With the sun shining and the temperature nearing 35 degrees Celsius, the 4rd
annual VIA Rail OneGoal Classic Golf Tournament took place on August 16th, 2011
at the Greystone Golf Club in Milton, Ontario and was a great success.
It was a can't miss for the hockey community with participants teeing off in support of OneGoal's "Grow the Game" initiatives including Try Hockey Programs and the ever growing OneGoal Equipment Program.
The yearly event is one of OneGoal's biggest fundraisers. Bill Hattem, Executive Director for OneGoal, described the tournament as "our biggest social event of the year – and growing." and was extremely pleased with the turnout.
Hattem praised the hockey community for helping to make the OneGoal tournament as successful as it is, saying that "anyone involved in the hockey world, whatever business they have with the sport wanted to be here because it helps support the initiatives we have to grow the game. Growing hockey is good for everybody; it's good for businesses, it's good for fans, for kids, for families. It's just a win-win-win situation for everyone."
Special guests such as Hockey Night in Canada's Elliotte Friedman as the event's Emcee along with NHL players such as Ray Emery, Colby Armstrong, Jonas Gustavsson, Matt Stajan and others added great value to all in attendance and were an exciting addition to this fun filled day.
