Philadelphia PGA Professionals Faceoff Against NJPGA Professionals in Inaugural Charitable Hockey Game To Support PGA REACH
First Year Event to Benefit PGA REACH Philadelphia Foundation, While Future Events will be Alternatively Hosted by Each Section to Benefit Respective Foundation
Lower Gwynedd Township, PA., February 27, 2018 … On Saturday, February 24th, PGA Professionals from the Philadelphia and New Jersey PGA Sections put away their golf clubs and picked up hockey sticks for their first “cross-section” annual charity hockey game. In total, 25 PGA Professionals laced up their skates and competed “Section against Section” in the charitable event held at the Ice Line Arena in West Chester, PA.
In a spirited contest, Team New Jersey came away victorious, with NJ PGA Professional Michael Postorino (Edgewood Country Club) leading the way, scoring 4 goals.
The inaugural event raised several thousand dollars through ticket sales, and a raffle featuring memorabilia that was donated by the Philadelphia Flyers. All proceeds will support PGA REACH Philadelphia Foundation programming for youth, military & special needs. In future years, the two sections plan to enhance the event while alternately hosting the game each year, and with proceeds benefitting the host section’s foundation. The 2019 contest will benefit the New Jersey Golf Foundation.
