3rd Annual Kessel Klassic July 18

The Third Annual Kessel Klassic Golf Outing to benefit the Jeffrey Brian Kessel Memorial Scholarship at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford is scheduled for Friday, July 18.

The event will take place at the Pennhills Club in Bradford. A continental breakfast runs from 9 to 10:45 a.m., with a shotgun start to the golf outing set to begin at 11 a.m. An awards dinner is scheduled for 5 p.m. with a cocktail hour prior to that.

The Jeffrey Brian Kessel Memorial Scholarship was established at Pitt-Bradford by Ann and Dick Kessel. Jeff Kessel died of cancer in 2001 at the age of 41.

Kessel graduated from Pitt-Bradford in 1982 with a bachelor’s degree in social studies. He was a cousin of Dick Kessel and worked for his business Kessel Construction Inc. for 12 years, the last six as general manager.

Kessel was a dedicated community volunteer and leader, serving as mayor of Limestone, N.Y., from 1989 until 1999, when he was named Limestone’s Man of the Decade. Also in 1999, he received the Cattaraugus County (N.Y.) Community Leadership Award.

The Jeffrey Brian Kessel Memorial Scholarship is now supporting two Pitt-Bradford students annually, and a total of seven students have received scholarships from the fund since its inception.

All proceeds from the golf outing will benefit the scholarship fund. More than $4,000 in prizes will be available.

The outing is open to the public. The cost of both the dinner and golf outing is $135, which includes breakfast, greens fees, cart rental, lunch, beverages, a reception and prime rib dinner. The cost for the dinner only is $75, which includes a reception and prime rib dinner.

Sponsorship packages are also available in five different categories.

Registration is due by Friday, July 11.
