Scores of Prep baseball alumni, members of the FDNY, family members and friends gathered on Friday, October 12th at the Clearview Golf Course to honor the memory of Daniel F. Pujdak '01, the hero firefighter who lost his life this past June while in the line of duty. Within hours of the news of Danny's tragic death, hundreds of phone calls and donations were recieved. These funds, together with proceeds from this Homecoming Golf Outing, have been utilized to establish a permanent memorial scholarship fund in Danny's name at St. Francis Prep. More than 200  alumni, FDNY colleagues, friends and family members participated in the event.     

The other Homecoming Weekend activities were also well supported, with record numbers attending the Friday night SFP Night at Sullivan's and the Saturday afternoon Day at Belmont. Thursday's Three-on-Three Hoops (in memory of Jimmy Prendergast '79 and Chris McMahon '76) and Sunday morning's 5K Fun Run (in memory of Vinny Giammona '79) had great turnouts as well, and the highlight of the weekend was the Football Terriers victory over Bishop Kellenberg on Sunday afternoon at St. John's.
