Philadelphia Flyers forward Mike Knuble will host a Celebrity Golf Invitational, featuring many of his Flyers teammates, as Dave & Buster’s presents the Mike Knuble Celebrity Golf Invitational at the Talamore Country Club in Ambler, PA, on Thursday, September 11. The Tournament will be a shotgun start scramble format beginning at 1 p.m. The inaugural charity golf tournament features exciting putting contests, tee prizes, a silent and live auction, reception, and awards ceremony hosted by Knuble. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Comcast-Spectacor Foundation and the Mike Knuble Family Foundation.
