Bedminster, NJ (November 20, 2019) – Sordoni Construction, a Bedminster-based construction management company, recently donated $30,000 to Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City. The construction company raised the money during the 2019 Sordoni Construction Golf Classic in September. During the event, more than 100 golfers, clients, guests, and Sordoni Staff Members enjoyed golf, food and networking.

Helping Students Stay Fit
All funds will support renovations at Saint Peter’s Victor R. Yanitelli, S.J. Recreational Life Center (RLC). The complex, which includes gyms, a pool, a fitness center and many other amenities, opened in 1975. The university is planning to modernize the facility and this donation will support the renovation project. It is part of the university’s focus on caring for the whole person, not just working on academic skills. “We are grateful to Sordoni Construction for their support and their belief in our mission,” said Leah Leto, Saint Peter’s President for Advancement and External Affairs.

Happy to Help
The golf outing was so successful that Sordoni plans to make it an annual tradition. CEO Matthew Lorenzo said, “We take tremendous pride in not just being a builder, but also being a good citizen in our community. It is important for Sordoni to support members of our community like Saint Peter’s University. They do great work in transforming the lives of their students and we are honored to have them as the beneficiary of this event.”
