“It was always a dream for my brothers and myself to play for the Regina Pats. Doug and I were lucky enough to wear the Pats crest and be a Regina Pat,” commented Pats alumni Kurt Wickeneiser (brother of Doug Wickenheiser). “Doug was a very humble man and made the city of Regina proud by being the number one pick in the world and made our family proud. It’s an honour to have the Regina Pats use his name, the Wickenheiser name, in honour of Doug. He would be very proud of it.”
Tee and hole sponsorships are available for $350 and are a great way for business to gain exposure while showing support of this fundraising event.
