2014 Golf Classic Another Big Success

Manchester, NH

Thank you to everyone that supported our Ninth Annual Golf Classic, presented by Bauer. Our event was held July 11 at the Stonebridge Country Club in Goffstown. As Gregg Moffett told those in attendance “we are extremely grateful to all the players, sponsors, contributors (gifts in kind) and volunteers that help make this event one of the best in the state, each and every year”.

Once again we enjoyed marvelous weather and it was a great way to spend time with our hockey family and friends. Golfers who arrived early were provided free chair massages prior to tee off by Andrea Kuhman of Arias Spa in Manchester.

L to R: Teammates: Former teammates Bruce Parker, Roger Letourneau, Chuck Kyle, Greg Wright and Steve Murphy reunite.

The event was kicked off with a message from Greg Moffett, President of the New Hampshire Legends of Hockey (Legends). He gave special thanks and recognition to our “Presenting Sponsor, Bauer (Global Headquarters) of Exeter, NH and our Gold Sponsor, St. Paul’s School of Concord”. In addition thanked our nine Silver and twenty-five Bronze Sponsors which are listed below.
