Pittsburgh Golf Outing

The Pittsburgh Chapter of AITP held its annual scholarship fundraiser golf outing August 2, 2014 at Butlers Golf course in Elizabeth Pa. and was by far one of the most successful in our history. It was a great warm sunny day and everyone enjoyed the day for the worthwhile cause. There was not one negative comment.

Nancy See and volunteers did an excellent job on getting the food on time as the golfers came in and kept all the raffles flowing. Denise Patrizio did an excellent job handling our golf outing account. Phil Svesnik again helped us with sponsorships and getting the prizes. One of the charter elements of our organization is to provide a place for Information Technology professionals to learn about new technology and improve their skills. We also sponsor student organizations and provide them with the opportunity to meet with experienced professionals and receive firsthand information about their chosen career. Our annual scholarship awards are made to members of these student organizations in recognition of the effort they put forth both academically and professionally.

Through the generosity of our sponsors and golfers, this year’s Golf Outing was one of the most successful in our history. We received more than our goal and will be able to provide a scholarship to a deserving student.

Our volunteers were Nancy See, Bob Costiloe, Joni Masley and Rachel Whitlinger’ (last year’s scholarship recipient) and Ken Krugh. Ken and Bob took pictures and uploaded them for your viewing at To view them, enter email address and password aitppgh4u
