At the 2018 Rady Golf Classic, participants mingled with innovators and community leaders at the beautiful La Jolla Country Club to benefit fellowships at the Rady School of Management. Held on August 27, 2018, this signature fundraising event brought together corporate and community sponsors, Rady School alumni, faculty and student golfers.
We extend our gratitude to Cubic, which returned as the presenting sponsor for a second year, continuing its eight-year long partnership with the Rady School. Not only is Cubic supportive, it also turns out great golfers—the Cubic team won 2nd place in this year’s tournament! Matt Newsome, Senior Vice President and General Manager, shared that “The Rady Golf tournament is one of our favorite events of the year. It’s the perfect blend of comradery with fellow Cubic, San Diego, Rady and UC San Diego friends and colleagues while all for the benefit of graduate student fellowships. We are proud to be a sponsor of such a great event.”
The Rady School is grateful to steadfast supporter, Curtis Swindal of Morgan Stanley, who has sponsored the tournament every year. One of his Morgan Stanley team members, Arlene Brown, took home the women’s “closest to the pin” award.
“The accomplishments and success of the Rady School of Management are well-known throughout San Diego. PostalAnnex is pleased to provide its support through sponsorship at the annual Rady Golf Tournament. One of the best parts of the day is talking with current students and alumni who are part of our foursomes. Their dreams and work is indeed inspiring,” said Steve Goble, Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer, Annex Brands, Inc.
The 1st place award was won by a team that reflected the makeup of the course: a Rady administrator, community member and alumni Brett Blazys (MBA ‘14). “The Rady Golf Classic is my favorite event each year. From beautiful scenery to great food with Dean Sullivan and Ernest Rady himself, the built in comradery of the day is inspirational. Keeping in touch with old alumni and beating Bosco Lujan, is truly some of the most fun I have ever had on a golf course.” said Blazys. Lujan (MBA ’12) is a Rady School alum who continues to sponsor the Rady Golf Classic through Morgan Stanley and has won many years in a row.
UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep Khosla even tried his hand at the putting contest and connected with the golfers.
Current Rady students and alumni attended the event, sharing their Rady School experiences and demonstrating the lasting impact fellowship support. Among them was Danny Tyson (MBA ’16), who enjoyed his day on the course.
“My fellowship allowed me to obtain my MBA without the burden of student debt, which has given me a strong foundation on which to build my career,” Tyson said.
Supported in many ways by Ernest Rady, the Rady School develops ethical and entrepreneurial leaders who make a positive impact in the world through innovation, collaboration, and knowledge. The Rady Golf Classic is a wonderful opportunity to bring together the community in support of student fellowships and to honor Ernest Rady’s support of the organization.
