2nd Annual International Golf & Lobster Bake Fundraiser

PRESS RELEASE

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.

Hello Carolina Lightning Families new and returning,

The online store is off-line while Kim and I restock the shelves...so to speak.  We anticipate having the player's jerseys, socks and warm-ups loaded within next couple of days.

Reminder about the Exchange > not just for Gear

Lightning families – wanted to remind everyone that the Exchange is open for our members.  You may use the exchange for traditional gear or intangibles such as locating a family who can share a clinic:

Examples: 

1) Your daughter is interested in June clinic but has swim meets EVERY Tuesday…perhaps another family would be willing to share the clinic and take Tuesdays?

2) Your son is signed up for July clinics but your family will be on vacation the second week of July…perhaps another family would be willing to take that week?

3) Your son has grown 2 ½ feet since mid February and outgrown everything and has new skates that he wore four times… (okay so I am exaggerating a bit but you get the jest). 

To list an item on the exchange just follow the Exchange button on the LEFT side of full website.  

Thanks,

Marcella

Summer Camp Olympic Skills with Megan Bozek is open

Hey all,

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.

 

Here is the link http://www.proambitions.com/schedules_nc.htm

 

If team managers could get the word out asap to their teams.  Thanks!

 

Happy new year! Let me know if you have any questions :)
