The members of Colorado’s division- winning NHL franchise will slap around the golf ball before the season gets underway.
On September 15, the team will tee it up at the 18th Colorado Avalanche Charity Golf Classic at The Ridge at Castle Pines North. A foursome at the event, costs $4,000, includes four guests and an Avalanche player, coach or celebrity, and recognition as hole sponsor in tournament signage and program. Individuals can enter for $1,000. Proceeds benefit the community programs of the Colorado Avalanche supported by Kroenke Sports Charities. Last year’s edition raised $88,000 in service to those in need. Your group could include Joe Sakic, Patrick Roy, Nathan MacKinnon, Matt Duchene or even recent acquisition Jarome Iginla. Contact Deb Dowling ([email protected]; 303-405-1100) for more information.
Less than three weeks later, on Wednesday, October 1, the day before they face off in a preseason hockey game at The Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs, the Avalanche and Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings will play in a celebrity golf tournament at The Broadmoor. The $3,000 per-foursome entry fee will benefit the USA Hockey Foundation and covers breakfast, lunch, cocktail reception, ticket to the October 2 game, and a special guest from either team. Could one of them be Philip Anschutz, the intensely private owner of both The Broadmoor and the Kings?
