“As always, the players will sign autographs and talk with participants,” said Susan Brown, HK’s Tournament Committee co-chair. “It’s a great opportunity for fans to meet sports celebrities, while helping out a great cause.”

All proceeds from the 2018 tournament will benefit Lake Regional Cardiopulmonary Rehab, which cares for more than 3,000 patients annually. The department will purchase a new heart monitoring system that will double the number of new patients the department can accept. Plus, the new system monitors patients’ oxygen levels more comfortably and consistently during exercise, and it includes hand-held technology, so nurses will be able to monitor their patients while standing next to them.
