RISE to Be Title Sponsor for Annual Golf Tourney

RISE Construction and the Ryan ‘Duce’ Morrissey Scholarship Fund announced this week that RISE has agreed to be the Title Sponsor of the Fund’s annual golf tournament, which includes a $15,000 donation. The 6th annual tournament is already sold out and will be held on July 30 in Hollis, NH.

Hank Locke said the sponsorship by RISE is a first for the organization, which has been growing into one of the larger scholarships in Charlestown.

“It’s a very important contribution,” he said. “We’ve been trying for a Title Sponsor for a couple of years now and they are the first to do it. We’re thrilled by the donation and we’re a great thing they came through.”

Eric Gould, of RISE and a Charlestown native, said he was happy to contribute.

“Although I did not know Ryan personally, I’ve learned from stories shared by Ryan’s family and friends what a great, well-rounded kid he was,” said Gould. “His scholarship fund is a means to honor his outgoing personality and caring ways while providing future opportunities to Charlestown teens. I was beyond humbled today to spend time with Duce’s father, Stephen, and the rest of the scholarship committee. I commend them for all their efforts to support Charlestown’s youth through Ryan’s scholarship. The RISE CM team and I are proud to support this very important scholarship, and we look forward to participating in the golf tournament named in honor of Ryan ‘Duce’ Morrissey.”
