Bronco Bench Foundation

The 33rd Annual Bronco Bench Golf Classic at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club on Thurs., Sept. 8, 2011 : Celebrating 50 Years of Supporting Santa Clara Athletics!

To the right: Pat Malley and Sal Sanfilippo.

Santa Clara student-athletes are living the dream.

A dream brought to life by the original board of the Bronco Bench Foundation: Pat Malley, Leo Ruth, Ed Panelli, Jack Going, John McHenry, John Cottrell, Ed Bevilacqua, Sal Sanfilippo and Joseph Henderson. These men along with the charter members Victor Bruni, MG Del Mutolo, S. Campisi, Victor Corsiglia Sr, Edward Fellows, George Figone, John Felice, Michael Guerra, Victor LoBue, Sam Della Maggiore, Peter Mancuso, Louis Pasquinelli, Frank Pisano, Aaron Richards, Phil Sanflippo and Bernard Vogel JR, created the foundation for Santa Clara Athletics as we know it today.

All of you who support the Bronco Bench continue that legacy. During the next 18 months we will be celebrating the history of the Bronco Bench and Santa Clara Athletics. As a part of that celebration we would like it if you shared your favorite memories or stories about Santa Clara athletics. Send us your favorite story and give us your permission to publish them so that we can share our wonderful history as we create our wonderful future. Happy 50th birthday Bronco Bench Foundation and many happy returns.
