On Sunday, February 19, 2023, the Detroit Red Wings Alumni will play professionals from the Michigan PGA at Belfor rink at Little Caesars Arena (click HERE to view the Michigan PGA Player Roster). The goal of the game is to raise money for three veterans’ organizations targeting Michigan veterans, PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), Folds of Honor, and Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP).
The game will be two 30-minute run time periods starting at 3:00pm. After the game, there will be a meet and greet with pizza and beverages. Some of the Detroit Red Wing Alumni will include Derian Hatcher, Darren McCarty, Joe Kocur, Dino Ciccarelli, Larry Murphy, John Ogrodnick, Ed Mio, Jason Woolley, and Mickey Redmond.
Detroit Red Wing Alumni Vladimir Konstantinov will be dropping the puck to kick off the game. Vladdy played for the Red Wings from 1991 – 1997 and was part of the famous Russian Five and helped the Red Wings win the Stanley Cup in 1997.
Players are raising $500 each to play and we are looking for additional sponsorship at a variety of levels. See sponsorship packages below.
Unfortunately, this event is not open to the general public.
PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. Golf Professionals across Michigan volunteer time to introduce veterans to the great sport of golf and the program is free for veterans.
Yellow Ribbon Fund: Yellow Ribbon Fund was one of the first veteran service organizations to recognize the importance of keeping family together during the critical recuperation phase. Through the creation of our key programs: Crossroads and Keystone, we are able to make an impact on veterans and their families all around the world. Visit yellowribbonfund.org.
Folds of Honor: Folds of Honor provides life-changing scholarships to the spouses and children of America’s fallen or disabled military as well as America’s first responders. On our watch, those who protect our freedoms and families know they are not forgotten.
Thank you for your consideration. On behalf of PGA HOPE, Folds of Honor, and Yellow Ribbon we hope you can help us have some fun while enriching these wonderful organizations that do so much for Michigan veterans.
