The Saints Alive! Athletic Fund will host a pair of golf tournaments in the coming month and you are invited to share in the excitement. The annual Gino Turchi & Family Golf Classic will be held Thursday, September 24 at Eagle Crest Golf Club, and on Thursday, October 8 a full day of activities are planned at Turning Stone Casino, highlighted by 18 holes of golf at the world class Shenendoah Course.

The Gino Turchi & Family Classic debuted in 2006 when over 75 golfers turned out for a day of wonderful golf and an evening dinner. The funds raised from the Tournament are donated to the Turchi Family Fund, which was formed by Siena socialite and philanthropist Gino Turchi as part of his 90th birthday festivities at the College. Gino will again be on hand this year with his wife of 70 years Willie.
