LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Before training camp and preseason begins this week, the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation held its Golf Classic at Bear's Best Las Vegas.
Fifteen players took part in the event, including Jonathan Marchessault, Alex Pietrangelo, and Mark Stone.
“I’ve been here for 2 and a half years now. I've realized how close this community is. It's been unfortunate with what’s happened in the last 18 months. We haven’t been able to do this kind of stuff like raise awareness and raise money, so it’s good to be back," said Mark Stone, team captain.
Over $215,000 was raised by participants at today's event for the VGK foundation, all benefiting numerous Las Vegas-based organizations.
The Golden Knights' preseason starts Sept. 26 with all preseason games airing on Channel 13.
