The third annual Freedom 55 Financial Thunder Bay Hockey Celebrity Golf Classic was held at the Whitewater Golf Course on July 24.

Each team of golfers was joined by one celebrity golfer to play 18 holes. Jordan, Eric, and Mark Staal were among a total of 30 hockey celebrities to take part in the event.

Glenn Craig, President & CEO of the Health Sciences Foundation, was impressed by the continuing effort and dedication put forth by the event organizers and supporters. “The Freedom 55 Financial Thunder Bay Hockey Celebrity Golf Classic is one more great example of this community coming together to support excellence in cancer care in Northwestern Ontario.”
Proceeds for the golf tournament benefit the Northern Cancer Research Foundation and in the past two years, the event has raised over $50,000.
