The foundation also hosted its third annual Kids Golf Clinic, attended by more than 25 children and teenagers who are fighting cancer, in remission, or have a family member with cancer. PGA professional Jim Tennant taught the kids how to putt and drive, with
Wally the Green Monster showing up to offer encouragement.
