Carl A. Bongiovanni Scholarship Golf Fundraising Event

2022 Event Summary

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Pittsburgh North Optimist Foundation and the Carl A. Bongiovanni Scholarship Committee, thank you all for your participation in the 2022 golf outing.  Your generosity netted over $20,000 to be given to deserving young people choosing a career in the construction trades.  We were delighted that one of our scholarship awardees was able to join us for dinner.


Besides great weather, great camaraderie, and great food, we had some great golf.  Here are the results of the skills events:

  • Hole 6 - Closest to the Pin – Tommy Leech

  • Hole 7 - Longest Drive Men – Jeff Varga

  • Hole 7 - Longest Drive Women – Maggie Scott

  • Hole 18 - Longest Putt – Tyler Vallano


  1. First Place: Pat Brady, Pat Smith, Matt Combi, Jon Thomas (-17)

  2. Second Place: Jay Hagerman, Jeff Varga, Josh Mabin, Steve Hart (-15, tie-breaker)

  3. Third Place: John Bongiovanni, Fred Leech, Tommy Leech, Eric Hurd (-15)

We have booked next year’s outing at the same place (Pittsburgh National Golf Club) on Friday, June 16, 2023.  Mark your calendars now!
