Villanova Mug Arizin Links

Happy Thursday, ‘Nova Nation! Your old pal Chris here back from Summer vacation for a day to pitch you on an event that the good folks in the Atlanta Club are throwing this Fall.

The Villanova Club of Atlanta Scholarship Golf Outing and Dinner will take place on Monday October 1st this year, with the goal of creating an endowed scholarship for Villanova students from the Greater Atlanta Area.

If you live in the Atlanta area, will be traveling in the Atlanta area, or live within driving distance (looking at you Charlotte people), I highly encourage you to come out and have some fun for a good cause.

The Club has extended early-bird pricing through the end of the month, so act now or you’ll be kicking in more to hang with me, Brian Finneran, Mark Jackson and other Villanovans to kick off October.

And now, the “news.”
