Charity Golf Tourney to Benefit Midwest Hockey Players

Kansas City, MO- May 12, 2017– The Tyler Frederes Memorial Fund (TFMF) will host its 4th annual charity golf tournament on Monday, July 31 at the Deuce at the National Golf Club in Kansas City, 6415 N. National Drive. The 4-person scramble will begin with registration at 8 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Cost per golfer is $150 and includes a tournament polo, green fees, lunch, practice range, and golf cart. There are also several sponsorship opportunities available, ranging from a hole sponsor for $200 to a tournament sponsor for $3000.

The charity was created in 2013 after 22-year-old Tyler Frederes was tragically killed in a single car accident while visiting family in Kansas City. Tyler played hockey for 16 years – from Kansas City in his youth to Boston and New York for junior and college hockey. Tyler’s family created the TFMF as a way to honor him, bring together those he touched, salute his love for the game and assist those who had the same passion for hockey, regardless of their financial situation.

The golf tournament raises funds for deserving hockey players in the Midwest Amateur Hockey Association (MWAHA). At the 2015 tournament, the Frederes family presented MWAHA with $10,000, enabling 13 players throughout the Midwest to pursue their dreams in hockey. At the 2016 tournament, over 175 supporters were on hand as the Frederes family presented MWAHA with a check for $12,000. This year’s check presentation is expected to be $15,000.

“A deserving young hockey player from each USA Hockey Association across Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska will benefit from the warmth and generosity of the Frederes Family and the Tyler Frederes Memorial Golf Tournament they have organized. It’s a wonderful thing that Debby and Mick have done to honor their son, Tyler. The Mid-West Amateur Hockey Affiliate is very privileged to be part of this program,” said MWAHA past-President Les Teplicky.

The annual golf tournament brings together family, friends, coaches and teammates from all over the country to remember Tyler. “It’s a day all those who loved Tyler can come together, reminisce, have fun and raise money for kids who play the sport Tyler loved so much,” said father Mick Frederes.

Tyler Frederes Memorial Fund Mission Statement: To develop and enhance the lives of young deserving hockey players by providing resources that educate and build character, teamwork and value-based life lessons through the game of hockey.
