Black Bear Casino Resort has teamed with the Cloquet Rotary Club as the major sponsor of the Hook and Slice On Ice Golf Classic.

Hook and Slice On Ice is a one-of-a-kind charity golf tournament in which participants use a tennis ball and their choice of golf equipment to play a challenging and unusual course groomed atop the ice of Chub Lake. 

"We are so pleased to have Black Bear be our major sponsor for the 10th anniversary of Hook and Slice," said Steve Mickey, co-chair of the event. "One hundred percent of the proceeds go to benefit people in the area, especially children."

This is the first year Black Bear has sponsored the annual charity fundraising event scheduled for Feb. 12 in Carlton. Proceeds from this year's event will be used toward scholarships given to students from Cloquet, Esko, and Carlton High Schools, as well as other area causes, including donating books and dictionaries to most of the area schools.

In previous years, participants have used everything from hockey sticks to actual golf clubs to play the course which features fairways lined with recycled Christmas trees and elaborately and creatively decorated tee boxes.

"It's a wonderful and fun event, and we are happy to have a part in making it happen," said Rocky Wilkinson, Black Bear Casino Resort marketing manager. "We are proud to partner with the Rotary Club to help them raise money to benefit the community."
