On June 1, 2013, the 5th annual Brian Cashmere Memorial Golf Tournament took place at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club in Mountaintop, PA. The annual tournament is a fundraiser for the Brian Cashmere Fund Scholarship, awarded annually to a graduating senior from Pittston Area Senior High School. This year’s tournament was the most successful to date. Over ninety golfers participated, and enjoyed great weather throughout the day. The winning team of Matt Pedrosky, Dan Mancini, Jim Lanza, and Dan Troynacki took home the championship trophy, turning in a score of eleven under par. After the golfers finished their round, there was a dinner and award ceremony held at Blue Ridge.
In addition to awarding the winning golf team, the winner of the 2013 Brian Cashmere Fund Scholarship was introduced. This year’s winner was Matt Carroll, of Avoca, a graduating Pittston Area senior who plans on attending the University of Pittsburgh in the fall. Matt has had several accomplishments while at Pittston Area, most notably as captain of the varsity golf team, and a strong academic record throughout his four years of high school.
This year’s scholarship award was $8,000 for Matt’s tuition costs while in college. This is the third scholarship that the Brian Cashmere Fund was able to give, and it would not be possible without all of the support of the Pittston Area community, especially the sponsors listed below. The scholarship committee would like to thank all of this year’s participants, and sponsors for the most successful tournament yet.
