On the Green 18-Hole Round of Golf
Luckily, Mr. Sun was on full display and made for a perfect day of golf where adult and student players converged on the 18-hole championship golf course in a day filled with great golf, food, and beverages. We couldn’t be happier to see our Comet families bonding through golf.
The vast assortment of food throughout the golf course included “lechón a la vara” courtesy of COFRAN, delicious sandwiches by El Churry, tasty Puerto Rican Kikuet turnovers, savory hot dogs from Pan Pepín, and yummy burgers and nuggets donated by Wendy's and served by mascot Wendyta.
On the green, golfers had the opportunity to compete in Gross, Net, Parent/Child categories, the longest drive, closest to the pin, and two hole-in-one challenges that had participants trying their best –- some with "a little help from their friends" (i.e. mulligans, gimmies, or pro Fernando Bobonis) to win a Lexus!
Banquet & Awards Ceremony
The 18-hole round of golf was followed by the banquet activity where golfers enjoyed a sit-down dinner along with an exclusive beverage station sponsored by Méndez & Co., a raffle with fabulous prizes and auction options, including an 82 feet luxury yacht day charter donated by Paradis Yacht #CometMom Valerie Rodríguez, boxing gloves autographed by world renown champion and #CometDad Tito Trinidad, a 1-carat tennis bracelet courtesy of Joias donated by #CometDad Sammy Barlia’01, and two Carlos Correa baseball shirts secured by #CometDad Dr. Mario Polo.
The event ended with an awards ceremony with the winners receiving trophies created by our art students taught by Ms. Miriam Soto at the Commonwealth Campus. These lavish trophies left a lasting impression on our guests, as not only did these showcase the students’ incredible talent, but evidenced the amount of effort that went into developing these detailed golf-themed art pieces.
