Saskatoon's premium fund-raising golf tournament and banquet is returning this summer with celebrity host Calgary Flames head coach, Glen Gulutzan.

Saskatchewan-raised Gulutzan is a proud supporter of men's health in our province and the Driving Fore Prostate Golf Classic. Proceeds from the seventh annual Driving Fore Prostate Golf Classic on July 18 at the Dakota Dunes Golf Links will help purchase a GreenLight Laser XPS that will bring the latest advancements in urological care to the Leslie and Irene Dubé Urology Centre of Health at St. Paul's Hospital.

 Willie Desjardins and the Urology Associates enjoy the Driving Fore Prostate golf tournament in 2016.

The Leslie and Irene Dubé Urology Centre of Health provides valuable guidance and exceptional care to patients all over Saskatchewan facing a range of urological illnesses. Patients who are treated using the GreenLight Laser XPS experience fewer post-operative complications, faster recovery times, shorter hospital stays, few post-operative procedures, and higher patient satisfaction.

When asked, Glen Gulutzan didn't hesitate to help out by lending his name to the tournament. Glen, along with other celebrities like well-known author, Yann Martel, and recently retired Saskatchewan Roughrider, Chris Best, will be golfing with Celebrity Team sponsors on July 18 in support of this excellent cause.

In addition to the tournament, the very popular, star-powered Kids on Ice Camp returns this year. Event sponsors will have the opportunity to bring a child to join hockey celebrities and sponsored children from Northern communities at a half-day skating and hockey skills camp on July 17 at Schroh Arena. The day includes a meet-and-greet with the stars, the skills camp and lunch.

Ron Hyggen, CEO of Athabasca Basin Security, is the inspiration behind Kids on Ice. "We're pleased to once again be involved with Driving Fore Prostate and really excited to offer these kids the once in a lifetime opportunity of skating with hockey stars again this year."
