The 25th Annual Golf Tournament of the RI Society of CPAs (RISCPA) was an enjoyable day from start to finish for society members and all golfers who participated, as well as a successful day for the tournament's charitable causes. Nearly $20,000 dollars was raised at the event held on July 25th at the Warwick Country Club which drew over 140 golfers from the ranks of local CPAs, finance professionals, and attorneys. Half of the proceeds raised will go to Community Preparatory of South Providence, an independent school which serves a culturally and economically diverse student body, where over 96% of students receive substantial financial aid. This marks the third year in a row that RISCPA has chosen Community Prep as the recipient for the charity tournament, and several students from the school as well as Development Director Lisa Dantas participated in the day. The remaining amount raised will go toward the RISCPA Philanthropic Fund at the RI Foundation.
"We are very grateful for the enthusiasm of our members and all golfers who participated, and deeply appreciative of the generosity of our sponsors who made the day the success it was," says RISCPA President Robert Mancini. "We are pleased and proud to once again make a donation to such a worthy entity as Community Prep School, as well as donate to the RISCPA Fund at the RI Foundation." The annual RISCPA Golf Tournament has raised over $200,000 dollars for local charities spanning the quarter of a century that the event has been held.
