The Peters & Pilon Celebrity Golf Tournament — Helping Kids Through SportsJul 16th, 2015
It is always with great pleasure that FFUN Motor Group has an opportunity to get involved with events that directly impact our local community, and especially kids. We were happy to support the Peters & Pilon Celebrity Golf Tournament held July 14th & 15th at the Dakota Dunes Golf Course.
Gary Peters and Rich Pilon are two individuals that understand how sports can positively affect a child’s life. These two former NHL players created the Peters & Pilon Celebrity Golf Tournament as a way to raise money and awareness about the need for sports in kids’ lives, especially those who are not given the same opportunities due to financial constraints.
Partnering with Kidsport, this was the tournament’s 10th year and perhaps the most fun. Paying tribute to New York Islanders, celebrity guests included Wendel Clark and Darryl Sittler (both Maple Leafs legends) along with six time Stanley Cup winner Brian Trottier. FFUN Motor Group was able to sponsor two ‘Holes-in-One’ for the tournament, the funds from which went directly towards helping fund local kids’ involvement in sports programs. The tournament was topped off with an amazing banquet including prize packages, silent and live auctions and the highly anticipated Hot-Stove interview with the hockey legends in attendance.
FFUN Motor Group sends a huge thank you to all those that helped make this year’s event a great success including all the volunteers and attendees. For more information on how you can get involved in next year’s Peters & Pilon Celebrity Golf Tournament visit them online petersandpilon.ca.
