Special Events

Trustees Invitational at Winged Foot Golf Club

For over 40 years, Iona College alumni, friends, faculty and staff have gathered to play at Winged Foot’s championship courses, while raising money for the Winged Foot Scholarship at Iona College. The Winged Foot Scholarship at Iona College has been in existence for more than 40 years. It is a relationship forged in mutual respect between two esteemed institutions with a shared vision — the support of higher education. Both have grown in stature and reputation through this relationship and continue to enjoy many benefits. Among these benefits is the opportunity for Winged Foot employees and their families to qualify for scholarships at Iona College. Iona College is grateful to Winged Foot Golf Club and the people who participate in this event for making a college education possible for many students in financial need, who might not otherwise be able to attend Iona College.

Winter Auction & Christmas Celebration

This annual event allows attendees to enjoy an evening of holiday shopping while supporting the students of Iona. Guests enjoy Christmas cheer, while participating in competitive yet friendly bidding facilitated by electronic bidding software. This event was created to raise funds to support Iona College students in their quest for higher education and to award members of the Iona College community who, by sharing their time and resources with others, embody the mission of the College and its founders, the Edmund Rice Christian Brothers. All of the proceeds raised from the auction will be used to support student-centered initiatives at Iona, including professional development and extracurricular activities.

Trustees Scholarship Award Gala

For over 50 years, alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students have gathered at the annual Trustees Scholarship Award Gala to support Iona College as we present the Legacy and Blessed Edmund Rice Humanitarian Awards. The Iona College Legacy Award is traditionally bestowed upon unique individuals in recognition of their lifetime accomplishments. The award is presented as a symbol of what can be achieved in life. Iona College also takes great honor in presenting the Blessed Edmund Rice Humanitarian Award to an individual who embodies the mission and life of Blessed Edmund Rice, founder of the Congregation of Christian Brothers. All proceeds from this event benefit Iona College students in their quest for higher education.
