Golfing FORE a GREAT cause

There's still time to bid on an opportunity to join Oilers legends Wayne Gretzky and Glen Sather on the golf course

by Cam Tait /

Walking with Wayne.

Caddying for Glen Sather.

But time is running out to bid.

Once-in-a-lifetime experiences are waiting for hockey and golf fans when the 2nd annual Celebrity Pro-Am, part of the Syncrude Oil Country Championship presented by AECON, tees off at the Windermere Golf and Country Club on August 1, 2017.

Former Edmonton Oiler great and current OEG Vice Chair Wayne Gretzky is playing in the Celebrity Pro-Am and fans can bid for a chance to walk all 18 holes with Mr. Gretzky.

But the fun doesn't end after you walk off the 18th green. You will attend a VIP reception followed by dinner and get to meet other well-known personalities and celebrities

In another package, people are bidding on the chance to caddie for former Oilers Head Coach, General Manager and President Glen Sather.

Tip to the highest bidder: bring an unlit cigar. Mr. Sather will be a lifetime friend.

Mr. Sather is a seasoned storyteller. No doubt between taking his club from you he will share stories of his countless hockey experiences, starting with the Edmonton Oil Kings in the mid-1960s. He is now the president of the New York Rangers.

And while those are two really exciting opportunities, the real winner is the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation. Funds raised from these auction items will benefit the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) who will channel the proceeds to support the Pediatric Procedure Room at Glenrose.

That means young children and their families will get the best care and support when they need it the most.

Edmontonians and Albertans are known for their generosity, and when the bidding closes Monday, June 26 at 8:00 PM MT (with staggered end times), it will be a win-win for the two highest bidders and the community alike.

Mr. Gretzky and Mr. Sather are two classy men and they will welcome you into their wide circle of friends. These two incredible experiences will surely be unforgettable.

Word is they can also hit a golf ball pretty well.
