COLUMBUS, OH - The Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation Golf Classic presented by First Communications, the Foundation’s largest fundraising event of the season, is set for Wednesday, September 12 at the exclusive Double Eagle Club. Attendees will have the opportunity to golf with Blue Jackets celebrities, broadcast personalities or special guest, former Cincinnati Bengals great Anthony Muñoz, in support of the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation. Proceeds raised from this event will be distributed to local non-profit organizations that support of the Foundation’s four main pillars of giving: pediatric cancer; children’s health and safety; education; and the development of youth and amateur hockey.
The tournament includes a draft party luncheon in which guests may bid to golf with their favorite celebrity; golf cart and greens fees; dinner and awards banquet presented by Huntington; and an exclusive Blue Jackets gift package.
