Pat Vincent Dinner-Dance is a Huge Success

12/1/2010--The Saint Mary’s College Rugby Alumni Association hosted the third annual Pat Vincent Dinner Dance and Fundraiser on Saturday, November 20, 2010.   More than 300 hundred alumni, parents, friends, coaches and rugby players attended the event in the Soda Center which raised more than $60,000 to benefit the Saint Mary’s College Rugby Program and the Pat Vincent Endowment.  

Guests had the opportunity to interact with this year’s team and hear from Head Coach Tim O’Brien about their preparations for another successful season.  The evening included two raffles, both a silent and a live auction and a presentation of the Pat Vincent Lifetime Achievement Award to Br. Martin Ash, FSC ’62.  The evening ended with live music entertainment by Butch Whacks and the Glass Packs.  

The Rugby Program would like to thank the evening’s sponsors including MAPFRE, Rhea Harris, Dan Baradat ’72, Sean Devine ’72, Robert Frei, Margaret ’89 and Matt Heafey ’88, Mike Kelly ’73, Mark Murray ’83, Karie and Steve Patching, Brad Andrews ’71, Ghilotti Bros. Contractors, Mike Ghilotti ’84, Al Murray ’61, and Bryan Porter for their generous and continued support.

Join us at Pat Vincent Field for this year’s rugby season which is already underway.
