Pat LaFontaine’s Charity Golf Event Raises Over $120,000 for Foundation

Hockey Hall of Famer Pat LaFontaine hosted his annual Companions in Courage (CiC) Foundation Golf Classic at Huntington Country Club on Long Island that raised over $120,000 for the foundation on Oct. 5.

LaFontaine was joined by a group of celebrities at the event, including Hockey Hall of Famer Clark Gillies, former NBA star Wally Szczerbiak and his father Walter, and retired hockey players Benoit Hogue, Bob Nystrom, Pat Jablonski, Randy Wood and Steve Webb.

Johnny Glavinic won the tournament with a 66, followed by Wally Szczerbiak’s 68. Szczerbiak’s foursome with Glavinic, Tommy Nagolo and Mike Matura captured the low gross team award with a 62. Greg Heinssen (longest drive), Brian O’Day (closest to pin) and Nike Patti Jr. (closest to goal) also won awards.

CiC serves almost 60,000 pediatric patients each year in North America with Xbox Kiosks and Lion’s Den playrooms.

CiC has 20 Lion’s Dens at hospitals scattered across North America with four being in the archdiocese — Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, Valhalla; Orange Regional Medical Center, Middletown; Mount Sinai’s Kravis Children’s Hospital, Manhattan, and New York Presbyterian’s Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, Manhattan. Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital opened the first Lion’s Den in 2005.
