Haaski Open Links Golf Community

Alumni, students, faculty, and staff swung their clubs for Haas May 13 at the 11th annual Haaski Golf Open at the Claremont Country Club in Oakland, helping to raise nearly $50,000 for the Haas Fund.

The Ed and Mollie Arnold Award was presented to Jeff Rhode, BA 95 (Hist.), MA 00 (Ed.), former director of corporate and foundation relations at Haas. A founder of the tournament, Rhode has worked in development roles at several UC Berkeley units, including Berkeley-Haas, the College of Engineering, and University Relations. He currently is the assistant dean of development at the University of Pacific Dental School.

The award was renamed from the Haas Leadership Award to honor Ed Arnold, BS 40, a loyal and generous volunteer, and his wife, Mollie, who recently passed away.

The tournament's winning foursome was composed of Ken Rosen, chairman of the Haas School's Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics; Adjunct Professor Bill Falik; Grant Inman, MBA 69, and Nick Shannahan, MBA 13.
