I’m grateful to have the opportunity to work with KidSport Winnipeg in breaking down the financial barriers that keep kids out of the game.”

The golf classic is in support of KidSport Winnipeg and all proceeds will go towards paying the registration fees for kids from financially disadvantaged families so they can participate in sports.
