They’re baaaaackkkkk.

With only nine weeks left before tee-off, we are thrilled to announce that former NHL stars Mike Palmateer and Gary Leeman will be back to sign autographs, schmooze and shake hands as participating celebrities at our 4th Annual Charity Golf Classic, which will be held at the Lebovic Golf Club in Aurora, Ont., on Wed., June 12, 2019.

“I am thrilled to be coming back to this great event,” said Leeman, who produced 466 points during his 15 NHL seasons, was part of a Stanley Cup-winning team with the Montreal Canadiens, and became the second Toronto Maple Leaf in history to score 50 goals in a season. “I've met a whole lot of nice people through B'nai Brith and I'm looking forward to seeing them and meeting new people on June 12.”

“I love the B'nai Brith Classic," added Palmateer, a former star NHL goalie who won 129 games as a member of the Leafs. “B'nai Brith does a whole lot of good work and it's fantastic to be part of its events.”

Leeman and Palmateer join an already star-studded class of celebrities attending the tournament, including NHL Hall of Famer Marcel Dionne and Canadian horse-racing legend Sandy Hawley.
