Golf Tournament & Dinner less than a week away

Don’t look now, but the Los Angeles Jr. Kings’ golf tournament and dinner is less than a week away.

All proceeds from the fourth annual event, which is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 31, at Mountain Gate Country Club in Los Angeles, benefit the Jr. Kings’ Financial Assistance Program.

“This is one of our club’s signature fundraisers, and it hasn’t taken long for it to become one of our most popular,” said Jr. Kings executive director Kelly Sorensen. “It’s a relaxed day and a great afternoon to play some golf, catch up with old friends and meet plenty of new ones, all in the spirit of supporting youth hockey.”

“We can’t say enough about the response this fundraiser has generated in its short history, and it just keeps getting bigger and better every year,” said Jeff Brockman, the lead organizer of the event. “We’re fortunate to be able to bring the Jr. Kings community together like this to celebrate the commencement of another hockey season while at the same time getting behind a worthy charitable cause.”

The afternoon will showcase a number of special guests, among them Los Angles Kings forwards Trevor Lewis, Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli.

Former Kings standouts Rob Blake, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last year, Nelson Emerson, Jaroslav Modry and Jamie Storr are also set to attend, along with former NHLer Valeri Bure.

Former Kings owner Bruce McNall, who helped architect the trade that brought Wayne Gretzky to L.A., and Rogie Vachon, the former Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender who also played for the Kings, will be in attendance as well.

“This event regularly attracts a lot of prestigious people from the hockey world, which obviously adds to the energy and excitement of the afternoon,” said Sorensen. “We’re lucky to have such generous people in our corner who help make the day such an enjoyable experience for everyone.”

What’s more, a silent auction will be conducted during the tournament and dinner, with plenty of sports and entertainment memorabilia up for bid.

And for the participating golfers, each will receive a complimentary $50 voucher for use at the on-site Nike Concept Shop, which will be furnished with plenty of equipment and apparel.

“In the end, making hockey more affordable for our membership is what we’re trying to accomplish, and it’s events like this, which bring so many selfless, charitable people together, that make that mission possible,” said Sorensen.

Registration will remain open until the day of the tournament.
