Could you please run the following announcement on GMG? We are continuing to raise money in Aran and Ryan Patrican’s memory for Aran’s now two-year old son, Thomas. Thank you for all that you do to support our proud community. JD Perry
The Patrican Memorial Golf Tournament will take place at the Beverly Golf & Tennis Club on July 22. The money raised at this event will benefit Thomas Patrican whose father, Aran, a decorated Gloucester Police Department and dedicated father, was tragically taken from us by a viral heart infection in January 2012, just after his only son’s first birthday.
The winning foursome will have their names engraved on and hold the two-foot tall Stanley Cup replica trophy until the tournament next year. Immediately following the round of 18 holes will be a lunch with raffle prizes.
Cost is $125 per player ($500 per foursome), if you would like to play please contact Rob Bouchie at 617-638-4910 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As Paul Genovese touchingly and succinctly announced on his Facebook page:
As you know Thomas Patrican’s father Aran Patrican and uncle Ryan Patrican were taken from us far too early, Aran was a dedicated father, police officer, and very good friend to manyof us. We are hoping to raise funds so Thomas will have an education fund when he finishes high school and can make his wayto college without a financial burden. This tournament was started not only to help raise money for Thomas but to also pause and remember two of our very good friends, Aran & Ryan Patrican,
thanks to all who participate and make this worthwhile event a
