FRAMINGHAM - As the Stanley Cup finalist Boston Bruins dropped the puck on a new season, Framingham Youth Hockey is preparing for its 19th Annual Charity Golf Outing. The Tournament is Monday, October 28th at the Charter Oaks Country Club in Hudson, and features the opportunity for golfers to play on one of the most sought after courses in Massachusetts, a buffet dinner and live and silent auction.

Golf Tournament Raises College Scholarships Dollars, Helps Defray Costs to Allow More Kids to Play Hockey

The proceeds of the golf tournament are used to award up to 5 scholarships to High School seniors who will be attending college in the coming year, and have played as members of the Framingham Youth Hockey Program for at least 3 seasons. Dollars raised also go towards deferring the cost of playing hockey for Framingham Jr. Flyers players.

“Families are struggling with the increasing costs of college – this is one small way we can give back to the community and help out children and their families,” said Bob Lewis, President of Framingham Youth Hockey. ‘Hockey can be an expensive sport – equipment and ice time. We don't want kids that want to play this exciting sport unable to do so because of the cost. The dollars raised from this event are pumped right back into defraying the cost of ice time and making it easier for families to afford.”

To date, more than 50 college scholarships have been awarded. More than 500 boys and girls are a part of Framingham youth hockey. “Hockey is a sport that teaches commitment, sportsmanship, being a team player – these are lessons that last a lifetime and the more kids that have that opportunity the better off we are as a community,” added Lewis.

For those interested in playing, the cost is $185 per player, which includes lunch, golf, cart, and dinner.  Dinner only tickets are available for $50 per person.
