Habitat Newark is pleased to announce that Grant Marshall, one the retired stars of the 2003 Stanley Cup Champion New Jersey Devils, will be trading in his hockey stick for a golf club on Monday, June 28 to help raise money for the charity.
Marshall, who won the Stanley Cup with the Devils and the Dallas Stars, will be the surprise guest star for a lucky four-some at the annual golf outing, to be held at Glen Ridge Country Club, 555 Ridgewood Ave. in Glen Ridge. Lunch is at 11 a.m. and the shotgun starts is at 1 p.m.
For those who are unable to golf, they are cordially invited to the dinner, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Devils giveaways and other prizes will be awarded.
"We are grateful to Grant Marshall and the entire Devils organization for their support of Habitat Newark," said David Zurheide, executive director of the organization. "It is our hope that many people will turn out to our fundraiser to meet Grant, play a round of golf on a beautiful course and raise money for one of the most important charities in Newark."
Attendees can ask Marshall to recap his series-clinching goal in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals against the Tampa Bay Lightning in triple overtime in 2003. He'll also likely be asked about his assist on Jeff Friesen's series clinching goal in the following round.
Marshall was drafted 23rd overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft. Marshall has played 624 career NHL games, scoring 84 goals and 130 assists for 214 points. He now works for the Devils alumni association.
A limited number of corporate sponsorships are still available for the outing. Those interested should send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Habitat Newark at 973-624-3330. Golfers can also register through www.HabitatNewark.org
