The Philadelphia Flyers Celebrity Golf Invitational is set to take place tomorrow.  Proceeds will benefit the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation.  Complete details are below.

(Via the Philadelphia Flyers) – Philadelphia, PA. (September 10, 2012) – Members of the Philadelphia Flyers will participate in the Philadelphia Flyers Celebrity Golf Invitational at Trump National in Pine Hill, NJ, on Tuesday, September 11. Proceeds of the Tournament, which is being presented by AlliedBarton Security Services, Fastrack Construction, and Philadelphia Property Management Corporation, will benefit the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation.

In addition to golfing with members of the Flyers and Alumni, guests can bid on many one-of-a-kind priceless items in the silent and live auctions, including a trip on Ed Snider’s private jet to attend a Flyers road game, a wine tasting with Coach Peter Laviolette at his home, the opportunity to be in the 2012-13 Team Photo and many more. Golf begins at 12 p.m. with a 5:30 p.m. dinner and awards reception.

Honorary Co-Chairs of the Tournament are Flyers Danny Briere, Scott Hartnell, and Kimmo Timonen.
A limited number of sponsorships opportunities are available at or by calling 215-952-5780.

The beneficiary of this event is the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation; a 501 (c) (3) charity serving 3,000 inner-city children through its multi-faceted recreational and supplemental educational programs. The mission of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation is to use the sport of hockey to educate young people to succeed in the game of life.

Snider Hockey provides free “learn to skate” programs, public skating opportunities, ice hockey instruction, and league play, including all equipment, as well supplemental academic services at no charge to inner city boys and girls. The Philadelphia Parks & Recreation will continue to maintain the rinks.

Snider Hockey, largely through a personal commitment by Ed Snider, contributed $6.5 million to match a grant from the Commonwealth’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program to refurbish 4 City Rinks. This unprecedented public/private partnership resulted in a $13 million restoration project to preserve year round after-school, recreational, and supplemental educational activities for children, youth, and families at 4 public ice rinks, all of which are located in under-resourced inner-city neighborhoods.
