The 2018 Beneficiary:
Each year, the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation holds their annual charity event in DeLaet's home province of Saskatchewan – Graham Slam – to raise funds to improve children's health and wellness and the development of junior golf across Canada.
Starting in 2017, Graham Slam integrated a junior golf tournament into the event - the DeLaet Cup. Operated in conjunction with the Canadian Junior Golf Association, the DeLaet Cup hosts qualifiers across Canada prior to the final event, with 24 of Canada’s top junior golfers gaining the opportunity to compete in the prestigious tournament. The qualifiers produce 12 top juniors from the East and West coming together in Saskatchewan to play a Ryder Cup style match. DeLaet is present throughout the tournament to watch the juniors’ performances and provide mentorship through clinics and golf talks.
Since 2013, Graham Slam has raised over $1 million for charitable organizations across Saskatchewan that reflect the Foundation's mission. Previous beneficiary's of the event include:
The Gala includes a plated dinner, drinks, gift bags, opportunity to meet Graham DeLaet and other celebrities, and comedy performance,.
