Graham SLAM 2019
We are happy to announce that on September 8 and 9, 2019, the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation will hold their annual charity event – Graham Slam – to raise funds to improve children's health and wellness and the development of junior golf across North America.
SEPTEMBER 9, 2019 | Golf | The Club at Spurwing
The Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation Vision:
Our vision is to foster an environment where children and families that are affected by emotional, behavioural, or mental illnesses are supported, not only in their home, but also in their workplaces, schools, and communities.
Our aim is to help put an end to mental health stigmas through promoting open conversations, where children feel safe to discuss their struggles and feel supported.
In addition, we hope to provide equal opportunity for junior golfers at all stages. We will strive to ensure that no golfer is held back due to lack of funds or resources.
