The 2014 Joe Pavelski Charity Golf Tournament presented by the Stevens Point Brewery is just two weeks away, so I wanted to post a reminder for anyone who may be interested in attending the the annual event.
Once again, the former Wisconsin All-American, two-time U.S. Olympian and current San Jose Sharks center Joe Pavelski will be on hand to host the charity event, with proceeds going to benefit the Stevens Point Area Youth Hockey Association.
This year's event will take place June 27 at the Stevens Point Country Club.
Golfers will play 18 holes in a scramble-style format. There are hole prizes all around the course, as well as various games and prize giveaways from various companies from around the Stevens Point area.
After the round, golfers will be treated to a fabulous catered meal from the Stevens Point Country Club. There will also be a live auction and raffle, which is always amazing to watch. Past auction items have included trips to see the Sharks play in San Jose, autographed jerseys, autographed sticks, autographed pictures, golf packages and a bevy of other awesome prizes.
You can sign up for the charity tournament as a team ($500) or individual ($125) through the website pavelskigolf.com. You may also sign up for the reception only for $30.
I've personally attended the event every year since its inception and can vouch that this is an awesome event to attend. Pavelski, who most reading this site will remember for winning a national championship with the Badgers in 2006, is one of the nicest and most down-to-earth professional athletes I've ever met. He'll sign autographs and take pictures for anyone attending the event.
If you have a chance to make the tournament, I encourage you to go. Not only is it a great opportunity to meet Joe and play a round of golf at a beautiful golf course, but the proceeds go to benefit youth hockey. I think we can all get down with that cause.
If you have any questions about the tournament, they have contact information on the website pavelskigolf.com.
