Mario Lemieux, Bryan Trottier, Phil Bourque and Pierre Larouche will lead a team of over 25 former Penguins players at the 11th Annual Penguins Alumni Charity Classic on Monday, August 11 at Valley Brook Country Club in McMurray, PA.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Heart Camp, Achieva, The Mario Lemieux Foundation and the Western PA School for the Deaf. Over the past 10 years, the event has donated $250,000 to local children’s charities.
Alumni members traveling to Pittsburgh to compete in the charity tournament include Gary Rissling, Al McDonough, Denis Herron, Mitch Lamoureux, Dennis Owchar and Ed Gilbert.
“It will be a wonderful time for reminiscing with old teammates while assisting a variety of children’s charities,” stated Penguins Alumni Association President Warren Young. “We have received tremendous support from the community, and we are all looking forward to a great event.”
Each foursome will be accompanied by one Penguins alumnus as they compete in the scramble-style tournament for prizes.
In addition to 18 holes of golf, the event includes a cocktail reception, dinner and silent & live auctions.
