WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Archbishop Stepinac High School will honor the memory of the late Joseph Riverso, who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, by raising money for scholarships at the 13th annual Joe Riverso Memorial Golf Outing May 6 at the Brynwood Golf and Country Club in Armonk.

The golf outing takes place on what would have been Riverso’s 46th birthday. He was 34 when he was killed in the terrorist attack. The football and golf standout at Stepinac worked for Cantor Fitzgerald in the World Trade Center. He graduated from Iona College and returned to Stepinac in his adult life as an assistant football coach for 16 years.

Proceeds go toward the Jospeh Riverso Memorial Scholarship Fund at Stepinac, which has funded more than 50 scholarships for seniors going on to college. Last year, the White Plains Catholic school expanded the scholarships help students attend Stepinac who could not otherwise afford to.

The golf outing begins with an 11:30 a.m. registration and luncheon. There is a 1 p.m. shotgun start and a dinner and cocktail reception at 6 p.m.

There is a $250 donation per person for the full event and $75 for dinner only. Sponsors can purchase a hole sponsorships for $200, a tee for $100 and an awards sponsorship for $1,000.

There will be prizes for Top Three Foursomes, Closest to the Pin and Longest Drive, a Silent Sports Auction sponsored by Eagel Sports and raffles with prizes that include: 1st, $1,000 Las Vegas trip; 2nd, Apple iPad, and 3rd, Apple iTouch.
