The 16th Annual GSB Classic Raises $100,000 Toward Need-Based Financial Aid

Over 96 GSB Community members joined together under bright 70’ skies on Monday, May 16, 2022, to partake in the 16th Annual GSB Classic at Hamilton Farm Golf Club. Severe thunderstorms threatened to interrupt the long-standing GSB tradition, but the tempest held off long enough for all to enjoy a lovely day of golf on an outstanding course with the additional benefit of supporting a worthy cause.

“This event started sixteen years ago at Hamilton Farm with the sole focus of supporting need-based financial aid,” Head of School Sid Rowell said in his welcoming remarks. “This year, we raised $100,000, which brings our total raised since the beginning of the event to $1.6 million. Thank you so much to everyone for coming out today and for supporting this cause.”

“This initiative helps kids who wouldn’t be able to attend Gill without the support,” explained Co-Chair Celeste Campos P ’21, ’24. “Working with my co-chairs Brenda and Steve Liberti over the past 3 years and seeing how many kids have benefited from what we are able to bring in is a great feeling.”

The day began with a continental breakfast and warm-up on the driving range and putting green. Golfers then moved into position on the pristine Highland Course for a Shotgun Start. Lunch was served on the course followed by an awards reception, complete with dinner and cocktails, at the end of the day. For those who wished to brush up on their golf skills, a golf clinic and round of 9-holes on the Hickory Course was presented as an alternative.

“Our supporters love to contribute to this event because Hamilton Farm is such a beautiful place to play, and they are happy to support such a wonderful cause,” said Co-Chair Brenda Liberti P '24, '26. “Chairing the event is a joy and having such a great team makes my job so much easier. It allows us to go out and have a great time.”

Throughout the day, fun competitions were held among the GSB families and friends. Winners were announced at the reception and included:
