2nd Annual International Golf & Lobster Bake Fundraiser
WAKE FOREST, NC – Carolina Lightning Hockey presented the 2nd Annual International Golf & Lobster Bake Fundraiser on May 16, 2015 at the Heritage Golf Club in Wake Forest NC.
It was a huge success and everyone involved had a great time!
Last year’s event drew 30 golfers. This year’s International Golf & Lobster Bake hosted 60 golfers locally and from as far away as Canada, Maine, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and South Carolina.
This year’s event raised over $5,000 for the Lightning’s Willie Lubbers Memorial Fund. This fund provides financial aid to boys and girls, and young men and women who otherwise would not be able to participate in the great sport of ice hockey. (Sergeant Major Willie Lubbers was a great friend to many at Carolina Lightning Hockey. He was a highly decorated war veteran (Purple Heart, 3 Bronze Stars, and Legion of Merit). Tragically, Willie was killed in 2012 during a Veterans Day Parade in Midland Texas but his spirit lives on).
Golfers were treated to beautiful North Carolina weather and 18 challenging holes at the Heritage Golf Course. After golf, more than 120 guests were served to dinner, drinks and live music by the pool, including fresh lobsters flown in that same day from Maine.
Carolina Lightning would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our sponsors; our golfers, hole sponsors, vendors, caterer, and everyone who made a donation in support of all of the great kids at Carolina Lightning Hockey.
A very special thanks to Mr. Keith Gleason who planned and orchestrated this incredible event.
Due to popular demand, our 3rd Annual International Golf & Lobster Bake Fundraiser will be held in May of 2016. Please visit our website and more information will be available as the time draws nearer.

Summer Camp Olympic Skills with Megan Bozek is open
Just wanted to let you all know that registration for summer camp Olympic Skills with Megan Bozek is live. To my understanding there are limited spots available so first come first serve. This is not just for Lightning ladies but for all girls who are interested so make sure parents know that it will fill up rather quick.
Camp will run Aug 3-7 2015 at RCI. There is a full day and a half day option (although it looks like there is a typo on the half day option. I believe half day campers check out at 12:30.) There will also be a goalie camp as well.
