Sports celebrities came out swinging — their golf clubs, that is — when the nonprofit Clark Gillies Foundation held its annual Golf Invitational at the Huntington Crescent Club on July 28.
The former pro hockey player who helped lead the New York Islanders to four straight Stanley Cup wins four decades ago founded the nonprofit to improve the quality of life of children who are physically, developmentally, and/or financially challenged. The golf invitational is one of the group’s biggest annual fundraisers.
Besides Gillies, sports stars in attendance included “Miracle on Ice” U.S. Olympic hockey Team Captain Mike Eruzione, former NBA player Wally Szczerbiak, and NFL great John Schmitt.
