New York Islanders Childrens Foundation Golf Outing
Held at the iconic Bethpage State Park Golf Course on Long Island, the New York Islanders Children’s Foundation launched their 4th annual golf outing on September 14th. Taking place in a dramatic setting which has twice been home to the U.S. Open; fans, celebrities, and standout players from the Islanders squad gathered together for an excellent cause.

Designed to benefit programs that create opportunities for children throughout Long Island while inspiring interest and support for youth hockey programs, the foundation continues to raise funding through generous events such as their exciting golf tournament.
The young, vibrant Islanders team showed their full support, as nearly the entire roster was present, including owner Charles Wong and head coach Jack Capuano.
Attendees were treated to a truly unique golfing experience, including brunch at the famous Carlyle on the Green, a barbecue lunch on the course, as well as a cocktail hour and dinner reception following the tournament. Prizes and gifts were also given away, and players had the chance to bid on a selection of special hockey experiences, courtesy of the Islanders.
