New Rochelle, NY (November 5, 2015) Over $200,000 was raised in support of student scholarships, at this year's 42nd Annual Golf Outing at the prestigious Winged Foot Golf Club.

Iona College hosted 175 golfers and supporters on a beautiful, crisp fall day as they enjoyed the fast Winged Foot greens and friendly competition.

Guests enjoyed a lavish lunch, a full round of golf, followed by cocktails, dinner, prizes, a live and silent auction and presentations. Iona junior Giovani Holguin, recipient of a Winged Foot Scholarship, expressed his gratitude in a moving speech to the generous supporters.

"This scholarship has given me the opportunity of a life time to attend the college of my dreams," said Holguin. "At Iona I have been able to become the true man I 've always envisioned myself to be."
