Mount Saint Mary College’s 41st Annual Invitational Golf and 8th Annual Invitational Tennis Tournament grossed $128,000 for the college on Monday, June 3.
The tournament, held at the Powelton Club in Newburgh, recognized Michael Gilfeather (golf honoree) and Jack Lease, Jr. (tennis honoree). About 225 friends of the college enjoyed the event.
The funds raised through the tournament assist the college in its efforts to keep the cost of a Mount education within the reach of deserving students, many of whom are the first in their families to attend college.
Michael J. Gilfeather, Orange Bank & Trust Company President and CEO, joined the Bank in March 2014.
