The College of Staten Island (CSI) Foundation will host its sixth annual “CSI Alumni and Friends Golf Outing” on Friday, April 28, at Staten Island’s South Shore Country Club in Huguenot.

The ticket price of the golf outing is $175 and includes green fees for 18 holes of golf, use of a cart, beverages on the course, breakfast buffet and a deluxe barbecue lunch. For the non-golfer, tickets to the luncheon are available for $50.

Breakfast and registration will begin at 7 a.m. with a shotgun tee-off following at 8 a.m.

All proceeds will benefit the CSI athletics department, scholarships and undergraduate research opportunities that will help prepare CSI students for continued success after graduation.

John Mazza, president of Adak Contractors & Consultants, Annadale, is chairing the event. Involved with the CSI Foundation for five years, Mr. Mazza has served as golf outing chair for three years.

“I am proud to have supported the CSI golf outing as a sponsor since its inception and privileged to serve as chair for three consecutive years,” said Mazza. “My support helps so many deserving students pursue their educational goals, but I can’t do it alone. I encourage everyone to join us, either by participating in a rousing round of golf or becoming an event sponsor. Either way, your participation and sponsorship are solid investments in our students and our community.”

Kiwanis and the Grace Foundation and is a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Mr. Mazza recently received the distinguished past president award for his term in 2004-2005. The Tottenville resident and his wife, Jodi, have three children.
