Besides the Hockey School that they run each fall, one of their main fundraising events is the Kinger Classic Golf Tournament that is put on each year by Mike and Katie King. Katie was a good high school friend of Brendon, who along with her husband Mike, turned a yearly gathering of eight or so friends vying for the Kinger Cup into a major fundraising event for the Foundation. Over the past few years they have raised over $60,000.
Mike does a terrific job each year providing a wide range of prizes for various winners as well as prizes drawn from a hat.
If you would like to have a great day on the golf course, you are encouraged to enter a team of four players into this tournament. If you own a business or work for a company who would like to be a hole sponsor for $300 contact Mike or Katie King by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 260-2879.
The Kinger Classic Golf Tournament happens July 30th, 2016 at Kingswood beginning at 1:30 pm. Registration is $125 per player or $500 per team. Carts are included. Following the tournament there will be a reception and prizes at McGuiness Landing Bar around 6:30 or 7 pm.
The Foundation was established to honour Brendon Oreto, a former Fredericton AAA hockey player who excelled at hockey before his accidental death in 1998 at the age of 19.
