June 2015 – Sherry Bassin, owner of the Erie Otters hockey club, hosted the fourth annual Bad to the Bone Charity Golf Classic on June 8 and welcomed more than 100 golfers to Wooden Sticks Golf Club in Uxbridge, ON.
In addition to the golf tournament, a silent and live auction held during the evening banquet were highlights of the event, with Mr. Bassin working his magic as both MC and auctioneer. Successful bidders took home Hockey memorabilia, jewelry, artwork and more. Top item was an official hockey jersey worn by top NHL pick Connor McDavid during the OHL finals, posted on EBay and auctioned live for $5,000.
