New York, JULY 23, 2013 – Brad Richards announced today that his charitable foundation will hold the inaugural Brad Richards Charity Golf Classic at the Scarsdale Golf Club in Westchester County to benefit the Brad Richards Foundation on August 26th, 2013.
“I am looking forward to hosting my inaugural golf event in New York and to raising money to help children suffering from life-threatening illnesses,” said Richards. “New York is one of my favorite cities in the world and I encourage the fans to join us for a day of golf and entertainment in support of a great cause.”
Individual tickets include a pre-golf brunch, a round of golf and a dinner that will feature silent and live auctions with the chance to win a variety of items and experiences. Foursomes and hole sponsorship opportunities are also available for purchase.
The Brad Richards Foundation, launched by Richards in 2007, helps to provide exceptional experiences and treatment for children and families enduring chronic and life-threatening illness. The foundation also supports the advancement of youth and amateur sports. The BRF has helped support pediatric efforts in Richards’ hometown, Prince Edward Island, Canada and since Richards’ arrival in New York, has supported multiple New York area hospitals. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai.
