JAKE MURPHY CHARITY CLASSIC
August 17th, 2019 at Harbour Pointe Golf Club
We’re back for our 4th Annual Jake Murphy Charity Classic! Expect to see many of the favorites or similar items we had in 2018 which included a $10,000 Hole-In-One Grand Prize opportunity and a $2,500 Long Putt Challenge, plus donated items for the auction such as a signed 1980 US Olympic Hockey Team Stick, Vancouver Canucks Tickets with a behind the scenes look with an NHL Ref, and NHL Seattle’s ‘Be an NHL GM for a Day’ with Dave Tippett and his staff. 2019 auction items and raffle prizes will begin to be announced in spring 2019.
In 2018, SYHA was able to provide scholarships to help three deserving players in our community. Building on the relationships Seattle Youth Hockey Assist has developed, the 2019 event is looking to be the best one yet.
Our inaugural event in 2016 saw 46 golfers and 16 sponsors come together to raise funds for a special cause…to help a former Totem family who had 3 month premature twin boys, Hunter and Brody Thompson. The boys are growing and developing but Brody still requires a trachea and feeding tube; however you wouldn’t know it by the most joyful nonstop smile you’ll ever see on a baby’s face.
2017 almost doubled our attendance with 84 participants, and we increased our sponsors to 20. We also more than doubled what we raised from 2016, tallying just over $11,000, to help support Youth and Junior hockey scholarships for players and families in need of financial assistance.
With new sponsors and participants in 2018, which was also the inaugural year for Seattle Youth Hockey Assist as an official nonprofit organization, we had an attendance of over 90 participants and over 25 corporate and individual sponsors and donors (auction items). The 2018 event raised almost $13,000 to provide Youth and Junior Hockey scholarships to players and families in need of financial assistance.
We can’t do this without all of you!
Proceeds help Seattle Youth Hockey Assist provide financial support
to Youth and Junior hockey players to continue playing the game we all love.
