Golf and Fun for a Good Cause

The 2010 Dallas Stars Dr Pepper Golf Classic was held on Nov. 8 and it was once again a great day, in more ways than one. For the third consecutive year, the event was held at the prestigious TPC at Craig Ranch 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. This year’s event raised close to $120,000. The Dallas Stars Foundation annually gives grants to worthy children’s charities in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, donating over $3 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 Lora Farris, 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 Stars held their morning practice on the day of the tournament at the McKinney Dr Pepper StarCenter, just east of the golf course. It made for an easy transition and a fun day.
“It’s always a great time to play in this tournament,” said Stars captain Brenden Morrow. “I think all of the guys appreciate the efforts that the Dallas Stars Foundation makes and it is great to participate in such a fun day.”

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.

The tournament featured four closest-to-the-pin contests, with some great prizes: a 52” Sony Bravia Plasma TV, a Lombardo Custom Suit, a One-year unlimited Top Golf package, and a Starpower Martin Logan Sound System.

There was also one longest drive contest, with the prize being a Dallas Stars team autographed jersey and 2 cases of Muscle Milk. And a hole-in-one-contest was featured with anyone holing it winning a Barrel of Herradura Tequila from Brown-Forman (unfortunately no one accomplished it).

The tournament concluded with a fabulous dinner in the clubhouse. Ralph Strangis and Daryl Reaugh emceed, with remarks from Gene Honermann, regional vice president/GM of Dr Pepper Snapple Group and Geoff Moore, executive vice president for the Stars.

“Overall, we couldn’t have had a more perfect day,” said Farris. “We’d like to thank Dr Pepper for their title sponsorship and continuous support and Craig Ranch for their partnership and help in putting together a flawless tournament. We’d also like to thank our product and prize sponsors for their generous donations: Brown-Forman, Ben E Keith, Al Biernat’s, American Airlines, Lombardo, Sony, Starpower, and Top Golf.  The quality of the prizes made for some fun and friendly competition throughout the day.”
