The 2019 Rugby Alumni Dinner

Fri, March 8th

7pm @ The Prep

Our Alumni Dinner is a night to celebrate the bond between the alumni who started FP Rugby back in 1976, our most recent alumni, and our current players and their families, to raise money to support the Rugby Program and to enjoy the storied history of our great Club.  It's an opportunity for us to thank our alumni for the incredible support that they have provided in the rebirth of the Rugby Program at Fordham Prep in the Spring of 2011, and that they continue to show to our boys.

On this night we also celebrate our 4-year players.  Student athletes who have grown with the program from Freshman to JV to our Varsity side.  It's the commitment of players such as these and their families who add so much to the success of the Fordham Prep Rugby Teams on the field.

This year we will celebrate seniors: Jack Butler-Boyle, Seamus Cooper, Owen Fitzgerald, George Gaspar, William McFadden, Evan McStay, Danny Murray, Nick Palermo, Devin Pettus, Matt Romano, Giancarlo Taormina, Jack Tenney, Sean Tobin, Tomas Vidal, & William Woods.



    It takes so much to run a successful rugby program -- which brings the gift of this great sport to approximately 100 Fordham Prep athletes each year.  Our Alumni Dinner is our main fundraiser, but so many people give of their time, treasure and talent throughout the season as well.  Fordham Prep Rugby would like to thank the following friends and companies for their extraordinary support and contributions to ensure the success of the 2019 Spring Season and upcoming Ireland Tour:
