Blues\' Charity Efforts Up to Par
Eric Brewer and his teammates participated in the 14 Fund Golf Classic at Meadowbrook Country Club on Monday, Oct. 6.
Eric Brewer stepped onto the green, looked around and noticed the video cameras were recording his every move.

Then, just like a pro, he stepped up and drained a 15-foot putt with ease.

“It’s the only time I’ve contributed (all day),” Brewer said immediately after making the putt. “We’ve cheated on every hole.”

Brewer was participating in the second annual 14 Fund Golf Classic, an event held to raise money for the St. Louis Blues 14 Fund. The event gives Blues players and management a chance to get into the community and play 18-holes with some of the club’s biggest sponsors, including Scottrade, Pepsi, Peoples National Bank and more.

For the Blues, it’s an opportunity to put names with faces and raise money for a good cause.

“It’s real important. Charities are obviously a big deal,” said Blues forward Brad Boyes. “When you’re fortunate enough to do what we do, we’re lucky.

“To be able to give back to raise money for people who aren’t as fortunate as we are, that’s something that’s real important.”

The St. Louis Blues 14 Fund was established in 1998 to honor former Blues player Doug Wickenheiser, who passed away from a long battle with cancer in 1999. The charitable organization donates money to positively impact the health and wellness of youth, including cancer awareness and prevention.

For $2,000, groups of four players received a round of golf with Blues celebrities, including players, coaches, management and alumni, in a six-person scramble at Meadowbrook Country Club in Ballwin. Participants also received a buffet lunch, a Blues gift package and dinner reception.

“(I’m for) anything that has to do with the 14 Fund,” said Bernie Federko, who played in Monday’s tournament and currently serves as the color commentator for Blues games on television. “The city of St. Louis has been so great to all of us. It’s very important to be part of the community. Anything we can do to help anybody, we just love to do it.”

Last year’s Golf Classic raised more than $40,000 for the 14 Fund.

“Charities are important in every community, but especially in St. Louis,” said Blues TV play-by-play announcer John Kelly. “I had the pleasure of knowing Doug (Wickenheiser) and seeing him play. He was a great, great person. To have the 14 Fund named after such a quality individual…I know somewhere Doug is very proud of the people here today and all the money raised.”
