Each year, the Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation 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.
In 2019, the Foundation will continue its fundraising efforts through the Graham Slam event in their hometown of Boise, ID. The Boise community has been Graham and Ruby's home since they met at Boise State University, and where they have built their lives and family over the past decade.
In 2019, the Graham & Ruby DeLaet Foundation will refine its vision within the children’s health and wellness spectrum, to focus on children's mental health and wellbeing.
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.
Since 2013, Graham Slam has raised over $1.5 million for charitable organizations across Saskatchewan that reflect the Foundation's mission. Previous beneficiary's of the event include:
Graham Slam 2019 will kick off the night before the tournament with a Superhero themed soiree. The Superhero Soiree will be a semi-formal event and will feature food, entertainment and special guests.
It will include a plated dinner, a live auction, a special PGA Tour & Web.com Tour celebrity golf shootout, drinks, a comedy performance, and an opportunity to meet Graham DeLaet and his celebrity friends.
The Graham Slam Golf Tournament will take place at The Club at Spurwing, one of Boise’s most beautiful courses. The tournament includes a golf clinic with Graham DeLaet and his professional golfer friends, an 18-hole tournament with carts, great prizes and swag, as well as a cocktail reception to follow play.
