WESTFIELD — On November 19, the College Men’s Club of Westfield held their third annual Texas Hold ’Em Tournament at the Kenilworth VFW, where they raised money to support their mission of providing college scholarships to deserving young men in the local community. The winners were Vincent Coyle, first place; Brian Boufarah, second place, and Mark O’Brien, third place.
The College Men’s Club is an all-volunteer organization that was founded in 1922 by a group of college graduates who wanted to provide money for higher educational opportunities to deserving young men in the community. Last year, it awarded over $60,000 in scholarships and it has raised over $1 million in scholarship money in its history. The club has helped many students with financial need, particularly those who might not otherwise be considered for assistance. Students who are struggling with life issues, or need to work after school to help support their families, gain special consideration. The club looks closely at those who need the extra help, yet have a strong desire to attend college and succeed in life. The College Men’s Club would like to thank everyone who attended the event and their major donors for making this another successful fund-raising effort.
Please visit www.cmcwestfield.org where you can learn more about the College Men’s Club and make a donation to help the young men of Westfield realize their dreams.
The Club’s next major fundraiser will be their annual boxing night on Friday, February 3, 2017.
