The Timothy "Arch" Manning open golf tournament, held each summer in the Western New York area, benefits the Timothy J. Manning '85 Memorial Scholarship Fund for St. Bonaventure University.
This is the longest-running scholarship event at St. Bonaventure and classmates and family keep this great tradition going in honor of Tim, who was killed in a car accident in 1989. All proceeds from the golf outing and followup picnic gathering benefit the scholarship fund.

This annual golf outing was started in 2002 in memory of Rob Peraza, a 1994 St. Bonaventure graduate who was killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center. Rob, who also earned his MBA at St. Bonaventure, was an outstanding rugby player during his time on campus.
The golf outing helps raise funds for "The Robert David Peraza Memorial Scholarship Fund," an endowed needs-based scholarship awarded to an incoming freshman rugby player.
