tournament. Lastly, this year’s outing raised over $239,000 in support of Molloy’s scholarship program, surpassing our previous record by over $54,000! This wonderful accomplishment was made possible by the generosity and dedication of our amazing alumni, corporate sponsors, volunteers, and so many others. From everyone at Molloy and the Stanner Alumni Center, THANK YOU for supporting our students.
During the outing, Molloy announced two incoming freshmen will receive scholarships beginning this fall thanks to this year’s Jim Kinnier Stanner Golf Classic. Congratulations to Mackenzie Clarke of Sewanhaka High School on receiving the Jim Kinnier Scholarship, and congratulations to Annabelle Montano of St. Stan’s Middle School on receiving the John Gibbons Memorial Scholarship.
