Stanley Cup winning head coach Mike Sullivan will headline a stellar group of guests at the 2017 Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins GOAL IN ONE Golf Tournament, presented by GWC Warranty.
The two-day event will feature a VIP reception at the Westmoreland Club on Sunday, July 16, followed by the 18-hole, captain and crew format tournament at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club on Monday, July 17. Golfers will be treated to continental breakfast, lunch on the course, hors d’oeuvres and a pig roast dinner, as well as an open bar during the meal, and a special gift for each participant.
In addition to Sullivan, who spent part of the 2015-16 season behind the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton bench and has guided the Pittsburgh Penguins to the Stanley Cup Final for the second consecutive season, the tournament will feature several other current and former Wilkes-Barre/Scranton coaches.
Current New Jersey Devils head coach John Hynes, as well as Devils assistant Alain Nasreddine, will be on hand, as will Glenn Patrick, who guided the team during its first four seasons. Current Wilkes-Barre/Scranton coaches Clark Donatelli, Chris Taylor and J.D. Forrest, will participate as well.
More names will be added to the lineup in the near future.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Penguins GOALS Foundation, which provides young people and families with the opportunity to experience the game of hockey firsthand, as well as the Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge in Dallas, PA.
