It was recently made official that the inaugural Henrique/Montour Golf Classic, which was scheduled for early July, has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
Hosted by Anaheim Ducks forward and Burford resident Adam Henrique and Buffalo Sabres defenceman and Ohsweken resident Brandon Montour, this event; which was supposed to have taken place on July 7th at the Brantford Golf and Country Club, was a fundraiser for the Arnold Anderson Sports Fund.
“I’m upset that we had to cancel but there’s a more serious matter going on as we felt it was the best option for this summer,” Montour said. “Next summer’s 1st annual golf tournament will be even better!”
Montour went on to add, “Anderson Sports fund is an older foundation around Brant County that raises money to help get children involved in sports. For our first year, they were happy to help out with the process as we want to do something similar but also raising (money) to help kids in Six Nations and Burford.”
According to Montour, the tournament which included gold, prizes, dinner and of course an opportunity to mingle with NHL stars was sold out in days.
In a joint news release Montour and Henrique said, “We want to extend a thank you to everyone at the Arnold Anderson Sports Fund and the golf committee who have worked tremendously hard in organizing this tournament. Thank you to all the sponsors and golfers who had committed for this year.”
The inaugural Henrique/ Montour tournament has been rescheduled for July 13th 2021 at the Brantford Golf and Country Club.
