The idea to hold a fundraiser was the last chance to hopefully generate enough cash to keep the Wings of Steel operating and to afford the cost of ice time. Mike Costantino proposed the idea of a golf outing to a skeptical group. The success of the first outing was more than enough to convince folks that this was a real life-saver for the Team and their needs. That first year, was an easy learning curve with the appearance of Flyers veteran players that played and gave time to the kids that helped host the event. Mike is instrumental in pulling together sponsorship for the lunch and dinner service and also beverage service on the course and at dinner which keeps the cost of the outing affordable. Throughout the year, up to the next scheduled outing, Mike also seeks out opportunity to gather any additional support that would help the success of this event.

When Mike approached Ramblewood they were more than accommodating in helping set up the first event and continue, even with a change in corporate ownership, to be the ‘go-to’ for this very important event.

Ramblewood Country Club has been a steadfast supporter since the inception of this event. They have helped the club by allowing the tournament to always kick off the last Friday in April, making it a day our participants plan for in advance. Especially of note is that the Ramblewood staff is always gracious and helpful in any way to make this day a success for the kids who play in the Wings of Steel Sled hockey team.
