Registration still open for Jr. Kings' golf tournament and dinner

With the Los Angeles Jr. Kings’ golf tournament and dinner just under three weeks away, organizers are working fast and furious to orchestrate a memorable afternoon for both those planning to hit the links and hockey enthusiasts alike.

All proceeds from the third annual event, which is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 4, at Mountain Gate Country Club in Los Angeles, benefit the Jr. Kings’ Financial Assistance Program and the Twin Peaks Cancer Foundation.

“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 and cancer research.”

The afternoon will showcase a number of special guests, among them former Los Angeles 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.

Other Kings and Jr. Kings alumni are sure to be in attendance, including Kings in-arena host Jay Flats.

“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 TaylorMade tent, which will be furnished with plenty of equipment and apparel.

“In the end, making hockey more affordable for our membership while getting behind cancer research 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. For more information and to register and/or attend, click here.
