ABOUT THE CAUSE
All proceeds of the Billy D'Antonio Summer Classic are donated to Nativity Preparatory Academy, a Roman Catholic middle school designed for highly self-motivated, economically disadvantaged students whose potential for academic success has been compromised by negative social and economic factors affecting them and their families.
All the funds are invested as a "Gift of Education". This gift supports a student's tuition cost to attend Nativity Prep for an entire academic year. This is the most powerful gift a young boy or girl can receive given the long term impact it can have for them over time.
After his year of teaching at Nativity, Billy made the difficult decision to leave the school he cared so much about and to work as a treasury analyst at John Hancock in Boston. He did not, however, forget his students at Nativity, as he asked about them often, and visited the school when he was home for the holidays. Truly, a piece of himself was left at Nativity, the school he really came to cherish.
Tragically, Billy passed away in March of 2013 while he was living in Boston. With a heavy heart, those who knew Billy closest, his family and friends, especially those from John Carroll and McQuaid, began to think of ideas to turn this incredible sadness into something positive for others, as Billy himself would have done. In the Spring of 2013, a committee met and conceptualized what is today known as the annual “Billy D’Antonio Summer Classic,” a tournament whose proceeds go towards supporting a cause near and dear to Billy’s heart, Nativity. This tournament combines three of Billy’s loves—golf, Nativity, and a great time with friends—and is an incredible way to honor someone who touched so many lives in his short 23 years on earth.
