The 4th Annual Brian Cashmere Memorial Golf Tournament was held at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club in Mountaintop. All proceeds from the event went to benefit the Brian Cashmere Memorial Scholarship, which was awarded at the dinner following the tournament. The Scholarship Committee would like to thank all of those who participated in this year’s tournament.

The foursome of Rocky Barge, Vinny Depalma, Rob Glicinfer, and Mike Sokolowski won this year’s tournament with a score of 59 in the captain and crew format, and received the Memorial Trophy.

This year’s event was able to raise close to $6,000. In addition to money from other fundraisers held throughout the year, the scholarship award totaled $8,000. This year’s recipient, and the first recipient of the Brian Cashmere Memorial Scholarship was Kaylene Sutkowski, an outstanding student at Pittston Area who was well deserving of the award.

The Brian Cashmere Scholarship was set up in memory of Brian by his friends as way to highlight his life and accomplishments, and promote education in the community by awarding a graduating senior with a scholarship in his name. Brian was a student at Pittston Area, who tragically passed away the summer before his senior year of high school in 2001. His academic and athletic accomplishments, as well as his endearing personality, impressed all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
