Golf and Fun for a Good Cause

The 2009 Dallas Stars Dr Pepper Golf Classic was held on Nov. 2 and it was once again a great day, in more ways than one. For the second consecutive year, the event was held at the prestigious Craig Ranch Golf Course in McKinney. Reviews were positive from all participants, including most of the Dallas Stars players, coaching staff and front office, golfing to help raise money for the Dallas Stars Foundation.

The weather could not have been better, as clear skies and comfortable temperatures made for ideal playing conditions.

The event is one of the Dallas Stars Foundation’s biggest fundraisers helping the organization continue to have a positive impact on the North Texas community. The Dallas Stars Foundation annually gives grants to worthy children’s charities in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, donating over $2.7 million since 1998.

“The Dallas Stars Dr Pepper Golf Classic is always a great event and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how this year’s tournament turned out,” said Carla Rosenberg, executive director of the Dallas Stars Foundation. “We couldn’t do it without the help of our title sponsor Dr Pepper, and corporate partner Craig Ranch. And of course our players and coaches were fabulous in taking time to come support our cause. We really appreciate everyone involved.”

“The players practiced earlier in the day at the new Dr Pepper Starcenter in Craig Ranch, so it was a seamless transition when the team came straight to the golf course after practice,” said Rosenberg.

Monday’s tournament also featured Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket’s BaD Radio Show with Bob & Dan broadcasting live on-site. The Dallas Stars Ice Girls were out on the course as well, taking photos with all of the four-somes.

There were two hole-in-one opportunities to win a BMW 750Li or a BMW Z4, as well as a hole-in-one contest to win Stars season tickets for the remainder of the season. While no one found the hole from the tee box, Alex Auld actually came the closest, dropping a shot within 10 feet from the pin on the par-three 7th hole.

Mark Fistric won the contest for longest drive, sending his ball 400 yards into the fairway. Marty Turco won the closest to the pin contest, dropping his shot just three feet, four inches from the hole.

The tournament concluded with a fabulous dinner in the clubhouse. Ralph Strangis and Daryl Reaugh emceed, with remarks from Stars President Jeff Cogen thanking the players for participating. Golf analyst and former pro David Feherty was the featured speaker and did not disappoint with his unique way of telling stories.

“Overall, we couldn’t have tee’d up a more perfect day,” said Rosenberg. “We’d like to extend a special thanks to Diageo, Ben E Keith, BMW, American Airlines and Crest Cadillac/Infinity for their generosity in providing great prizes and product to our participants.”
