Alumni Events

Golf Tournament

The 33rd Annual O’Dea Golf Tournament will be held Monday, June 17, 2019 at The Golf Club at Newcastle – China Creek. This event sells out annually so make sure you register your foursome now; you don’t miss out on the fun! The tourney is open to everyone, 21+, not just O’Dea Alumni. To help sponsor our tournament, please contact David Mazzeo in the Advancement Office at 206-622-0722. Proceeds from the tournament will help fund the Edmund Rice Leadership Awards, granted for excellence in the classroom and service in the community. Recipients of these awards will be given $2,000 annually to assist with their tuition, starting their freshman year.

Memorial Mass

O’Dea High School celebrated its annual Alumni Memorial Mass on Thursday, November 1, 2018, honoring all deceased O’Dea alumni at St. James Cathedral. Over 70 alumni, friends and family attended this event, along with the entire O’Dea student body, faculty and staff. Our next Alumni Memorial Mass will be held in January of 2020.

Alumni – Senior Class Brunch

This annual event celebrates the O’Dea Brotherhood and will take place at the Washington Athletic Club May 24, 2019. Present at this occasion are alumni from various decades, the entire O’Dea senior class and selected staff. This is a great opportunity for the alumni to meet and greet the new wave of young men, soon to be joining the O’Dea Alumni Association. In addition, this is an amazing networking opportunity for the O’Dea seniors; they can ask questions and get to know about various professional endeavors of men who were once in their shoes as students of O’Dea High School. If you are interested in attending this event, please contact David Mazzeo ’99 at 206-622-0722 or dmazzeo@odea.org.
