The 2017 Tyler Frederes Memorial Golf Tournament has been set for Monday, July 31 at the Deuce at the National. The tournament raises funds for deserving hockey players in the Midwest Amateur Hockey Association (MWAHA). The funds pay for fees, dues, or expenses the player is unable to pay, which would hinder or restrict him/her from playing hockey.
Funds raised from the inaugural Tyler Frederes Memorial Golf Tournament were distributed in 2015 to 13 deserving players in the Midwest Amateur Hockey Association, totaling $10,000. The 2015 tournament exceeded that goal, with $12,000 distributed at the beginning of the 2016 hockey season. After another successful year, we anticipate distributing $15,000 to players in 2017. You can sign up for the tournament today or donate directly to this great cause, a memorial to our son Tyler and the sport he loved, and in the process, your support will give other kids a chance to play!
