HARTNETT GOLF CLASSIC 2019 RECAP
The 41st annual Fr. Richard G. Hartnett, S.J. Memorial Golf Classic brought together more than 130 Jesuit alumni, parents, and supporters on a flawless Monday afternoon, April 29, 2019, for a great cause – Jesuit's financial aid program.
Carrollwood Country Club was in superb condition, and the event's longtime exclusive Platinum Sponsor, the Columbia Restaurant, closed the day with a sensational dinner of Paella, 1905 Salad, and Flan.
The Hartnett total of more than $40,000 raised directly benefits Jesuit students with demonstrated financial need. More than 30% of all Jesuit students receive financial assistance, in large part due to events such as the Hartnett Classic, which generates funds through sponsorships, player registration, and raffle sales.
Mothers’ Club Hartnett Committee chair Cindy Strady, P '19 and numerous volunteers made the event operate smoothly, setting the tone for a fabulous day.

Fr. Richard G. Hartnett, S.J. dedicated 62 years of his life to Jesuit High School. He was a graduate of the Class of 1930, a Jesuit priest, teacher, alumni chaplain, school archivist, and historian.
In 1979, Jesuit’s Alumni Association established the annual Fr. Richard G. Hartnett, S.J. Golf Classic to raise money for the school’s financial aid program for needy students. The tournament’s original organizers included James J. “Buddy” Clark ’38, Manuel Corral ’37, Victor DiMaio ’42, Sam Ferlita ’38, and Sal Urso ’44.
Their intent was to bring together Jesuit alumni and friends to benefit the Fr. Hartnett Endowment Fund, and as a way of honoring Fr. Hartnett’s lifelong commitment and service to Jesuit High School. The Classic now raises more than $30,000 annually, and in its four decades has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to help Jesuit's financial aid.
Fr. Hartnett passed away in 2004, but his legacy and impact on the school lives on in the minds of thousands of Jesuit alumni, and in the Fr. Richard G. Hartnett, S.J. Memorial Golf Classic, which is believed to be Tampa Bay's longest continuously running charity golf event.
